Dr. Steve Clifford decided to specialize in orthodontics because he enjoys working with children and teenagers, and likes the challenge of improving someone's smile. He gets satisfaction from seeing the changes orthodontic treatment can make in a patient's life — not just in appearance, but also in their confidence and self-image.

Dr. Clifford graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and completed a General Practice Residency at Hennepin County Medical Center. Dr. Clifford then went on to the University of Rochester Eastman Dental Center and received his specialty certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.

In his free time, Dr. Clifford enjoys going for bike rides and relaxing with his family.
