Meet the Doctor
Dr. Stephanie Settimi was born and raised in Visalia, California. She completed her undergraduate studies at UC San Diego and then worked abroad for one year in Switzerland. She graduated from University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco in 2005, then returned to her hometown to work alongside her father and sister in the family dental practice, Settimi Family Dentistry. During her 10 years in Visalia, she volunteered her dental services at the Samaritan Center, screened elementary school children for dental disease, volunteered for Global Dental Relief in India, and served as a Board Member and eventually President of the Tulare Kings Dental Society.
In 2014 she returned to the Bay Area, and became a part time Assistant Professor at the University of Pacific Dental School, while also working part time in private practice. She is excited to call Santa Rosa her new home and to build personal relationships with all of her patients. She believes that an office where patients are treated like friends and family will allow her to offer the best treatment for whatever their personal needs are. She looks forward to meeting each and every new patient in the practice and strives to put her patients and ease, knowing they will be cared for to the best of her ability.
In her free time Dr Settimi enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, rafting, whitewater kayaking, cycling, trail running and international travel. She has backpacked through many countries and enjoys any opportunity to learn about local traditions and customs and prefers to travel off the beaten path to interact with the locals and experience their culture firsthand. She looks forward to meeting you, and she has many stories to share!
