About me

To Our Valued Patients,

I am so excited to announce that I will be taking over John McAllister’s dental practice, and I can’t wait to meet you. My name is Dr. Robert Steljes—please call me Dr. Rob. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue caring for the patients of McAllister Family Dentistry.

I was born in Wilmington, NC, and raised in Statesville. I attended West Iredell High School and then moved to Hickory, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Lenoir Rhyne University. I continued my education at A.T. Still University, where I received a Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD).
Over the past couple of years, I have worked in the Troutman area, but I have always wanted to return to Hickory. I am extremely excited to return to the Hickory community once more where I can use my knowledge and experience to provide dental treatment for the people within the Hickory community. When I am not in the dental office, you can find me spending time with my family and enjoying the outdoors.
Over the next few months, McAllister Dentistry will transition to Lake Hickory Dental. Our goal is to make this as seamless as possible. We are still in the same location, and the talented team that you all know and love will also remain.
Insurance in-network participation will continue with Delta Dental Premier, Cigna DPPO, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. I am excited to share that we will be adding advanced technology, including same-day crowns, 3D printing capability, and 3D X-rays, which will allow us to provide you with the most advanced care possible.
See you all soon!

-Dr. Robert Steljes
