Dr. Steven Dugoni, clinical professor of orthodontics at University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, has been recognized by the South San Francisco Chamber of Commerce for his long-standing contributions to the community over the past 30 years.
Dugoni, a 1981 graduate of Pacific's Graduate Orthodontic Program, has been treating patients in his private practice in South San Francisco for more than three decades. With his office orthodontic team in attendance, he received the Longevity Award at the South San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Installation and Business Awards Dinner on Feb. 10. Congresswoman Jackie Speier presented him with the award.
With the assistance and support of his family, colleagues and office team, Dugoni has provided many Bay Area residents with orthodontic treatment since 1981. In addition to serving the community through his private practice and in his role as professor at the dental school, Dugoni is a director for the American Board of Orthodontics, a national certifying agency for orthodontics. He also has held the position of president of both the San Mateo County Dental Society and the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics.
"It has been very fulfilling to practice orthodontics in South San Francisco for 30 years and to continue the tradition of improving dental health and creating beautiful smiles for the patients in our community," said Dugoni.
The son of Dean Emeritus Arthur A. Dugoni, Steven Dugoni is part of a family with deep involvement in the profession of dentistry and a long-standing presence in the City of South San Francisco. Art Dugoni opened the orthodontic practice that Steven currently owns in 1966. Art has also been recognized by the Chamber of Commerce: he was honored with the Citizen of the Year Award in 1960.
