Dr. Alisha Stanford grew up in the close-knit community of Starke, Florida. Her father is Dr. Harry Gruen, an accomplished dentist of 40 years. Watching her father and his love of dentistry, Dr. Stanford knew at an early age that she would follow in his footsteps.
Alisha Stanford attended Florida State University for her undergraduate studies and the University of Florida Dental School, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1997.
Dr. Stanford is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and Northeast District Society. She attends numerous continuing education courses so that she can continue to provide her patients with quality, cutting-edge dentistry.
Dr. Stanford and her husband, Doug, reside in Northern St. Johns County with their two children, Will and Jillian. During her time away from the office, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and being a devoted mother. An admitted perfectionist who maintains intense focus caring for her patients, she cherishes mindlessly losing herself in the numerous recordings on her DVR.
