Dr. Robert B. Stanton
Fort Lauderdale’s Premier Cosmetic Dentist
Robert Stanton was born and raised in Tampa Florida to his father, chief of surgery at a local hospital and his mother, an ER physician. When he became disillusioned with being on pace to be valedictorian of his high school in Tampa without learning as much as he wanted, he decided to attend boarding school at Pine Crest Prep in Fort Lauderdale to better prepare for college and his aspiration of becoming a plastic surgeon. He chose to attend the University of Miami after being accepted into a dual admission accelerated medical school program. However, a year and a half into the program he became unsure of the landscape of practicing medicine as doctors were seeing less autonomy and more involvement from insurance companies and hospital bureaucracies.
After many conversations with different health professionals and many days shadowing all types of different physicians including dental specialists, he realized that dentistry was the best career for him as it was the right balance of art, science and autonomy. He decided to attend Tufts University in Boston, MA as it has always been one of the top schools in the country and he wanted to live in a new part of the country that he had not experienced.
A dentist with a passion for art, technology and science
In 2001, he moved back to Florida practicing all over Broward county before deciding to settle in east Fort Lauderdale. He took over a failing practice and immediately differentiated itself by utilizing the latest technology and doing large complex cosmetic and restorative cases in ways never seen done in the area. He garnered the attention of several dental journals and technology companies and started teaching and lecturing all over North America and Europe, teaching thousands of dentists advanced techniques in cosmetic and computer assisted dentistry.
"My team makes this practice what it is because our patients are getting quality dental care while enjoying every moment."

A customized approach is what sets Dr. Stanton apart
As his practice and family grew, he decided to stop traveling to lecture and focused on his practice and family. He also saw the corruption and bias that prevailed with most dental lecturers and the companies that sponsored them and wanted to focus on mentoring high school and dental students where he could make an impact sharing his actual experience and not just saying whatever a huge dental company that signed a check wanted him to say, like so many other lecturers. He now only endorses products that he actively uses every day and believes in. His virtues are family, integrity and justice and these permeate every aspect of his personal and professional life.
Dr. Stanton was asked to become involved in the research and development of Philips Zoom and Sonicare and still maintains this key opinion leader position. His straight forward high quality methods garnered attention of local athletes and celebrities and he became a team dentist for the NFL's Miami Dolphins football team.
