Dr. Deborha Staten, DMD
Dr. Deborha Staten built her practice around three central philosophies:
- Every patient is unique, so every treatment plan must be unique as well. One-size-fits-all dentistry has no place at Desert Hills Dental. Instead, she bases every treatment and procedure recommendation on a number of highly personalized factors.
- Building lasting patient relationships depends on open communication and trust. Dr. Staten respects her patients and believes they should be an active participant in their oral health. To this end she always discusses treatment options in detail so that her patients have the information they need to make the right choices.
- Innovative technology and materials deployed by trained professionals can greatly increase the quality of patient care Dr. Staten can offer. Dr. Staten holds certifications in both laser dental techniques and nitrous oxide administration for the enhanced care and comfort of her patients.
A Las Vegas native, Dr. Staten earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Chemistry minor at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Pursuing her passion led her to earn her Doctorate of Dental Medicine, also from UNLV. So dedicated is Dr. Staten to the value of education, she even taught Endodontic Dental Principles at UNLV’s Dental School Simulation Lab.
Currently serving as a Captain in Nevada’s Army Reserve’s Medical Detachment, Dr. Staten also holds active memberships in several professional organizations, including the American Dental Education Association and the American Association of Women Dentists.
When she’s not at the office, Dr. Staten enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. An avid skier, both on the slopes and in the water, Dr. Staten also enjoys boating, cooking, and traveling.
