Meet Dr. Saunders

Stephen J. Saunders, DDS, FICOI


Dr. Saunders started Waupaca Dental Excellence in 2004. His vision is to do dentistry how it was meant to be done, high quality. He is skilled in many aspects of dentistry and enjoys the wide variety of procedures he gets to do everyday. Not only is he able to complete the basic dentistry that everyone is aware of, but he also enjoys placing dental implants and doing large life changing dental makeovers. Dr. Saunders is the dentist/owner of the practice and establishes trusting relationships with each of his patients by truly listening to their concerns, then offering solutions to improve their oral health. 


Having lived in Waupaca since 2004, Dr. Saunders enjoys the Waupaca area and all it has to offer. He is an avid runner, has completed several marathons, triathlons and is an Ironman! He basically likes anything to do outside.

Dr. Saunders and his wife have 4 children. He loves spending time with them and is heavily involved in coaching youth soccer and hockey.
