Meet Dr. Snow

Dr. Stephen R. Snow
Dr. Stephen Snow is an award-winning Danville dentist who is devoted to protecting, restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of smiles with conservative and innovative procedures.

Educational Excellence

Dr. Snow garnered a strong science background at the University of California, Berkeley (ranked as one of the most competitive programs in the country), where he received a bachelors degree in Biology with Phi Beta Kappa honors. He then received his DDS degree from UCLA, known for its exceptional academic reputation, graduating first in his class. Since obtaining his degree, he has maintained his commitment to excellence in education by successfully completing thousands of hours of continuing education coursework to ensure that his patients have access to the most advanced procedures and technology.

Avocational Artistry

His artistic sensitivity initially developed out of a passion for music, which led to a 15-year career as a professional musician. His dexterous musician’s hands make him an especially skillful dentist. He is also an accomplished photographer and watercolor artist with a highly developed aesthetic eye that translates into dental treatment that is crafted to look both beautiful and natural.

"A mentor once told me that a good dentist is part skilled sculptor and part caring communicator. I have found that my natural instincts for artistic expression and listening compassion are a perfect fit for pursuing this profession."
–Dr. Stephen Snow
