A graduate of the University of Kansas, he received his DMD and MD degrees from Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Harvard Medical School.
After completing his Oral Surgery and General Surgery training at the Massachusetts General Hospital, he was named Assistant Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN. He later returned to the Boston area to serve as Clinical Instructor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Dental School. He was still active in that position during his early years working for the practice.
Dr. Stone has served as President of the Massachusetts Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, President of Saints Medical Center hospital medical staff, Trustee of Saints Medical Center, and an American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery examiner and section chairman. He received the "Committee Person of the Year" Award from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2006 while serving as Chairman of their coding and healthcare advocacy committees.
Dr. Stone presently serves on the Patient Care Assessment Committee and Operating Room Committee of Lowell General Hospital Saints Campus; and is a representative of AAOMS to the American Association of Dental Consultants. A member of the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery National Insurance Company (OMSNIC) Advisory Panel since 1999, he also serves on that company's Risk Management Committee.
The veteran partner in the practice, Dr. Stone specializes in wisdom tooth extractions, dental implants, corrective jaw or orthognathic surgery, treatment of TMJ, Sleep Apnea and Botox or Juvederm treatments.
He has extracted wisdom teeth in teenagers who then returned to him years later as an adult, and even had their own children come to see him. He reflects: "I feel especially gratified when a patient says I helped to make a difference in their life."
