Dr. Stephanie Del Carmen
Stephanie Del Carmen, DDS, MS received her dental degree from the University of California, San Francisco. She went on to the University of Detroit where she completed her Post Graduate Orthodontic Residency. Dr. Del Carmen became interested in orthodontics when she became an ortho patient at twelve years old and has never looked back. During her residency in Detroit, she learned about connecting with patients as she studied teeth movement and facial proportions and balance.
Thriving on the diversity of the San Francisco bay area, Dr. Del Carmen returned and has been practicing since 1996. In the last ten years, she has been involved in two non-profits that travel to developing countries providing dental care and palate surgery services to people in need. In her spare time, you can find Dr. Del Carmen on the soccer field, playing the ukulele and spending time with her family and crested gecko named Baby G.. She loves living in the bay area and is proud to have called it home for the past twenty years.
