General Dentistry

For over thirty years, Dr. Stanford has been taking exceptional care of families in Manchester, MO. He focuses on providing personalized care that is tailored to each patients’ individual needs.

While he practices with a conservative approach to dentistry known as microdentistry, he also takes into consideration how your oral health affects your overall health and well being.

Whether you need to restore a tooth, it's time for your next cleaning, or you would like to enhance your smile, Dr. Stanford can meet your needs.

What Is Microdentistry?

Helping patients maintain their natural teeth for a lifetime is a top priority at Stanford Dental.

In order to best achieve this goal, Dr. Stanford diagnoses with the philosophy of microdentistry in mind. This means that he is striving to detect decay very early on so it can be treated as soon as possible.

Being proactive about treatment achieves two goals:

  1. It eliminates decay before it spreads and creates bigger problems. This benefits our patients because we are able to utilize smaller restorations that require the loss of less tooth structure, maintaining more of your own healthy teeth. 
  2. Using smaller restorations means a less costly and less time-consuming procedure for you.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Your comfort is always a focus at our practice.

Dr. Stanford combines his extensive training and knowledge with the latest dental technology to provide an experience for patients that is more comfortable and efficient.

For example, laser cavity detection allows him to pinpoint tooth decay in its earliest stages, while air abrasion helps him treat patients without the use of the drill or dental anesthetics. Digital impressions provide a more accurate image of your tooth and eliminate the need for the uncomfortable and messy impressions used in the past.
