Steven Hernandez, DMD


Why did you become a dentist?

Being a dentist allows me to help people with an aspect of their health that many times goes overlooked and also provides an opportunity to educate them improving their self-care.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients?

The moment of realization and understanding about how they can improve their health and peace of mind with routine home care.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice?

ATSU provides a dental training education that closely mirrors the challenges, patient demographic and treatment that is found in community health centers making them an excellent fit.

If you could be anything else, what would you want to be?

After a career as a provider, being a dental teacher/professor would be a different venue to continue helping not only future dentists but also patients.

Do you have hobbies or a way you like to spend your time away from work?

Exercise, going to watch movies, and learning/listening to music.

Do you have a favorite book, movie or TV show?

Watching basketball is a favorite pastime, above all watching the Chicago Bulls.
