Dr. Steven Widman graduated second in his class from his Dental School in San Francisco and went on to matriculate at University of Washington to further his Endodontic training. He has received several awards during his academic career and is also a member of the Omicron Upsilon Honorary Dental Society which selects students in the top 5% of their graduating class.
Outside of the office, Dr. Widman enjoys spending time on the water, not only fishing, crabbing, and prawning, but also just hanging out by the shore and reading a great book. He loves to tinker with projects at home, and especially enjoys barbecuing and smoking his freshly caught salmon, to the gustatory delight of his friends and family. Growing up in Minnesota afforded him the opportunity to participate in ice and snow sports and he continues to enjoy skiing to this day. He feels fortunate to live and work surrounded by the natural beauty of Bellingham and surrounding areas.
“I was very impressed how soon the office scheduled me for an appointment. They took my pain seriously and I did not have to wait. The procedure itself was not painful and after the numbness wore off, I did not have to take anything for the pain. Dr. Widman was very efficient and quick with his work. Thank you!”
