Dr. Steve Chown

steve Steve was born in Northern Ontario and grew up in Thunder Bay and several other small mill towns. He went to the University of Manitoba and completed his dental degree in 1995. After working in Thompson, Manitoba for a few years, he decided to return to Northwestern Ontario and moved to Fort Frances in 1998.

Steve feels that Fort Frances is the ideal place for him to have his dental office. He offers a wide variety of dental treatments which reduces trips out of town for his patients. After taking many hours of continuing education and participating in comprehensive mentorship programs he is able to offer his patients orthodontic (braces), endodontics (root canals), oral surgery (wisdom teeth removal), soft tissue laser treatments as well as more well known treatments such as fillings and crowns.
