Dr. James R. Stephens

A third generation Seattleite, Dr. Stephens earned his DDS degree at UC San Francisco, a general practice hospital residency in New York, and a two year Endodontic residency at Boston University earning his masters degree in dentistry. Endodontics (root canals) and eliminating pain has been Dr. Stephens’ passion for the last 30 years at his practice in Tukwila.





Hi there, my name is Cheryl. I am Dr. Stephens’ office manager and usually the first person you greet or talk with on the phone. I was hired on one month after Dr. Stephens’ acquired his endodontic practice here in Tukwila, 30 years ago. I was his lead assistant for many years and moved up to the front office after starting my family. The current staff has worked together for over 17 years and is very knowlegeable. Dr. Stephens is a perfectionist and it shows in the final outcome of each case. He is very kind, caring, compassionate and a joy to work for. We pride ourselves on making each patient feel comfortable and at ease.

Outside of the practice, I enjoy camping, reading, volunteering in the community and watching my children play softball and baseball.
