Stephanie Steckel, DDS, MS

Orthodontics and Invisalign Therapy Specialist

“Since establishing my Dover orthodontic practice, I’ve enjoyed providing excellent orthodontic experiences for my patients. I also appreciate the opportunity to help patients understand the importance of their daily habits and how they can maintain their oral health.
“Orthodontics can improve a person’s appearance and have an enduring impact on his or her life. I find the constant developments in my field fascinating. My practice is very different from what it was in 1995, and each new advance in orthodontics gives patients better results with a more comfortable experience.”


“I attended the University of California in Los Angeles, where I earned my bachelor of science in biochemistry. I continued at UCLA to achieve my doctorate of dental surgery. I completed my general practice residency at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, followed by a post-doctoral master’s degree and certification in orthodontics at the Medical College of Georgia.”

Continuing Education

“As an officer with the Mid-Atlantic Orthodontic Society, I help organize and provide continuing education for the organization’s members in the spring and fall each year, as well as a monthly study club. I participate in Invisalign monthly webinars, which are a great source of education for remote learners. I also write a blog on a variety of topics that relate to modern orthodontic treatment.”

Outside the Office

“My husband, Steve, and I met at UCLA. He was a research chemist at Dupont and is now our office manager/consultant, as well as the First Honorary Mayor of Central Delaware. We love spending time with our dog, Hartly. We’re training him for canine agility competitions just like we keep up our own fitness routine with cross-fit and other activities.

I serve on the Polytech Craft Advisory committee, the welcoming committee of the Northridge neighborhood, and the Polytech High School Advisory Committee. My family also sponsors numerous local sports teams.”
