On Thursday, August 11, Drs. Robert & Bobbi Stanley traveled to BioHorizons corporate headquarters in Birmingham, AL as guests of Vice President of Research and Development, Fred Molz.
BioHorizons provides an extensive portfolio of dental implants and biologics products (used for gum grafts, tissue and bone grafts and resorbable wound dressings) in 85 markets worldwide. Their focus is on a comprehensive combination of science, innovation, and service. They are currently the 5th largest implant company in the world and a global leader for biologic based solutions such as Alloderm.
The visit included meetings with team leaders from several departments including prosthetics, biologics, implants and practice development. “I knew the BioHorizons products were phenomenal before our trip to their Alabama office; but seeing their behind-the-scenes attention to detail was incredible. It reaffirmed my commitment to our partnership,” said Dr. Bobbi Stanley
Dr. Robert Stanley left a successful career as a Ph.D. Biomechanical Engineer to attend UNC School of Dentistry and join his wife Dr. Bobbi at the family dental practice. His focus at Stanley Dentistry in Cary NC is dental implants, tissue, and bone grafting as well as sedation dentistry. “Placing Dental Implants is essentially an engineering project of the utmost importance,” commented Dr. Rob. He continued, “You are placing a screw millimeters from vital tissues, nerves, blood vessels and sinus cavities. There is no room for error. It must be precise. I’m proud to partner with BioHorizons to give patients a beautiful, quality smile that will last a lifetime.”
Both dentists agreed that the highlight of the trip was meeting with senior members from each department as they shared plans for future projects. Drs. Stanley were honored to be asked for their feedback on products and services slated for future release. “As practicing dentists, we are using their products and placing dental implants daily. For BioHorizons to solicit our feedback really underscores their diligence and commitment to delivering quality,” noted Dr. Robert Stanley.
Drs. Robert and Bobbi Stanley are both Diplomates in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and place fully guided implants at Stanley Dentistry in Cary NC and are Founders and Senior Instructors at Stanley Institute for Comprehensive Dentistry, a dental continuing education institute.
