Dr. Steven Rassi grew up in Fort Myers, Florida and was first drawn to dentistry when he was a child. His mother was a dental assistant, so he spent much of his childhood in dental offices. He was fascinated by science and knew he had a future in the healthcare industry. As a doctor, he enjoys dentistry because of how effortlessly it intertwines “science and artistry to make major impacts on his patient’s lives.”
As a graduate of SUNY University at the Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Rassi joined the U.S. Navy under the Health Professions Scholarship Program. He served for 5 years on active duty and completed a residency at the Branch Dental Clinic in Norfolk, VA. He was also a part of Humanitarian Deployment with Continuing Promise from February-April 2018 in Honduras and Guatemala. Dr. Rassi is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the ADA, and the VDA. He is CEREC certified, and has volunteered at Park Place Dental Clinic in Norfolk. Dr. Rassi is currently a Navy Reserve Officer.
Dr. Rassi is easy-going and in his spare time, you can find him running, going to the movies or live theatre and learning more about naval history. His husband, Gary, is a Radiology Technologist and they have a corgi named Rocco.
