About Dr. Stephen Tomaszewski, DDS
Dr. Stephen Tomaszewski is a Slidell native and graduate of Northshore High School. He attended LSU, where he studied in a pre-dentistry/microbiology curriculum and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. He then was accepted into the LSU School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery which would allow him to practice as a dentist. He has completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency and served around the globe as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy. Dr. Steve quickly gained experience from working closely with mentor dentists and specialists while in the military and also later as he transitioned into private practice specializing in family dentistry. These formative years helped Dr. Steve establish his unique skill set and, under the guidance of his father, Dr. James Tomaszewski, developed his expertise in cosmetic and complex restorative care. Recognizing Dr. Steve’s experience and passion for dentistry, he was also invited to return and teach as a part-time faculty member at the LSU School of Dentistry.
Dr. Steve received his DDS from the LSU School of Dentistry in 2004 and then started his career as a dentist with an advanced education in general dentistry residency in Okinawa, Japan as an officer in the U.S. Navy. From 2005-2006, he was deployed in support of a joint task force mission in Pakistan, and later served as clinic director at Whiting Field Naval Air Station in Milton, Florida. In 2007, Dr. Steve was honorably discharged from the Navy and returned to Louisiana to practice with his father, Dr. James Tomaszewski. He worked for a number of years under Dr. T’s mentorship, gaining experience in cosmetic and restorative care. Upon Dr. T’s retirement from private practice in 2010, Dr. Steve assumed sole operation of Camellia City Family Dentistry. In 2014, he joined the faculty of the LSU School of Dentistry as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry and Biomaterials.
