Dr. Steven Mee is a Tinley Park Dentist at McGonigle Dental dedicated to providing patients with comprehensive and individualized care.
Dr. Mee’s experience treating patients in a wide range of settings has led him to view dentistry as a means to a greater good. With each patient that walks into our office, Dr. Mee prioritizes their personal experience by imagining that he is caring for a close friend or family member. Dr. Mee takes the time to get to know his patients and closely listens to their concerns to ensure that they receive thorough and conscientious care.
In addition to his drive to help others, Dr. Mee’s passion for dentistry stems from a love for working with his hands he developed while growing up in Southern California. His father was a skilled carpenter who taught him the value and sense of accomplishment of producing a desired result through meticulous, thoughtful work. Dr. Mee also enjoyed sculpting and ceramics classes as an undergrad while working toward his degree in biochemistry. When his older brother entered dental school, Dr. Mee found that dentistry offered the perfect blend of community service and skilled workmanship.
Before moving to Illinois, Dr. Mee served in a dental office attached to a hospital as well as a rural community office in Oregon. He provided care for a free mobile clinic and HIV+ positive members of the community and volunteered as a retirement home care provider. In these settings, Dr. Mee observed firsthand the many factors that affect oral health, including systemic wellness and life circumstances. As a result, he approaches patient care from a place of compassion every day. There, he was also recognized as the leading dentist in a program of more than 40 locations.
Dr. Mee is happily married to his high school sweetheart Michelle, and together they have a three-year-old, 140-pound bullmastiff named Phoebe. When out of the office, Dr. Mee is an avid foody and outdoor enthusiast, constantly seeking new restaurants to try, rock walls to climb, and hiking trails to explore. Dr. Mee’s claim to fame is a basketball trick shot video that was featured on ESPN.
Dr. Mee has fully embraced Chicago culture, drawn to its food, unmistakable landmarks, and tight-knit community. He is proud and honored to be a part of the city’s vibrant fabric and looks forward to furthering his reach in the Chicago area.
