Meet Dr. Lisa Stanley

“Pediatric dentistry is a rewarding profession where one can provide children with a pleasant, age-appropriate environment in which to receive dental treatment, while also helping them to develop confidence and trust in a dental team. Many of our patients’ parents tell us that they wish they had had a place like Wild About Smiles when they were growing up!” — Dr. Lisa
