Dr. Steven Alexander is native of sunny Southern California, where he grew up in a family that was surrounded by many orthodontists as family friends. Steven confirmed in his mind that orthodontics would be his profession at age eleven as he traveled with his father around Europe with a number of famous orthodontists as they lectured and spent the evenings talking about how beautifully aligned teeth can make a true difference in a life. It seemed natural to want to change lives by giving the gift of a beautiful smile, so Steven set his course and went about achieving his goal.
Steven was highly successful, both academically and in sports, during his high school and college years. He attended Biola University, where he was a closing pitcher and part-time shortstop. He then went on to the University of Pacific School of Dentistry, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, graduating with high honors near the top of his class and earning the opportunity to advance his degree by specializing in orthodontics. Steven attended the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, where he completed his residency in orthodontics and earned a Master of Science degree in dentistry.
