Dr. Steven Dickens
I received my DDS degree with Distinction in 2003 then completed my orthodontic residency and Master’s degree all from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (go Tar Heels!). Giving back to our community is extremely important to me. That is why I launched a scholarship program where we provide braces at no cost to disadvantaged children. I am so grateful to be in a profession that not only provides kids with healthy, brand new smiles, but also boosts their self-esteem. We are all more capable of reaching our full potential when we feel good about ourselves. I love being able to be part of that.
My wife, Liz, and I live in Matthews with our four unique, challenging and amazing children. We love spending time together as a family, especially traveling and cheering our favorite teams (Tar Heels, Panthers and Hornets). Liz and I have completed many races together, including the NYC Marathon, which I am extremely proud of. I’m also passionate about photography, and I hope to someday be as good as my Pulitzer Prize winning uncle.
I truly love people and taking care of them. Doing everything possible to treat my patients and staff with kindness, respect, and compassion brings me great joy. I will always take the time to explain your treatment options or cover any questions or concerns you have, so please don’t hesitate to ask. I look forward to giving you the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve!
Our office’s number-one priority is to exceed your expectations in our quality of care and service. For you, this means a convenient, on time appointment schedule, flexible payment plans, and a friendly, knowledgeable staff.

A Passion for Creating Beautiful Smiles
We are proud to have a reputation of excellence in the local community. Dr. Dickens is a strong proponent of personalized patient care and customized treatment plans that are tailor-made to each individual. To us, orthodontics isn’t just about straightening teeth; it’s about creating beautiful, healthy smiles in a warm, nurturing environment. It’s all about the details!
We use the latest technology like the iTero® scanner and digital X-rays to ensure your comfort and give you the best care possible. This digital system does not use processing chemicals so it is also environmentally friendly! We also utilize the newest technology in low-force and low-friction braces, often resulting in a shorter treatment time and less discomfort experienced during your care.
A Warm & Inviting Atmosphere
We know that going to the orthodontist can be an intimidating experience for some, so we make our office unlike any other. From the moment you walk in our door, it is evident that ours is no ordinary doctor’s office. From the aroma of fresh coffee and warm cookies baking to the smiles at the front desk, you might actually feel like you have just been welcomed home.
Along with fresh coffee and warm cookies, we also offer two game rooms, iPads, a photo booth, a movie theater with family-friendly movies, and a computer area with two Apple desktops. We even have workspaces for parents to work on their laptops or kids who want to work on homework while they wait! We proudly go the extra mile to ensure our patients receive the best possible care, which includes a top-of-the-line office atmosphere.
