Dr. Steven Sober
Dr. Sober has been practicing for the last 31 years in the same location in Winter Garden. His goal is to provide quality dental care for better oral health to all his patients, regardless of whether he's doing a complex crown and bridge procedure or a simple cleaning. He and his staff strive to provide patients with a relaxed, unhurried, and friendly office enviornment. He is currently welcoming new patients.
Dr. Sober is a member of the American Dental Association and the Florida Dental Association.
He was born in New Jersey, and he and his family moved to Northwest Florida at the age of 10. He graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School and Pensacola Jr. College. After that he moved to Gainesville, Florida where he graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in chemistry. It was then on to dental school at the University of Florida College of Dentistry where he graduated in 1984.
Dr. Sober has been married to his wife, Marcia, for 38 years. They have two grown married daughters, two grandsons, and one granddaughter. Dr. Sober is active in his church congregation, and enjoys photography as a hobby.
Receptionist / Insurance
Dorilyn joined our practice in 2005. Dorilyn is the voice you normally hear when you call the office to schedule appointments or ask questions concerning the practice. She is responsible for making and adjusting appointments, inputting all patient data into our dental management computer program, calling to remind patients of their appointments, processing and following up with all insurance claims, processing all payments from patients and insurance companies, and numerous other miscellaneous tasks which are essential to running a dental practice.
Dorilyn is a native of Winter Garden, and as such, she is very familiar with the history of the area as well as many of the local area businesses, residents, and their families. She has worked in the insurance business, title business, real estate business, and trucking industry. She is married and has two grown children and a stepdaughter. Her five grandchildren are the light of her life, and she delights in being their "Grammy".
Dorilyn is ready and willing to take your call, and will do her best to accommodate your scheduling needs. Please give her a call.
Marcia has been a part of our practice off and on since it’s inception 31 years ago. She has been married to Dr. Sober for 38 years, and has worked to help build and sustain the practice throughout the years.
Marcia’s history in the dental office goes a long way back. She began her experience working for her dentist father while still in junior high school. She worked as his chair-side assistant until high school graduation, and then went on to Pensacola Jr. College to obtain a degree in dental hygiene. She worked as a hygienist in Williston, Florida before deciding to go back to college at the University of Florida, earning a bachelors degree in elementary education in 1984. However, before getting a chance to start her teaching career, she unselfishly began working as a chair-side assistant to Dr. Sober as he began his career in Sanford, Florida. After leaving Sanford in 1985, Dr. Sober began his solo practice in its current location in Winter Garden, and Marcia took on the multitasking role as chair-side assistant, receptionist, bookkeeper, and all around office helper wherever she was needed. Through the years that followed, Marcia has returned to the office from time to time whenever she was needed.
Currently, Marcia works full time as a chair-side assistant, helping Dr. Sober with direct patient care. She maintains the treatment areas, setting up instruments and supplies for each procedure. In addition, she cleans up the units, sterilizes instruments to be ready for the next patient, and handles other miscellaneous tasks as they come along.
Marcia is easy to talk to, and is ready and willing to assist you to make your dental visit a pleasure. Come in and let her help you with your appointment.
