About Us

Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton, Florida

The Smile Centre’s unique approach to comprehensive dental health care began in 1986, after graduation from the University of Florida, College of Dentistry, when LVI dentist, Dr. Richard A. Stanley’s vision of total quality care became the foundation for his new comprehensive cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry practice.

At the heart of The Smile Centre’s success is Dr. Stanley’s commitment to extensive, top-notch continuing training for each member of The Smile Centre team.  In addition to hundreds of hours of in-house dental seminars in all areas of dentistry, The Smile Centre of Sarasota and Venice, Florida also benefits from ongoing clinical and technological advances by training with world class institutions.

The Smile Centre’s ongoing interest in learning and staying abreast of the advances in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry and technology in order to understand the bigger picture of overall dental health and its complete, and sometimes incredibly dramatic, effects on people’s quality of life (see our Smile Gallery) allow us to serve The Smile Centre’s guests in the most thorough and truly comprehensive way possible. This extensive knowledge, experience and advanced training position the Smile Centre Team as one of the few practices in the nation trained to provide sophisticated dental techniques for the strategic reconstruction and advanced cosmetic and restorative dentistry of the mouth with emphasis on the whole mouth, joints, airways, head and facial pain, orthodontics and surgical aspects under one roof.
