Dr. Russell and his wife Katie live in Olympia with their young children, Peyton and Allison. They feel blessed to be surrounded by both sets of grandparents and friends from all stages of their lives.
Dr. Russell’s family enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, stand up paddle-boarding and any other form of outdoor adventure. When home, they love playing in their backyard, reading, and watching movies together.
Helping others has always been important to Dr. Russell. Dentistry and Dental Sleep Medicine allow him improve patients’ health, confidence, and self- image in a friendly, safe, professional environment.
He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Puget Sound, and a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. UW is one of the best dental schools in the world, and he feels fortunate to have trained there. Go Huskies!! Dr. Russell was blessed to gain clinical and practical knowledge by working with his father. Dr. Russell, Senior, left a lasting legacy of excellence in dentistry and was greatly loved by patients and staff. He is greatly missed.
After spending 4 years of dental school with Steve and many other discussions over the phone, I can confidently say that Steve has a real passion for providing the best possible care for his patients. He researches current methods and technologies to help create a top quality dental practice. Besides being a great technical dentist, Steve has great character. He is a devoted family man and a person I am proud to have as a friend. I would recommend him (and have!) to any person moving to the Olympia/Tumwater area.
