Bob Stewart, DDS

Dr. Bob and his wife, Kim, own the practice. Dr. Bob Stewart graduated from The University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio in 1988.  “Dr. Bob”, as most of his patients call him, is a family man at heart who takes care of his patients and has 3 children of his own.   Dr. Bob’s practice philosophy is simple. He believes in the golden rule: “Treat others as you would have them treat you”.  The dental advice he gives you will be the same advice he would give his own family member. Dr. Bob taught from coast to coast and internationally on innovative root canal techniques and has been practicing for over 30 years. Dr. Bob sees patients at both Pasadena and Willowbrook locations and focuses on root canals, orthodontics (braces and Invisalign), sedation dentistry, dentures, and sleep apnea treatment.  Outside of work, Dr. Bob loves hanging out with his family, playing tennis, and hunting. He also speaks conversational Spanish.
