Michael J. Stiles, DDS
I'm Dr. Stiles, and dentistry has been my passion for over three decades. With more than 30 years of experience, I've dedicated my career to the art of restoring teeth, not just for functional purposes, but to witness the transformative power it holds in bringing back smiles.
Getting to know my patients and their families is at the heart of what I do. Every interaction is a chance to forge connections that go beyond the dental chair, creating an environment of trust and comfort that contributes to the overall experience.
As a dentist, my joy comes from the gratification of witnessing patients' smiles light up after restoration work. Knowing that I've played a role in restoring not only their teeth but also their confidence is what fuels my commitment to this profession. My journey in dentistry has been a remarkable one, filled with continuous learning and a profound sense of purpose.
Excellence in Education
I started on my educational journey at the University of Iowa School of Dentistry, where I laid the foundation of my dental expertise. I then completed a comprehensive General Practice residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, solidifying my commitment to delivering exceptional dental care.
My commitment to staying at the forefront of dental advancements is unwavering. Actively participating in the DISC- Denver Implant Study Club, I collaborate with fellow professionals to delve into innovative approaches within the realm of implant dentistry.
Regularly attending continuing education courses allows me to remain updated on the latest techniques and technology. This ensures that my patients receive the benefit of the most current and advanced dental care available.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Cedar Rapids, IA but have been living in SE Aurora for an incredible 23 years. Prior to that, I called Westminster home for a span of 12 years. My partner in life, Cheryl, is my rock. Together, we have 1 daughter, 3 sons, and a granddaughter. Our household includes two thriving beehives and a serene Koi pond, adding a touch of nature's beauty to our lives.
Outside of work, I love to be outdoors. Hiking, camping, cycling, snowboarding, and even scuba diving - each of these activities fuels my spirit and keeps me attuned to the wonders of the world around us. My fondness for travel has taken me far and wide, and in every new place, my camera captures the moments that define the essence of the journey. But it's not just about exploring new horizons; I find equal pleasure in whipping up culinary delights in the kitchen, creating flavors that bring joy to both family and friends.
Beekeeping has become a personal passion, a testament to my fascination with the intricate workings of nature. The dance of the bees, the sweetness of their honey - it's a world I embrace with heart and soul.
So, from traversing diverse landscapes to capturing life's moments through the lens, and from savoring the magic of the kitchen to nurturing our buzzing companions, life for me is a tapestry woven with love, exploration, and the simple joys that make each day extraordinary.
A Focus on Community
For me, providing exceptional dental care is more than just a profession; it's a commitment to serve and uplift the community I call home. Every smile I transform is a testament to this dedication, as I believe that quality dental care can make a significant impact on individuals' lives and the community as a whole.
I find immense fulfillment in contributing beyond the dental chair. Volunteering for DDS- Donated Dental Services holds a special place in my heart. It's a meaningful way for me to give back to the very community I'm dedicated to serving. Witnessing the positive transformation that dental care can bring to individuals in need reinforces my belief in the power of community support and compassionate care.
In every aspect of my practice and personal endeavors, my focus remains steadfast on enriching the lives of those around me. Whether it's through professional dental care or lending a helping hand, I'm committed to creating a positive impact that resonates within the community I hold dear.
