Dr. Stephen Myers dreamed of becoming a dentist at the age of five. Born and raised in Panama City, he graduated from Bay High School, Gulf Coast Community College and majored in chemistry at the University of Florida.
His love of art combined with the science and technology of dentistry inspired him to pursue his childhood dream. He received his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry.
Married in 1976 to his high school sweetheart, he and Mary Jo returned to Panama City Beach where he began to serve as Panama City Beach’s first dentist.
They have two sons, Stephen, a technical specialist for Foley & Lardner in Boston, Massachusetts and Jordan, a practicing attorney in Atlanta, Georgia.
