Dentist Stephen Williams in Bicknell Indiana Read Transcript

Some people are lucky to discover their calling and spend a lifetime pursuing it. Dr. Stephen Williams is one of those people. A 1979 graduate of the Indiana University School of Dentistry, he opened his Bicknell office later that year. Over the next 22 years, he expanded his practice and his dental artistry, taking hundreds of hours of classes in advanced dental techniques. To fulfill his desire to provide complete dental services for his patients, Dr. Williams trained and became proficient in many areas of dentistry, including:

  • Orthodontics
  • Implant Dentistry
  • Advanced Oral Surgery Techniques
  • Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal
  • TMJ Therapy
  • CEREC Tooth Replacement Technology

After dedicating 22 years of his life to providing quality dental care to his community, and raising four children, Dr. Williams was dealt a difficult blow: he was diagnosed with cancer. Uncertain about what the future held, he decided to retire. When he was blessed with a full recovery from his cancer, he took on the position of assistant basketball coach at North Knox High School, where his daughter played.

Although life was wonderful and he was surrounded with family and friends, he had a lot of spare time on his hands, leaving him wondering if there was something more he should be doing with his life. One afternoon Dr. Williams had been praying and asked, “Lord, what do you want me to do for the rest of my life?”

It was then that his phone rang. It was a former patient asking for some dental advice. After the phone call, Dr. Williams went back to his thoughts about what he should be doing with his life. Then the phone rang again. It was another dental patient with a question. After hanging up from the second call, he sat down, trying to concentrate on his future.

Ten minutes later, his phone rang again. “If this is another dental patient …” he said out loud. To his astonishment, it was.

This time when he got off the phone, he understood the message, and his purpose was clear. He was going to reopen his dental practice. But before he did, he wanted to make sure he could bring something really special to the people of Knox County, IN.

For the next two years, he traveled all over the country to study the latest dental techniques and procedures from the world’s top dental instructors. This included receiving advanced training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He also purchased the best and latest equipment and built a state-of-the-art dental center.

Dr. Williams opened the doors of this facility in September 2008, bringing the finest dental care to the people of Knox County. He stayed open until 2016 when he decided to, again, retire.

In December 2018, Dr. Williams opened the doors once again. Although he keeps a full schedule at his busy practice, Dr. Williams still makes time to coach basketball, rescue animals, be active in ministry, and play golf.
