Dr Stevens has embraced living in St George by mountain biking ALL YEAR LONG! He has run just about every race you can run in southern Utah including the St George Marathon the St George Iron Man, but his favorite is the True Grit Mountain Bike Race every spring.
Dr Stevens’ staff say that he is a true dental nerd. He loves new dental technology, he travels all over the country to gain new dental education and is currently working on a new accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. All of this learning and constant growth means he will take care of his patients with amazing skills and care.
Dr. Stevens is married to Katie Stevens and has five awesome children that are growing up too fast.
Wade F. Stevens, DDS
Wade F Stevens got tired of being “the other Dr. Stevens” so he has been going by Dr. Wade since shortly after joining the Riverside Dental team to practice with his brother. He even grew a beard so people could tell them apart.
He grew up in Holden, Utah. He graduated from Dixie College way before it was a University, then attended Virginia Commonwealth University for dental school. After dental school, he did a one-year residency at the Veterans Hospital in Salt Lake City. During his residency, he attended a continuing education course with Dr. Ott and has been hooked ever since. So, if he is not at the office he is probably in Scottsdale learning more about dentistry.
He and his wife, Sarah do not have a lot of time for hobbies as they are constantly running around 5 kids from 4-13 years old. When he does want to relax he enjoys woodworking, CrossFit, (though he won’t talk to you about it unless you bring it up), and escaping back to Holden to pretend he is a farmer.
If you have met Dr. Wade you know he absolutely loves being a dentist but will tell you that what makes his office awesome is the most amazing staff in the country.

Dr. Snyder is a passionate cyclist and has even won a few mountain bike and cyclocross races. His favorite race is the Crusher in the Tushar in beautiful Fishlake National Forest. He loves to be able to race his bike in the same mountain range where he spent time as a youth riding horses with his grandfather.
Dr. Snyder loves teeth! He travels across the country to learn from the leaders in dental education. When he is home, he loves to read dental text books and other health related books to better understand how he can help his patients live healthier lives.
