About Dr. Charles Stone
Growing up in Lake Jackson, Texas, Dr. Charles Stone knew from a young age that he wanted to pursue a career in either the medical or dental field. He initially tried his hand in research but eventually discovered that he wanted to produce more immediate results than research could provide. Many of his father’s friends were dentists and seemed happy, so Dr. Stone decided to pursue dentistry.
It was during dental school that he chose to specialize in oral surgery. He liked that oral surgery allowed him to treat complex cases, such as facial traumas. After spending time in the army, Dr. Stone had a lot of experience with facial traumas and was attracted to the idea of being able to restore aesthetics, function, and form all at once. He enjoys that every day is different in the oral surgery specialty because every patient has unique needs that he is trained to address.
Dr. Stone attended the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), earning his bachelor’s degree with a double major in chemistry and biology. After completing his undergraduate degree, Dr. Stone spent two years conducting research for Baylor Medical Center regarding DNA and birth abnormalities. After his research, Dr. Stone returned to school at Texas A&M University, Baylor College of Dentistry to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Before continuing to complete his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency, Dr. Stone joined the army. While in the army, he earned his Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Certificate.
Dr. Stone moved to Washington D.C. to complete his four-year residency at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He earned his oral and maxillofacial surgery certificate in 2005. During his residency, he spent two months at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey treating facial trauma and five months at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center performing facial reconstructions. He also held a teaching position at his residency program.
After leaving the army and moving to Tyler, Texas, in 2009, Dr. Stone worked hard to complete extensive exams and meet exemplary standards to earn his certifications from both the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology. As a double board-certified oral surgeon, Dr. Stone possesses the highest qualifications to perform the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery and safely administer all forms of anesthesia.
Much like his brother, Dr. Charles Stone enjoys spending time outdoors with his family. When he’s not at work, Dr. Stone enjoys hunting, fishing, and going to the lake. Additionally, he is a deacon at his church and enjoys his time serving the community. He also loves spending time with his three children, Charles, Mary Kate, and Hampton.
