Dr. Robert Stanley earns AAID Fellowship

Stanley Institute is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Stanley has earned Fellow status with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). This prestigious honor places Dr. Stanley in an elite group of dentists who have earned AAID Fellowship. The honor recognizes dentists displaying excellence in implant dentistry, both surgical and restorative, as well as ongoing implant maintenance.

AAID was founded in 1951 and was the first professional group dedicated to excellence in the field of implant dentistry. Current membership boasts nearly 6,000 dentists, specialists and dental team members throughout the United States and beyond.

Dr. Stanley began his professional career as a mechanical engineer and later completed dental school. He and his wife Dr. Bobbi Stanley own Stanley Dentistry in Cary NC, a comprehensive dental practice. The practice’s encompassing approach to family dentistry allows him to focus on dental implants and oral surgery while she practices cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics. His unique perspective on dentistry combines his training in engineering with his knowledge of dentistry and dental implants.

The AAID Fellowship is one of many accolades Dr. Stanley has earned during his dental career. In addition to the most recent Fellowship, Dr. Stanley has been recognized as a Diplomate with both the American Board of Oral Implantologists and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He is also a Fellow with the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Bobbi Stanley commented on the honor, “Dr. Rob has challenged himself as long as I’ve known him. His commitment to excellence is limitless. Obviously, we are thrilled with his achievements.”

In keeping with the mission of the AAID, “To advance the science and practice of implant dentistry through education,” Drs. Stanley founded Stanley Institute to provide straightforward continuing education that dentists can use immediately upon returning to the office. Both Dr. Rob and Dr. Bobbi have structured their course offerings to include didactic and hands-on learning as well as a live surgical component to really underscore and implement the classroom instruction.

Dr. Rob Stanley commented, saying “What an honor to be recognized by a group as distinguished as AAID. We are living in the greatest time in dental history. The technology and advances in implant dentistry are incredible and I am excited to be on the forefront of implantology in my practice and at the institute.”
