Dr. Brown, a Board-Certified Periodontist in Philadelphia, not only has the highest level of academic qualifications, but also enjoys the recognition of his peers as an outstanding clinician.

Dr. Brown specializes in providing periodontal services and dental implants. He started The Perio Group to connect with general dentists throughout the Delaware Valley to provide patients the most advanced periodontal treatments available.

Widely known as an innovator and leader in modern dentistry, Dr. Brown is a pioneer in the use of the laser as an alternative to surgery in treating periodontal disease. He was the first dentist in Philadelphia to offer LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), an FDA approved, minimally invasive treatment, specifically developed to treat periodontal disease.

He was the first periodontist in Philadelphia to offer the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a treatment for receding gums that requires no cutting or stitching.

“Dr. Brown is a pioneer in the use of the laser as an alternative to surgery in treating Periodontal Disease.”


A graduate of Temple University School of Dentistry, Dr. Brown earned Certificates of Proficiency in Periodontics and Adult Orthodontics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, making him the first in the country to acquire this rare double specialty. He continues his education by attending courses on new techniques and technology regularly. He recently completed a course on the Pinhole Surgical Technique for receding gums, which he now offers to his patients.

“I was the first person in the entire U.S. to have combined training in periodontics and orthodontics. What it allowed me to do is to get involved in teaching. One of my passions has always been to mentor young people and to teach dentists who are already trained on how to do more advanced procedures.” – Dr. Stephen Brown

    Dentists on the Square is great. I’ve had a lot of work done, and they are by far the best practice I’ve been to. They are preventative in mindset, which makes a huge difference to minimize issues before they are large scale problems. The team collaborates and they are very attentive. And now I walk out after a cleaning with much whiter teeth! My hygienist is amazing!

  • Betty H.

    This was my best experience at a dentist office. The staff was AWESOME!!!!. I had some major dental work done and still the experience was wonderful. Thanks, Bonnie for the warm welcome.

  • Jackie E.

    DOTS is fantastic! I’ve been a long time patient and have referred many friends. Their staff and doctors are attentive, caring and always willing to sit down and plan out treatment and talk through your benefits. Thank you!

  • Heidi S.

    They actually have me excited to get implants. The staff is amazing and extremely kind. Very thorough and comprehensible, even with such a detailed process. Thank you!! I’m very happy to have been recommended to come here.

  • Candace V.

    I highly recommend! The staff is really friendly and nice. I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Roberts and Vince and they are great. I was really nervous to have that type of treatment but they reassured me that I would be okay and made it a good experience. It is so worth it!

  • Angela B.

    My first appointment at DOTS was pretty incredible. I had a traumatic experience at my last dentist three years ago that resulted in my 1) developing severe anxiety around going to the dentist and 2) me putting off my dental health for a while. Everyone at DOTS was incredible and super supportive. Shoutout to the hygienist and dentists there that get their patients through the appointments with humor and professionalism. I think I might actually look forward to the dentist now!

  • Jake P.
