About Your Dentist

Steven Swords, DMD

Growing up, I was fortunate to have had a great dentist who made sure I never experienced any anxiety during treatment. When I started my own practice, I knew I wanted to give my patients the same relaxing environment. Many people have had negative dental experiences, so my staff and I strive to create a comfortable, positive atmosphere for each and every patient.


After graduating from high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force, where I had the opportunity to learn about dentistry as a dental assistant. During my time in the Air Force, I took two years of night classes that allowed me to complete my undergraduate education after two more years at the University of Georgia. I then achieved my Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree at the Medical College of Georgia.

Continuing Education

I am a regular participant in the Rivertown/Seattle Study Club, meeting monthly with other local dental professionals to discuss the latest advances in dental care. I also ensure my staff and I are up-to-date on new technology, as well as fully certified in Invisalign®.

Professional Associations

  • American Dental Association
  • Georgia Dental Association

My Team

My staff is wonderful with transforming potentially stressful situations into the best dental experiences possible. From the moment our patients make their first phone calls to the moment they walk out of our doors, everyone here strives for excellence each and every step of the way. We ensure quality care by continuing to improve our clinical excellence through advanced education courses, as well as strengthening our relationships and teamwork through staff retreats.

Outside the Office

Having grown up in Blakely, Georgia, I now make my home in Midland, just north of Columbus. My wife, Lacy, and I have two kids, Halee and Brock. We are a tennis-playing family, and I personally enjoy spending time on the golf course. We love to travel as a family, and we are very active at Cascade Hills Church.
