Our Global Network’s co-founder, Dr. Miguel Stanley, has been named one of the “32 Most Influential People in Dentistry” by Incisal Edge magazine, alongside some of the biggest names in the field, which means congratulations are definitely in order!
Dr. Miguel Stanley, dental humanitarian and so much more
One of the few dentists on the list, and only a handful of European professionals, all eyes are on Dr. Miguel Stanley’s current work in stem cell therapy combined with light therapy, and advanced biological dentistry healing protocols in what he calls “immune dentistry”, as well as the evolution of the Paz Protocol and a host of other innovative biohacking technologies.
Acclaimed the “Dental Humanitarian”, Dr. Miguel Stanley’s most recent efforts in supporting those in need of medical supplies and aid in war-torn Ukraine – to where he travelled in February – also caught the attention of the dental magazine’s staff. His passionate dedication to all things oral health, to the Slow Dentistry Global Network, to teaching at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and as a standout international lecturer, did the rest.
Changing the face of oral healthcare
Dr. Miguel Stanley is a world recognised leader in dentistry, who has been talking about and practicing the dentistry of the future for over 20 years now. His career has been focused on promoting high-quality dental care with a strong sense of ethics and minimal invasiveness to better protect patients, while never losing sight of the crucial link between oral health and general health. And his positive influence on the industry is clearly visible: over 200 lectures and webinars, with in-person talks in over 50 countries; with more than 50 published articles, he is the host of the first ever National Geographic documentary on dentistry. Considered one of the top 100 dentists in the world, every year, Dr. Miguel Stanley positively impacts 10 million people with his knowledge and experience.
The future of dentistry
According to Dr. Stanley, “the future of dentistry isn’t going to be cosmetics, it’s in immunology and airway function, and in targeting the pathways connecting oral health to systemic health”. Challenging the status quo when it comes to the dental industry is what each one of the“32 Most Influential People in Dentistry” on this incredible list have in common and what inspires us, as oral healthcare professionals and advocates, to keep moving forward, to keep doing more and doing better. As Dr. Miguel Stanley likes to say “the golden age of dentistry is yet to come”.
