This dental approach is good for the overall health and wellness of the patient.

Background

Dr. Stephen Jaeger graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Penn State and received his dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania.  

Dentistry has always been in Dr. Jaeger’s family. Starting with his great uncle, followed by his mother, father, and uncle, he is the third-generation dentist his family. He has always had a strong interest in health and wellness. To him, dentistry is not just about fixing broken teeth or making sure the gums are healthy. He wholeheartedly believes in a holistic approach and understands the intricacies of the mouth and its structures as the gateway to the health of the whole body. Dr. Jaeger wants to ensure his patients are healthy orally as well as systemically. Education about maintaining a healthy mouth, good nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices are a part of Dr. Jaeger’s treatment plan.

Prior to coming to National Integrated Health Associates, Dr. Jaeger worked on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation in northern Montana. He provided comprehensive and emergent dental care to the American Indian population while also promoting his patients’ wellness in areas like diet, tobacco use and exercise. This experience enhanced his biological dental skills and techniques. In addition to dentistry, as an avid outdoorsman and exercise enthusiast, he loved the opportunity to explore Big Sky Country and the Rocky Mountains and experience the spectacular natural wonders of our country.
