Dr. Steven M. Guelff is originally from the small town of Marquette in Michigan’s scenic Upper Peninsula. This “yooper” has lived in Florida since 1979, and worked his way through college with many jobs. He was a janitor for the family-owned laundry business, bellman, union concrete finisher, middle school teacher, worker with the developmentally disabled and test preparation specialist for Stanley H. Kaplan, Inc. These jobs taught him the fundamentals of building and construction, hard work, commitment to excellence, attention to detail, and empathy.
Dr Guelff received both his bachelor’s degree (History of Science, Medicine and Technology) in 1987 and his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1992 from the University of Florida. He graduated in the top 5 of his dental school class, received the Pierre Fouchard Award for Outstanding Student in Periodontology and completed research for the University of Florida Department of Orthodontics.
