Dr Tony V. Stankevicius, otherwise known as “Dr Stan”, is one of the principal orthodontists at The Orthodontic Specialists.
Dr Stan has been a dentist for over 35 years and an orthodontist for the last 20. Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, he gained his initial dental degree at Adelaide University, and followed that with a Master of Business Administration while working full time in his general practices.
He finally gained his Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry (Ortho) and moved with his young family to Launceston to join this Orthodontic practice in 2003.
Dr Stan and his wife Birute live in Launceston. They thoroughly enjoy the local life, the locally grown produce that is available seasonally and the general Tasmanian environment in which they have brought up their twin daughters. They both enjoy time spent growing their own fruits and vegetables in the garden, which does take up most of the spare weekends.
Both daughters are currently studying at university, one having moved to UTAS in Hobart and the other at Adelaide University in South Australia.
Dr Stan gained his initial certification through The Australasian Orthodontic Board (AOB) in 2003, and has recently completed his definitive re-certification. The Australasian Orthodontic Board (AOB) emphasises continuing education, providing ASO/NZAO Members the incentive and means of improving and developing their orthodontic knowledge and skills throughout their professional working lives.
He is also a Member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons (Ortho), Australian Society of Orthodontists, Australian Dental Association as well as the World Federation of Orthodontists.
