Stephen Haverkos, DMD, MSD

HaverkosFamilySteve grew up next door to Dr. Reddy and his family.  He attended Our Lady of Visitation followed by Elder High School. While in high school Steve was a patient of Dr. Reddy so he knows the value of his outstanding care.

After graduating from high school, Steve accepted an academic scholarship to attend the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering. He was an engineering co-op at Johnson and Johnson in Blue Ash and graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. Immediately following, Steve accepted a position at Procter and Gamble in Cape Girardeau, MO as a power and controls engineer and project manager. He managed large construction teams for industrial manufacturing installations. He was promoted and relocated back to Cincinnati where he continued to manage construction projects across the country. He was grateful for his experience at P&G, however after four years he decided to pursue a career that he believed would be more fulfilling. He attended dental school at University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, located in Lexington, KY. He earned his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) in 2017. He completed a Postgraduate Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopedics Residency Program from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.

While in residency, Steve served as an orthodontic resident at Children’s Hospital of Richmond in the Craniofacial Center program working with kids with craniofacial developments.  Steve passed his American Boards of Orthodontics exam in residency.  This is the first step to becoming board certified.

Beyond traditional orthodontics, Steve is experienced with Invisalign, complex interdisciplinary cases, soft tissue lasers, temporary skeletal anchorage devices, orthognathic surgical setups, tooth movement acceleration utilizing micro-osteoperforation, and 3-D printing technologies. Steve leveraged his engineering background to design a new orthodontic bracket with reduced friction to enable less painful and more efficient orthodontic care for his master’s thesis.

Steve has been married to his wife, Stephanie, for 7 years. They live on the west side with their two young daughters, Reese and Lydia, and their three rescue dogs. Steve enjoys spending time with family trying out new restaurants, breweries, and the outdoors. He also enjoys brewing beer, playing golf, dog rescue, and riding bikes.

It is a dream come true for Steve to be working with his former next door neighbor and family friend Dr. Reddy.  He looks forward to meeting and working with all of the patients on the west side.
