One of happiest moments of Dr. Christopher Stansbury’s life was when he realized his own jaw issues could be corrected with orthodontic treatment. Being able to pass along that same joy to his patients, and help them become the best version of themselves, makes Dr. Chris love his profession.
As an orthodontist, Dr. Chris is passionate about helping each patient put the best smile forward in school, work, and social situations. He knows first-hand what it’s like to feel self-conscious about one’s teeth, so he loves to help people achieve their best smile. He finds his greatest fulfillment when a patient finishes treatment and walks out of the practice proud of their smile and eager to share it with the world!
Dr. Chris loves how each team member is incredibly dedicated to each patient. We build genuine relationships with everyone who walks through the door and care about them as if they were a family member. He enjoys hearing the team laughing and sharing stories with patients, and watching how each person is treated with compassion and empathy.
