Dr Miguel Stanley is the clinical director of White Clinic, based in Lisbon, Portugal, and founded 20 years ago. He is a passionate advocate for high-quality dental care, and his career has consequently been focused on restoring smiles with his interdisciplinary team, using state-of the-art technology, software and materials, according to a strong sense of ethics and in pursuit of minimal invasiveness to better protect his patients. This is the reason that he created the No Half Smiles treatment philosophy and Slow Dentistry, both aimed at improving the patient experience and the overall quality of care. Based on his training in implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and functional occlusion, Dr Stanley has developed an advanced biological cosmetic dentistry approach to his work that incorporates the full scope of action of modern dentistry. He spends most of his time managing his longtime team and learning about new technologies in dentistry.

Dr Stanley has given over 200 keynote lectures in more than 50 countries, and his lectures are critically acclaimed by dentists of all ages and  specialties for the open dialogue and simple and beautiful manner in which complex cases are presented. He is the vice president of the Digital Dentistry Society and a member of many implant and cosmetic dentistry societies around the world. He is an ambassador for the CleanImplant Foundation and has been an expert for the online education platform DentalXP since 2009. Last year, Dr Stanley hosted a documentary on the new boundaries of dentistry for National Geographic, and he has even given a TED Talk on the future of the dental profession. He was nominated one of the top 100 dentists in the world by his peers in 2020.
