Dr. Steve Horne began his career at Brigham Young University obtaining his BA in English. He earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2007 from the University of Southern California and then entered active duty with the U.S. Army, practicing dentistry at Fort Knox, Kentucky, for the next four years. During this time, in 2010, he was deployed as part of a medical unit to Baghdad, Iraq, to provide dental and triage support to military and civilian workers who were involved in the effort there.
After leaving the Army in 2011, Dr. Horne joined a private practice in La Jolla, CA and became credentialed with Scripps Hospital La Jolla, CA as a dental consultant.
He is a member of the San Diego County Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), and SPEAR study group. He is a preferred provider with Invisalign, and spends countless hours each year pursuing continuing education in order to maintain a standard of excellence in dentistry.
Dr. Horne has been married to his sweetheart, Christy since 2002. They have twins, Camille and Trent, who were born in 2014, and welcomed their third child, Colette Elise, in 2017!
Dr. Horne is overjoyed to be joining this Encinitas dental family established and nurtured by Dr. Benedict and Dr. Madurowicz. His mission is to continue their legacy by listening to and understanding patients’ concerns, earning their trust by practicing with uncompromised integrity, and performing dentistry with the utmost skill.
