Mallory A. Stechishin, DDS

Dr. Stechishin provides high-quality, personalized care to each and every patient who comes to our office! She always makes sure patients feel relaxed and comfortable, and that they are properly informed and educated about their treatment options.

Born in Michigan, Dr. Stechishin was raised and finished high school in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. She then completed her Bachelor of Science Undergraduate education at the University of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan, Canada, and went on to attend Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta, Georgia. She then practiced for one year before moving to California in 1987. Dr. Stechishin was an associate for 2 years in San Jose before opening the first practice of her own. She faithfully served the Silicon Valley community from 1990-2013 and specialized in providing Cosmetic, General, and Family Dentistry. Then, in 2013, she opened an office in Carmel, CA, which she still runs to this day! In 2008 she started another private practice in Indian Wells, CA, with an emphasis placed on Geriatric Dentistry, Cosmetic Veneers, and Teeth Whitening. In mid-2019, she sold her Indian Wells location and began practicing in our wonderful Ft. Bragg community!

Dr. Stechishin has lived in Los Gatos, California since 1987 with her husband Stefan Kowalow, and having no children has allowed them to travel to various regions of the great state of California, enriching their lives and clinical experience.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Stechishin loves horses and horse racing (she owns thoroughbreds and is a California-licenced thoroughbred owner). In her free time, she also enjoys swimming, scuba diving, tennis, golf, art, music, and especially international travel!
