Dr. Mike Stanley is a Georgia native, born in Marietta and was raised just up the road in Canton, GA. After participating in two years of full-time missionary work in Peru, he returned to the United States where he earned his BS in Biology from Brigham Young University and his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ.
After being awarded the Health Professional Scholarship to attend dental school, Dr. Stanley was directly commissioned as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. His service alongside our country’s Marine Corps for 4 years in North and South Carolina was a truly transformational experience.
At every stage in his career, Dr. Stanley has been recognized for outstanding service to the community, clinical excellence in his field, and innovation with the integration of modern technologies in patient care. The Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal (MOVSM), Dean’s Clinician Award, and Fleet Marine Force Specialist are a few of the distinctions he has been awarded while striving to provide the best care to patients through compassion, courtesy, and hard work.
Dr. Stanley enjoys spending time with his wife and four children and thrives in the outdoors. His favorite activities include rock climbing, cycling, backpacking, fishing, and hiking. He also loves reading and laughing at a good joke.
