Stephen T. DeehanPrincipal Dentist
Dr. Deehan, a graduate in 1993 of UMDNJ, has been in practice for over 20 years. He accomplished a one-year residency at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ then he opened his practice in Hackettstown shortly after that. Over the years he has become certified in various fields to educate himself on the proper care needed to provide overall oral health for each and every patient. He is also a member of the Tri-County Dental Society and participates in a monthly SPEAR educational dental study club with peers to stay current with the technology and treatment in the realm of dentistry today.
Deehan’s goal is to provide the highest quality of dentistry in a caring and nurturing environment. He strives to create an atmosphere where all employees work to create a harmonious and professional relationship between each other as well as with the patients. His ultimate desire is to provide a most enjoyable experience for each patient for the care and treatment they need to maintain excellent overall oral and total body health.
Married for over 20 years and a father of four, he enjoys his weekends spending time with his family. He has been a coach for each of his children, taught catholic education at his local church and has taught dental health in local schools. Although wrestling is by far his favorite sport, he likes keeping up with all high school, college and pro sports. His favorite time is spent hanging with his children either on a field or at his home and it almost always includes hot wings.
