About Your Dentist
Growing up, Dr. Michelle says her parents complained about having to go to the dentist.
“My parents grew up with World War II era dentistry” Dr. Michelle reports. “When they would talk to me about dentistry, I would just think, there has to be something better; I can do better.”
Through all of her schooling, Dr. Michelle loved studying science and was fascinated by health. Making the decision to become a dentist seemed natural. “Dentistry really fulfills me because it is an artistic science, where I improve the health of our patients every day,” she says. “Blending the artistry of tooth restoration with the science and technology of today delivers incredible results.”
Dr. Michelle Steinhubel graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry with her Doctorate of Dental Science in 1998 and completed her residency at University of Nebraska Medical Center in 1999.
While in residency Dr. Michelle worked with patients who had been hospitalized, often with extreme dental problems and fear.
“My favorite part of my residency was soothing the worries of my patients and showing them that dentistry didn’t have to hurt,” she says.
Prior to opening All Smiles, Dr. Michelle practiced general dentistry for the US Air Force in Okinawa, Japan for three years and then in Arizona for a year.
Dr. Michelle has trained with Appliance Therapy Group, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. She is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, and the Washington Dental Association.
