Dr. Robert Stanley

Founder & Creator

Dr. Robert Stanley is the Founder and Creator of Stanley’s Britegums®. Dr. Stanley’s interest in dentistry was brought about by his grandfather who ran a dental office in Chicago during Dr. Stanley’s childhood. After his grandfather passed away, Dr. Stanley went into Engineering and pursued his Masters and PhD in the field at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. He worked at Sony Ericsson in Research Triangle Park as a Senior Project Manager.

While Dr. Stanley loved his life as an engineer, he knew he wanted to do more in the dental field after meeting his wife, Dr. Bobbi Stanley, who was already a successful dentist with a growing dental practice. He obtained a DDS from the University of North Carolina and joined his wife in local practice in Cary, North Carolina. Robert Stanley’s dental acumen paired with his Engineering background help distinguish Stanley Dentistry from other general dentistry practices by offering comprehensive dentistry including oral surgery, root canals, wisdom teeth removal and full mouth reconstruction with dental implants. Still, he knew there was more he could do. After meeting a patient with dark, blotchy gums (and a lack of self-confidence because of it) in Cary, Dr. Stanley invented the Britegums® procedure as a pain-free, affordable, and quick alternative to other dark gums treatments. The cutting-edge Britegums® process allowed Dr. Stanley to give back to people who had lost their self-confidence due to dark or blotchy gums.     

“My favorite part of being a dentist is being able to make a positive impact on someone’s appearance and health every day. If you feel good about your smile, you can conquer the world!”
