Orthodontics

The alignment of your smile plays a significant role in many aspects of your dental health, from your smile’s appearance to the way in which your bite functions. Orthodontics is the science of studying and optimizing bite alignment, typically with the assistance of orthodontic or cosmetic braces, so patients can once again enjoy the confidence of a beautiful and healthy smile. Correcting alignment issues also helps improve the long-term health and integrity of your natural tooth structure by creating more balanced distribution of your bite pressure. Our offices provide comprehensive, tailored orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages, and we offer a variety of appliances to suit every patient’s needs and preferences.

Dr. Stockdale received his DDS from the Loma Linda School of Dentistry in 1981. He completed his MS in Orthodontics at the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1990.

It has always been a desire of Dr. Stockdale’s to work in a team environment that’s informal and fun. While he takes his patients’ care very seriously, he also understands the importance of having fun! Dr. Stockdale loves the relationships him and his team have created with patients and their families, and the laughter that permeates the office makes for a warm and enjoyable environment everyone can enjoy.

Away from work Dr. Stockdale is a man of many interests. He enjoys woodworking, raises parrots, has bred and shown alpacas, raises tropical frogs and is involved in habitat conservation. Dr. Stockdale has played various musical instruments, starting with piano as a child, then trumpet, tuba, guitar, French horn, harpsichord, bass recorder, baritone and soprano saxophone, to name a few!
