The team at Stephens Dentistry, 1560 Sherman Ave. #807, will host an open house Oct. 8 for clients, referral partners, and staff to celebrate 50 years of dental service with those who have helped makthe practice a success.

Dr. James Bruce Stephens founded Stephens Dentistry in September, 1959. “I had a mere $10,000 and a young family to support,” said Dr. Stephens. The office has grown in location, size and technology over the years, the team says, and is now a completely digital, paperless office as well.

Practice manager Coleen-Shannon Licar said, “We have a remarkable, talented and dedicated group. We all enjoy what we do, each other and our clients.”
