Years ago, Dr. Alexandra Stahle made the decision to leave her home country of Colombia to start a new life in the United States. Although the decision was a difficult one, she knew that there was something more in store for her as she embarked on this journey of self-discovery. As Erica Jong the famous novelist once said,
“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
And so began Dr. Stahle’s courageous journey. Throughout this period of growth, she became bolder and more independent. She also met and wed the love of her life and had two children, creating a beautiful family of her own.
Fast forward 20 plus years, Dr. Stahle now owns a flourishing dental practice located in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a strong-willed, passionate entrepreneur, yet she has a heart of gold. When asked what matters to her most, Dr. Stahle explained that her patients being well cared for was of paramount importance. She takes pride in delivering ethical dentistry at the highest level. She is vehemently against cutting corners. Her principles are bound by honesty, strength, and trust. Her patients, in her eyes, represent an extension of her family. Dr. Stahle understands that the deep trust necessary for a healthy patient doctor relationship is precious, and therefore aims to do what is in her patients’ best interest.
“To me, every patient has a voice. Not only is it my job to provide exceptional care, it’s also my responsibility to make sure that everyone is heard. A patient’s autonomy should never be taken from them."
Dr. Stahle’s passion for dentistry stems from her appreciation of how the practice uniquely combines facets of art and science. When you think about it, it’s quite difficult to be an exceptional practitioner if you do not value both of these characteristics. On one hand, you must understand the intricate design of nature and how it comes together to create a flawless biological system. On the other hand, you must appreciate the beauty in not only the design of the system but how it affects our health, appearance, confidence and most importantly our overall well-being. Dr. Stahle explained,
“It was important to me that I chose a career that I would be passionate about because it’s what I would be dedicating much of my life to. I love what I do. I am constantly learning and growing. I feel unsettled if I know that I’m not doing the best that I could be. So, for me, that’s simply not an option.”
For this reason, you will find that Dr. Stahle has dedicated a great deal of time taking continuing education as well as investing in her practice, ensuring that her care is of the highest caliber.
To Dr. Stahle, each day is a gift. She feels fortunate that she is living a life she couldn’t have dreamt of when stepping foot on American soil years ago. When not taking care of her beloved patients, you will most certainly find Dr. Stahle making memories with her family, whether it’s playing volleyball on the beach, dancing to salsa music or simply watching her children and husband laughing and having a good time.
“I have no regrets. I feel at peace with myself and my life choices and wish the same for all those whom I have the pleasure of serving. It is the best thing in the world to know that I am exactly where I am meant to be."
Dr. Stahle has also completed courses at The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, L. Stephen Buchanan’s Dental Education Laboratories, Esthetic Professionals, the Beverly Hills Institute of Dental Esthetics, and Spear Dental Education.
