Our Team

Stasch Dental

Stasch Dental has been a pillar of the neighborhood for some thirty years, and from day one, we have made it our goal to give our patients the very best in dental care.

We know that for many, visiting the dentist is a source of anxiety. Whether you are concerned about the cost or time or you simply have a fear of the dentist, our team works hard to ensure you have the most pleasant experience possible.

When you come in for an appointment, you’ll be greeted—probably by name—by our friendly, welcoming staff. You will immediately see that our inviting office offers a beautiful view. Even more important, you will quickly observe that we have stayed current with dental technology. When treatment is needed, we want to make sure it is as comfortable and painless as possible for our patients, and taking advantage of the latest advancements in dental technology is one way we do this.

One of our goals as a practice is to educate our patients so well on taking good care of their teeth that they rarely need a dental service other than examinations and cleanings. Prevention is easier and less expensive than treatment!

We invite you to visit our office, where we focus on preventive care so you and your family can enjoy healthy smiles for years to come. We look forward to getting to know both you and your family!

Dr. Jeffrey Stasch, DDS

My journey started in a VERY small town in the sandhills of north-central Nebraska. As a young boy, people would bring anything that was broken or worn out and say, “See if you can fix this.” I love taking anything apart, seeing how it works (or doesn’t) and fixing it. Presently I am completely disassembling and restoring a 1962 Jeep pickup.

I went to school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and have practiced in Garden City for 33 years—the blink of an eye! Through those years, I have been president of the Kansas Dental Association and served on the State Dental Board.

Nationally, I served on the American Dental Association Council on Access Prevention and Interprofessional Relations, and was a founding member of the Give Kids a Smile Advisory Board, as well as Kansas representative to the House of Delegates. I was co-founder of the Kansas Mission of Mercy dental access project, which led to being the first president of the America’s Dentists Care Foundation, which provides free dental care in 35 states to the tune of $45 million annually.

But the bottom line for me is that dentistry is a perfect blending of science and art: It must look beautiful, and it has to last a long time. My best day is when I see a patient who came in with a mouth full of problems, and after fixing things, they have come in for years of perfect checkups. That is a win for both of us!
