Dr. Charles N. Stanfield
After graduating from the University of North Carolina in 1974, Dr. Stanfield worked as a research associate at the VA Hospital in Durham, NC. He earned his Master of Life Science in Microbiology at North Carolina State University, then went to the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill for dental school.
While his academic credentials are strong—including completing a National Institute of Dental Research (NIDR) fellowship at UNC Chapel Hill and being the co-author of more than 14 scientific papers—Dr. Stanfield is most proud of the “strong, talented, caring team I have, and the relationships we’ve developed with our patients over 30-plus years.”
Dr. Stanfield and his wife Melanie, an attorney, have been married for over 30 years. He says that Melanie is “one of the most intelligent people I know. I really depend on her insight. She truly is my best friend.”They are the proud parents of two sons, Charlie who graduated UNC – Chapel Hill class of 2014 and Kevin who graduated UNC – Chapel Hill class of 2016.
Good dental health shouldn’t be just for the wealthy, a belief Dr. Stanfield acts on by volunteering with the Guilford County Adult Dental Care and Give a Kid a Smile programs, both of which provide dental care to those in need.
Dr. Stanfield, an Eagle Scout, also has volunteered as a Boy Scout leader for 6 years. Active in Jamestown Presbyterian Church, he’s a church Elder and has been a Sunday school teacher.
