Stanley Institute is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Stanley has earned Fellow status with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).  Obtaining this accolade places Dr. Stanley in an elite group of dentists that have earned AGD Fellowship. The honor recognizes dentists committed to oral healthcare that goes above and beyond.

AGD was founded in 1952 and is the only professional association that exclusively represents the unique concerns and interests of general dentists. AGD supports its more than 40,000 members with resources to promote better oral health for the American population.

This encompassing approach to family dentistry allows him to focus on dental implants and oral surgery while she practices cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics.

The AGD Fellowship is one of many accolades Dr. Stanley has earned during his tenure and places him in a group of fewer than 6% of dentists. In addition to the most recent Fellowship, Dr. Stanley has been recognized as a Fellow with the American Association of Implant Dentistry (AAID), Diplomate with both the American Board of Oral Implantologists (ABOI) and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI).
