Dr. Steven Curry graduated magna cum laude from West Virginia University, with a B.A. in Chemistry, and was honored with membership in Phi Beta Kappa as an undergraduate, for superior academic achievement. Graduating early from dental school, he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from WVU in Morgantown.
Dr. Curry practices broad-scope, general dentistry, supplying his patients with a comprehensive range of dental services. He centers his practice on each patient, with a special emphasis on managing the fear and anxiety that many people feel about visiting the dentist. Even patients who are not afraid benefit from Dr. Curry’s low-key chair side manner.
Patient comfort has always been a high priority—since 1984, Dr. Curry has provided nitrous oxide and intravenous (I.V.) sedation services to help anxious patients stay calm and relaxed during treatment. Combining a gentle, reassuring approach along with the selective use of sedation techniques, Dr. Curry is able to successfully treat many people who are fearful of dentists and dental visits. It has been his privilege to assist thousands of people who would not have been able to receive necessary dental care by any other means:
“Taking care of people who are afraid is not for most dentists, but it’s certainly satisfying. Our approach really makes a difference in a lot of lives—and it makes dentistry possible for the many people out there who truly have difficulty coping in the dental environment. It helps them to know they’re not the only ones; and that there’s something that can be done to help them.”
Dr. Curry has had the privilege of serving on the West Virginia Board of Dental Examiners’ Anesthesia Subcommittee, where he assisted with anesthesia licensing evaluations for Oral Surgeons and General Dentists throughout West Virginia.
