Cosmetic Dentistry Mesa
Dr. Stephen A. Kovar, DMD, FAGD moved to the Phoenix Metropolitan area from Portland, Oregon and joined the My Dentist team in September 2008 bringing with him 14 years of clinical experience at that point.
Dr. Kovar attended Montana State University at Bozeman, Montana studying Biomedical Sciences. He then pursued his dental education at Oregon Health Sciences University, School of Dentistry where he graduated with Honors in 1995. Following dental school, Dr. Kovar completed a General Practice / Hospital Residency at the West Los Angeles / UCLA Veterans Administration Medical Center. Upon completing his residency, Dr. Kovar moved back to Portland, Oregon where, for 10 years, he established his dental practice and also was an Assistant Professor of Restorative Dentistry at Oregon Health and Sciences University, School of Dentistry. It was in his educational role where he became acquainted with Dr. Margolis. Dr. Kovar was one of his son Jason’s professors, the faculty advisor for Jason’s dental fraternity (Delta Sigma Delta), and Jason’s assigned mentor with the Oregon Dental Association. Jason (now another Dr. Margolis) still says that Dr. Kovar was one of his toughest professors.
In July, 2004, Dr. Kovar achieved the honor of receiving a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry – an honor that less than 5% of all dentist’s in North America has achieved.
Dr. Kovar moved to the Valley of the Sun in July 2006 to escape the continuous rain and grey skies of the Pacific Northwest and truly enjoys everything Arizona has to offer. When not at the office, you will find him finding a great hiking or mountain bike trail to explore, going to the gym, practicing yoga, or perhaps taking his Jeep (OPENBIG) out to explore.
