Stan Drabik, DDS
I am passionate about two aspects of my orthodontic practice that I feel need to coexist: quality treatment and patient experience. We have developed a “patient-centered” philosophy in our office, which our staff firmly embraces and understands. Our daily decisions are based on what is best for our patients.
Communication is another very important aspect of successful treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. My staff and I take the time to interact with our patients and parents of patients to answer questions and educate wherever needed. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know my patients, and I love watching them go through the orthodontic transformation. It’s amazing!
I have been proud to serve this community with the very best and cutting edge orthodontic care since June of 1994. My team and I are not only creating ideal occlusions, but we are also creating the most beautiful smiles in Rochester.

Outside the Office
My wife, Kris, and I met in college and were married my freshman year of dental school. Kris and I have traveled this path, hand in hand, from day one. She is an integral part of our practice. We have three beautiful children who all work in our office as well. We also have a dog named Rocky, named after one of my favorite film stars, Sylvester Stallone. Kris and I enjoy experiencing the adventure of life together, whether we’re exercising, hiking, listening to music, or just relaxing at home with the family. We have made a lot of great memories traveling with our children.
As an office, we are active supporters of our patients’ extracurricular activities from sports to musicals, so it’s not uncommon to see our name on banners, t-shirts, or in programs. We have also been strong supporters of the Webster Youth Triathlon. Kris helps run the Christmas distribution at the Webster Community Chest. Kris, our staff, and I are happy to be active in a variety of philanthropy events in the Rochester area.
