Dr. Ivan Stangel, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, has spent most of his career in academics at McGill University as a teacher, researcher, and clinician. While at McGill, he worked on developing new materials that strongly bond white filling materials to teeth, one of which has now been commercialized.
Dr. Stangel came to the Washington area via a sabbatical leave at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and enjoyed the area so much that he wound up remaining. Dr. Stangel is an expert in dental materials, and applies that expertise to his practice of restorative dentistry.
Dr. Stangel continues his research on developing new technologies for dentistry. He is well published, gives lectures to dental groups, and is a member of an editorial board of a prestigious journal in the dental field.
Outside the Office
When not in the office or lab, Dr. Stangel loves running on the C&O canal with his retriever, Zach, or sailing the Chesapeake.
