About Our Doctor


Dr. Steven Amato

StevenDr. Steven Amato was born and raised in Manitowoc, and decided not only to follow in his father's footsteps, but to take his career one step further. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse and completing a one-year internship in nuclear medical technology at the Mayo Clinic, he received his dental degree from Marquette University Dental School in 1994. In 1996, while still attending Marquette University, he then completed his two-year orthodontics specialty training, earning his master's degree.

Dr. Amato began his orthodontic career by joining Dr. Russell Schwindt's practice in Manitowoc in 1996, and upon Dr. Schwindt's retirement in 1998, Dr. Amato made the practice his very own.

Dr. Amato is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, Wisconsin Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Association and the Manitowoc County Dental Society.

When not at the office, Dr. Amato enjoys spending time with his wife, Jayne, and their daughters, Ashley and Natalie, and can usually be found outdoors golfing, snowmobiling and traveling.
