Dr. Stefanie Dougherty

Dr. Stefanie Dougherty grew up in Dieterich, Illinois and graduated from Dieterich High School in 1997. Her passion for orthodontics began in second grade, after she had her first visit with an orthodontist. 

After high school, Dr. Dougherty was accepted into the combined baccalaureate in Biology/Doctorate in Dentistry Program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The rigorous program allowed Dr. Dougherty to complete her pre-professional curriculum at SIUE in three years and obtain her Bachelor of Science, cum laude, by SIUE following the first year of her professional dental curriculum at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in Alton, IL. She completed her training and received her DMD, cum laude, in 2004. 

Dr. Dougherty practiced general dentistry for three years before deciding to follow her passion for orthodontics. She attended Indiana University School of Dentistry and completed her orthodontic residency in 2009, receiving her Master of Science in Dentistry and her certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. 

The field of orthodontics has given Dr. Dougherty the great opportunity to create amazing, healthy smiles for patients, as well as make a difference in their lives. 

“I am so blessed to be able to create smiles as a profession! I love working with others to enhance a patient’s self esteem, all while building lasting relationships.

I aspire to live, both personally and professionally, by treating others as I would like to be treated. My practice and philosophy of care are centered around this principle.”
– Dr. Dougherty
