Owner & Dental Physician at Mountain Sky Dental

Dr. Steve Schluentz, D.D.S.


Dr. Schluentz graduated from Albion College, a small liberal arts college in central Michigan. Upon graduation, he moved to Chapel Hill and obtained his D.D.S degree at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, his love of knowledge and commitment to his patients sent him on a journey of continual learning that includes completion of the Management Program at The Schuster Center in Scottsdale, AZ. This program focuses on creating a true private care office which puts the patient first.

In addition to The Schuster Center, he has spent time completing numerous clinical seminar workshops at the Spear Institute. While attending a workshop on dental occlusion (how the teeth come together),he knew that this area of dentistry is where his passion is lays. This passion lead him to a 2 year residency at the renowned Texas Center for Occlusal Studies, a program known for its emphasis on treating the entire oral system. This form of dentistry is known as Systems-Based Dentistry and fewer than 500 dentists world-wide are certified to offer this type of dentistry to their patients.

He describes himself as a physician of the mouth, head and neck with a focus on creating a partnership with his patients that looks to end the disease cycle which plagues many patients.

Dr. Schluentz is a member of the following groups:

  • American Dental Association
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • North Carolina Dental Society
  • Schuster Center Performance Coach
  • Mentor at the Schuster Center

On a personal note, he has been married to his beautiful wife, MaryAnn since 2009. When they are not pampering their cat, Samson, you can probably find them enjoying the amazing food Western North Carolina has to offer or reading books at a local coffee shop!
