Meet Dr. Patruzzi
Welcome to Desert Kids Dentistry
Dr. Steven Petruzzi was born and raised in Palm Springs, CA. He graduated from St. Mary’s College in Moraga, CA and received his dental degree from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. After dental school he attended a General Practice Residency through Brown University at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI. He then completed his Pediatric Dental Training at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO.
Having enough of the cold weather and snow he moved to Phoenix, AZ to get back to the desert and hot weather. After working for a few years Dr. Petruzzi was ready to open his own office. Being a true kid at heart, he knew having fun is top priority. It is his goal to make the dental visit fun and enjoyable. Dr. Petruzzi is married to his wife, Selena, and has three children, Benjamin, Caraline, and Alison. He stays active in the community by coaching youth sports. In his spare time he enjoys working out, obstacle and trial races, anything sports related, and spending time with his family.
He is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and belongs to the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as well as the local chapters of those groups.
