Dr. Stumph

I married the love of my life, Dawn, in 1996, and graduated from UMKC School of Dentistry in 1999. We moved to Boonville in 2001 and made Cooper County our home. We have two children, McKenna and Carter.

I had no idea what to expect of dentistry as a profession. Well, after 20 years I can honestly say, “I love it!” I love what I do for teeth, and I love what I do for patients. What does that mean? What I do for teeth is something I can take pride in. Similar to fine-woodworking, dentistry rewards attention to detail and the never-ending quest for perfection. I enjoy taking something that is weak, strengthening it, and making it more beautiful. What I like about dentistry most of all involves patients, not their teeth.

The most rewarding thing about my job is earning the trust of my patients, and eliminating their dental fears.

I realize that there is a person connected to the tooth I’m working on, and I try my hardest to make that person as comfortable as possible. What I’ve found is that this approach works. I have many patients who now are virtually fearless when it comes to dentistry, whereas before they were nervous wrecks at the dentist. Every time I see one of these patients it makes me feel great about what I do.

I also love the challenge of staying abreast of the best techniques and products available. Notice I didn’t use the word “newest.” Newest isn’t always the best. I try very hard to sift through marketing hype when it comes to products and procedures. It is no surprise that companies that produce the products all have “research” data that proves their productis best. I search for unbiased information with regard to dental products and procedures, and when a truly better product emerges, I’m quick to incorporate it. Dentistry has changed a lot over the last few decades, and will continue to do so. I look forward to following dentistry wherever it goes, and will continue to adapt my technique and materials to be the best they can be.
