Welcome to the Office of Dr. Stephen J. Pyle, DDS
My goal, and the goal of the staff that I have carefully selected and trained to assist me, is to provide you with a warm and comfortable dental experience, while providing the highest level of professional care to you and your family.
I earned my DDS degree from Creighton University in 1983 and immediately relocated to the community of Bonaventure in western Broward County. As soon as professional office space became available in the new Weston development, I opened my first private dental practice at Country Isles Plaza in 1986. When I was able to bring in an associate dentist, I then had the opportunity to apply what I had learned to design and open my second office in the Lakes Plaza Shopping Center in 1996. Due to our growth, and the desire to be more conventionally located to our patients from Weston, Davie, Sunrise, Plantation, and beyond, we relocated our office to the Commerce Parkway Professional Center in 2013. At our current location we also offer Sleep Apnea Treatment . In 2018 I earned the status of a Diplomat of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM). I treat patients suffering from snoring and obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy which is covered by most insurance plans. As an ABDSM member I have access to latest educational resources on the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
As a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM), I am part of an elite group of dentists who have met the highest educational and experiential standards. I have an in-depth level of knowledge in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy.
I have been married to my wife, Ruth, since 1978. Ruth manages the corporate financial aspects of the practice and was instrumental in the design and built-out of our current office. She also has a hobby of raising the beautiful orchids that you will find in the office. We are both active in several ministries at St. Bonaventure Church, as we share the philosophy that we should give back to the community through service.
Ryan Pyle arrived in 1991. He graduated from Rice University (engineering department) with a degree in CAMM (computational and applied mathematics) and is currently working on his PHD in applied mathematics at Notre Dame. He enjoys swimming, hiking, playing the trumpet and all sorts of math and science related activities. We are proud of the fact that he has achieved the Eagle rank in the Boy Scouts, and graduated from Pine Crest School as Salutatorian. Our family is completed Millie, a toy schnauzer.
One of life’s most difficult challenges is to create a balance between work, family and leisure, while having time for self, and community or church service. I feel blessed that I have been able to achieve this because of the help of the warm and wonderful team that works with me. I feel that it is their passion, warmth and dedication to patients that makes our practice unique.
