Meet Dr. Maria B. Steed
Dentistry allows me to serve and care for the well-being of others in a way that I know really makes a difference. I am not only able to contribute to making brighter smiles but improving the quality of lives, as better oral health leads to greater overall bodily health for my patients.
My patients and their families make each day interesting. There are stories and anecdotes, and laughs. Real friendships form between my patients and myself, and there is always something to learn from each of them.
For me, it is great being part of a team and working together with others on a common mission. The patients here come first. The office is warm and inviting, but also fun. You can tell that people are happy to see us and their genuine smiles mean the world to us.
This really is the greatest profession in which to be involved and the best people with whom to work. We do hope you will choose us to care for your and your family’s smile needs.
My educational background includes:
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics and Molecular Biology, and Psychology, 2004
- Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry, Doctorate of Medical Dentistry summa cum laude, 2010
Dentistry is constantly changing and new products are always being introduced, so it is important to stay up-to-date on the latest information and technology. The continuing education courses that I participate in help me to provide our patients with excellent dental care and stimulate my professional development.
Being an active member of professional associations gives me countless opportunities to stay informed with regard to new treatment practices and recent scientific advances in dentistry. Through my memberships, I am able to access and share information with others at meetings, lectures, and seminars, all of which allows me to better serve and care for our patients.
My professional, active memberships include:
- American Dental Association
- Maine Dental Association
- York County Dental Society
- Greater Portland Dental Society
- Young Dentist Study Club
- Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society
Family and Away from Work
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending my free time with my family. My husband Eric and I have a son, Mitchell and two daughters, Ella and Klara. We can often be found outside enjoying all the wonderful attractions Maine has to offer.
