Dr. Steddum was born and raised right here in Raleigh, NC, and is proud to call this city home. He spent time in every corner of the state. He attended UNC-Chapel Hill as an undergraduate, earned a master’s degree in chemistry at Western Carolina University, and completed his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the ECU School of Dental Medicine.
Following dental school, Dr. Steddum completed a one-year advanced education residency program at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Fayetteville, North Carolina where he received formal training in oral surgery, implant placement, dental prosthetics, and the management of medically compromised patients.
With his advanced training, Dr. Steddum is proud to provide dental care in a safe, comfortable environment with I.V. sedation.
Dr. Steddum loves the craftsmanship and detail that goes into quality dental care and enjoys, even more, the personal relationships that develop with clients. Outside of the office, you can find him riding his mountain bike through the untamed mountains of North Carolina, catching waves on a longboard at the coast, and everywhere in between where there is nature to enjoy.
Dr. Steddum shares his journey with his wife, Lauren, whom he met and married in dental school. She, too, is a Raleigh native, a lover of the outdoors, and a practicing dentist in the Triangle area. He looks forward to meeting and working with you.
