A native of Ainsworth, Nebraska and a resident of Grand Island for more than 21 years, Dr. Stec has a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and a DDS degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in Lincoln.  Because he believes strongly in staying current on the newest procedures, Dr. Stec regularly attends classes at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), the premier training institute for dentists in the country.
Courses at LVI include a series of lectures and hands-on training with actual patients.  Dr. Stec has completed a number of courses at LVI, including Advanced Functional Aesthetics, Comprehensive Aesthetic Reconstruction, Advanced Posterior Aesthetics, Practical Occlusion in the Progressive Practice, and a Standard Proficiency Dental Laser course, which ensures he keeps up-to-date on all the latest advances in dentistry.

---- Frequently Asked Questions ----

How does Dr. Stec keep up-to-date on all of the current techniques and materials?
Dr. Stec regularly attends training courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the world's premier postgraduate training facility. At LVI, he attends lectures and participates in hands-on training clinics in the latest techniques and procedures. His staff also has attended classes at LVI. In addition, he subscribes to all of the latest industry journals to keep tabs on research and development in the dental industry.

At what age should my children first see Dr. Stec?
Most children should have their first visit to a dentist at approximately 2 1/2 to 3 years old. This gives your dentist an opportunity to spot and prevent any potential problems and gives your child a positive first visit to the dentist. If there appear to be problems, however, Dr. Stec will see children around six months after their baby teeth have come in, or around their first birthday.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?
There are a number of ways to whiten your teeth these days, from over-the-counter whiteners to in-office treatments. Dr. Stec uses the Zoom! Whitening System, as seen on ABC's hit show, Extreme Makeover. Dr. Stec can evaluate the whiteness of your smile based on current color and the causes of any discoloration, and determine the method that will work best for you.

What precautions do you take to ensure patient safety?
Safety is an important issue for us, so we take a number of steps to ensure it. First, all instruments are scrubbed in the Meile Dental Dishwasher before being wrapped and sterilized. Our sterilizer is tested routinely to confirm it works properly, and because we have new equipment, all water lines can be and are disinfected. In short, your safety is our top priority.

 Crowns, veneers, onlays, inlays and partials - where can I learn more about these procedures?
You might first check out the Patient Library section on this Web site, which is designed to provide you with the latest information. Simply click on the Patient Library link in the margin and select your article topic from the listing provided. If you want even more information, visit the American Dental Association.

Do I have to floss everyday? Is it really that important?
Daily flossing really is that important. Flossing loosens food particles in tight spaces your toothbrush can't reach, gets rid of plaque and exercises your gums. Think of daily flossing as insurance for your smile's future.
