With finely honed clinical skills and an artistic eye, Dr. Stan Heiner creates amazing smiles for his patients. He focuses on each patient’s uniqueness: their malocclusion, the shape of their face, and their treatment goals when he creates their care plan. This guarantees the most comfortable and timely orthodontic experience, and delivers the strongest smile for each person.
Dr. Heiner is driven to excellence and brings that to every patient. He loves seeing the evolution in a person: from debilitating, unattractively crooked teeth to healthy, properly aligned teeth and a beaming smile. A specialist in challenging cases, Dr. Heiner brings his experience and desire to help each person achieve the best possible smile.
Dr. Heiner never tires of watching a patient’s personality transform as he or she moves through treatment. As people see their new smile begin to take shape, they feel more comfortable with their appearance. They become more outgoing and confident when they talk and laugh with others. By the end of treatment, the person’s self-esteem has blossomed and he or she is proud to show the world a new Heiner Smile.
