While attending dental school he was awarded the Clinical Dedication award during his second and third year. This is an award given to only 4 students in a class of 100, being recognized as a student that went the extra mile for his patients and spent his extra time outside of school hours, practicing and improving his skills.

Stephen first got his experience at the early age of 14 in the dental industry as a dental assistant for his dad, Dr. Dale Madsen. He learned the ropes for 4 years at the office, earning his X-ray certificate, learning to fabricate gold crowns, bleaching trays and night guards all before high school graduation at Pleasant Valley.

After graduating college from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a Bachelors degree in Business Finance, Stephen explored different career opportunities around the country, and decided on a career in dentistry. Stephen and his family moved back to Chico and worked another 2 years in the dental office while also attending Chico State and Butte College to complete his pre-requisites for applying to dental school.

Dr. Stephen Madsen was raised in Chico and is thrilled to be back home with his wife and four children. He loves exercising, reading, camping and perfecting his culinary hobby on his Traeger grill.
