Quotes

To me, dentistry is so much more than teeth. It is an opportunity to create relationships and build friendships with people of all ages whom I would never have the chance to meet otherwise. I love being part of the journey with a person who won’t smile at our initial appointment because of embarrassment about his or her teeth and then seeing the patient give me a wonderful smile the day finish treatment. I love hearing adult patients tell me they can chew with teeth that they have never been able to chew with before. It’s the most gratifying part of my work, and what I look forward to doing every day.

Moving teeth into the right position and restoring them to health is something I do, but if teeth weren’t connected to people I wouldn’t wake up every morning excited about what I do. It’s the people that surround the teeth that makes dentistry interesting. I love meeting people and hearing their stories and then becoming part of their story.

Personal favorites

Dr. Stallings’ favorite dance move is avoiding the dance floor and eating snacks. His favorite songs to play on guitar are The Gigue from BWV 997 and “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. He has never seen “It’s a Wonderful Life”, which is one of his favorite things to tell people during the holiday season.
