Meet Our Founder: Dr. Richard A. Stanley
With a father and two uncles who were also dentists, you could say dentistry is in Dr. Richard Stanley’s blood. He grew up with a first-hand glimpse of the impact dentistry has on the health and wellbeing of his family’s patients. After graduating from the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry in 1986, Dr. Stanley opened his own private practice with a vision: to provide patients with exceptional dental care in a warm and friendly environment.
Over the course of his 30-year career, Dr. Stanley has remained at the forefront of his field by investing in cutting-edge technology and pursuing post-graduate training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). Widely recognized as the preeminent training program for dental professionals, LVI education signifies a commitment to the highest standards of quality and care. Dr. Stanley also conducts regular training sessions with the dental team of The Smile Center to further hone the knowledge and skill of every member of our staff.
While many patients seek the care of Dr. Stanley for his credentials and reputation for excellence, it is his kind and genuine chair side manner that have earned him the loyalty and word-of-mouth recommendations of his patients. When you visit The Smile Centre, you will be treated with honesty and respect, like a member of our family.
