Rockville, MD Kids Dentist serving Potomac and Gaithersburg
Kids Teeth, LLC
Dr. Steven Tan was born and raised in beautiful Northern California, just 30 minutes away from San Francisco. He prides myself in being an educational nomad receiving his BA at Yale University, DMD dental degree at Nova Southeastern (NSU) in South Florida, Advanced Education in General Dentistry certificate in Baltimore, and completing his specialization in pediatric dentistry at NYU-Lutheran Medical Center.
Throughout his career he has been honored with accolades including NYU-Lutheran Best Research Project in Pediatric Dentistry, the NSU Chancellor’s Scholarship, and been featured on FOX 45 Baltimore as a guest speaker for National Children’s Dental Health Month. He is currently an active member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Maryland State Dental Association, and an executive board member of the Southern Maryland Dental Society.
His love for pediatric dentistry comes from community service activities including Team Smile Redskins events and previously having led mission trips to Jamaica and Nicaragua, teaching dental WIC courses, and serving as Chair of NSU’s Give Kids A Smile chapter. He believes in dentistry as a public service and that every child should receive high quality compassionate care.
He moved to Maryland to live with my wife, Ashley, a pediatric optometrist in Chevy Chase. When not busy watching over their Shiba Inu puppy, he enjoys watching movies, following the latest video games, and swimming. One interesting fact about Dr. Tan me is that he once served as a novice Buddhist monk. He is excited to be a part of the Kids Teeth crew and looks forward to meeting you and your children.
