Meet Our Caring Team

Dr Paul Stephens

Dr Paul Stephens, of 7to7dentist, was not always a dentist! Well before starting his dental practice in Wyoming, just north of Gosford, he had a dental experience of his own when he was only a boy. After a teenage bike accident fractured Paul’s two front teeth, he needed some major dental work (two root canals and two crowns), This gave him a valuable insight, a first hand view of modern dentistry from a patients perspective. This experience, and the gentle, kind care he received pushed him towards a fulfilling career in dentistry.

Dr Paul Stephens initially worked for a number of years in Tasmania, the beautiful apple isle. Realizing that Tasmania, though beautiful, was far too cold, he flew north for the winter, where his new life was to start, on the Central Coast, with gorgeous sun and soft white sand.

Dr Paul Stephens has been looking after patients throughout the Gosford and Central Coast region for almost 15 years. He has worked in a variety of locations in the coast, privately, and also in public hospitals and juvenile detention halls. For the last 11 years, has been working as a full time dentist in the same dental practice in the Gosford area prior to having 7 to 7 Dentist.

Dr Paul Stephens has his own dental practice right here on the Central Coast 7to7dental “A Family Practice”.

The best compliment he often receives is when patients refer their family and friends to see him. Often, mum is in disbelief when her kids actually ENJOY their dental visit!

Dr Stephens loves to give back and has been giving all his patients on the central coast the option of payment plans over the years to enable everyone to be able to afford dentistry.

Fun Facts: Dr Stephens enjoys assisting the community with fun runs and fun walks throughout the year. Dr Stephens does dental missions trips overseas to assist wherever possible.
