Meet Dr. Stephen E. Aszkler, DDS
Being an orthodontist is a truly wonderful profession. I have the ability to dramatically change my patients' appearance, improving both their function and self-esteem in the process. I appreciate the trust my patients have put in me and my practice and I'm honored when former patients return to have their own children treated.
Education and Experience
I grew up in Lackawanna, New York, and graduated from St. Francis High School in 1960. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History, graduating magna cum laude, in 1964, and my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1969 from SUNY Buffalo. I served in the US Navy from June, 1969 to June, 1971. I began my specialty training at SUNY Buffalo after leaving the Navy and earned my Certificate of Proficiency in Orthodontics in March, 1973.
Since 1973, I have practiced orthodontics full time with offices in Orchard Park, Derby, and Hamburg. I have been a clinical assistant professor in the SUNY Buffalo Orthodontic Department since 2008 and now work one day a week at the department since my son joined the practice.
I regularly attend national, state and local dental meetings in order to apply results of evidence-based dentistry to treatment plans. I strive to use the most up-to-date materials and methods to achieve fantastic results!
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Mary Joyce, and our three sons, Craig, Jonathan, and Robert, as well as our four beautiful grandchildren, Elliott, Jonathan, Abby and Miles. I enjoy being outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and skiing.
