Dr. Steve Napier has two passions, music and dentistry. His music career began with guitar lessons at an early age and led to a high school band. When he realized he wasn’t going to be a rock star, he turned his attention to dentistry and became a co-partner at Grand Dental Group. An avid music buff who continues to play guitar with multiple acts, he continues to satisfy his need to appear before an audience by speaking and performing magic tricks at local pre-schools and by participating in the annual Halloween show the group puts on for thousands of people in the surrounding communities.
A graduate of the University of Illinois, Dr. Napier attends continuing education courses in excess of the annual required amount. He feels one of the best ways he can serve his patients is to stay current with all of the latest technology, techniques, and materials. He maintains active memberships with the American Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Illinois Dental Society, and the CEREC Study Club. Dr. Steve likes being part of a progressive group practice that offers general and specialty care to patients of all ages, in state-of-the-art facilities.
Service is not just a vocation; it’s a way of life. Dr. Napier is active in community, church, school, and sporting events. For seven years, Dr. Steve coached and served on the board for the Leyden Bears football program, and recently he started coaching soccer, lacrosse, girls’ softball, and girls’ basketball. He approaches everything he does with enthusiasm, which exemplifies his personal philosophy: “It can be done!”
