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 new location we also offer Sleep Apnea Treatment as part of affiliation with Chase Dental SleepCare which was established in New York by Dr Barry Chase. In 2018 I earned the status of a Board Certified Diplomat of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). I treat patients suffering from snoring and obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy which is covered by most insurance plans. As an AADSM member I have access to latest educational resources on the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Two twin themes have fueled the dental practice’s growth for 28 years—that of respect and commitment to our patients, and my respect and commitment to the wonderful staff that allows me to provide expert dental care to you the patient. My staff and I respect your valuable time and always strive to see you at your appointed time. We are committed to earning and retaining your confidence in our treatment, whether it’s been 25 years since your last dental visit, or if you just need a simple cleaning. To this end, we are continually evaluating and researching the latest technologies and treatments that will make your visit more pleasant and provide you with superior results. Therefore, I take my responsibility to keep up with the latest dental developments and technologies, and to maintain and improve my professional skills, very seriously. As such, I am a member of the following professional associations:
- American Dental Association
- Florida Dental Association
- Atlantic Coast District Dental Society
- Academy of General Dentistry
- Academy of Laser Dentistry
- Pankey Institute Alumni
- American Society of Clinical Hypnosis
- American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
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 and is currently attending Rice University in Houston, Texas where he will be graduating from the engineering department with a degree in CAMM (computational and applied mathematics) this spring. He is currently looking at various doctorate opportunities. He enjoys swimming, hiking, playing in the MOB (marching owl band) 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 by Snowie, a miniature schnauzer and 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.
