Favorite thing about dentistry: We can make an incredibly profound impact on a person’s life by giving them back their confidence to smile, enjoy the foods they like, and live a pain-free and healthy life.

Family: Same as Dr. Barjesh’s :)

Favorite App: The Wall Street Journal – I can read the paper whenever I want on my iPhone! Weather.com is second – my family thinks I was a meterologist in my last life because I am full of all sorts of weather predictions (which are usually pretty accurate).

Education and hobbies: North Olmsted High School, 1980
DePauw University, B.A., 1984
The University of Michigan, D.D.S., 1988

Fave restaurant: Sanctuary in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Great food and service and an even better view from the side of Camelback Mountain

Fave book: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I’m a WWII history buff and this is an almost unbelievable true story from that time.

Fave movie: Toy Story – I’ve seen it probably 100 times with my kids, nieces, and nephews and it still makes me laugh (especially when Dinosaur says “now I have guilt”).

Fave sports team: All the Cleveland teams – I’m a lifelong suffering Cleveland sports team fan who has, lived through it all; The Fumble, The Shot, Red Right 88, “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” etc. And, Univ of Michigan, who has the best fight song and helmets in college sports!

Fave music: Classic rock, light jazz, and anything my kids don’t listen to.

Fave things: Traveling anywhere different from home, riding my road bike in the Metroparks when there’s no cars and it’s really still and quiet, volunteering with my son to feed Cleveland’s homeless with the St. Ignatius Labre group on Sunday evenings and seeing him “get it”. Coming from work, where almost nobody wants to see me (even though most people are good pretenders), to my home where everyone is glad I’m there!

Drs. Steve and Barjesh have published numerous articles on dental health in newspapers and periodicals. The doctors have also given many presentations to dentists, community groups, and health care providers on the advancements in dentistry.
