I came to Dr. Stanley Schaeffer with much trepidation. I have had dental problems since early childhood and now in my middle 80's I had reached the stage where the partials I had on the upper teeth were no longer working. The balance of the upper teeth - 7 in all, were now shaking and it was increasingly difficult to chew anything. Dr. Schaeffer told me I had reached the end of the line with the top teeth. I had spoken to friends about losing one's teeth to dentures and they assured me that the experience was not traumatic. For me the idea was so traumatic that life was no longer worth living. The battle to save my teeth was a battle for my life and I did not want to go on. It is difficult for me to fully describe how really amazing Dr. Schaeffer was when handling my case. He knew how I felt and shared with me his own feelings about such trauma. It was the way he spoke to me that made me realize that I still had something to live for even if I had lost my lifelong battle with my teeth. I do a lot of public speaking and I was worried about my appearance with a denture. Dr. Schaeffer assured me that the day of the surgery he would insert the denture and that I wold walk out of his office looking quite normal. What he said was true. The surgery went well and I had no pain. He had previously told me of the food I would have to eat during the next few weeks. I was well prepared. The day after the surgery I came in for a checkup. He told me it would take some time for me to feel comfortable and that I was to come in to see him as many times as was necessary to perfect the adjustments to the denture. It is six months since the surgery. I am fine and very happy with the results. In closing, I will say that anyone who is a patient of Dr. Schaeffer is very fortunate. he is indeed, not only a very skilled dentist, but a very caring human being.

I have been going to Dr..Schaeffer for the last 2 years. I am deathly afraid of going to dentists had so many issues in the past, but once I stepped into Dr..Schaeffer's office. Everyone made me feel so welcome and comfortable. He listened to me while I explained my fears, and gave me a great pep talk. I believe his words were something like "You need to stop being afraid and do it". I sat in the chair figuring out ways to get out of there but he held me to my word, and he has a way of giving an injection that is painless, I didn't feel anything, and he is even better at extractions’ would recommend him to anyone. My sister is the one who told me about him, and I am happy that I listened to her. Excellent dentist.

Our daughter needed a couple of small cavities filled for the first time and we took her to Dr. Schaeffer. What a great decision that was on our part! First of all, she got her appointment within a few days, and then when we showed up, there was literally only 4 minutes of waiting time which was very impressive, since it's so annoying to wait in a doctor's office for too long. Then, he and his staff were very nice and gentle with her, so that she was as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. Highly recommend!

Dr. Schaefer is an excellent dentist. In all the years I have been coming to him he and his staff have given me excellent care. He has reasonable prices and has been extremely flexible in working with me when my insurance did not cover certain procedures. I think he is such a good dentist that my mother is now a regular patient of his since she moved to California three years ago. I would recommend Dr. Schaffer to any one that is looking for a good dentist in the Escondido area.

I've used this place several times for both my sons high school dances throughout the years. My sister used for her bridal party and i have always had excellent service. The staff is friendly and their prices are very reasonable. Just last week i called 2 days before prom, no questions asked they had a tux for my son for WELL under $100. He even wasn't sure about what color tie so they let him take both. I highly recommend this place. They go above and beyond w out hesitation.

Dr. Schaeffer made any upper denture for me in 2008. he had me return to see him quite a few times in order to get the proper height and fit, and allowed me to see t he shape and size of the teeth in a wax state. When he and I were completely satisfied with the denture, Dr. Schaeffer sent it out for the final process. When Dr. Schaeffer delivered the denture, he suggested that I may need adjustment visits, and asked me to call and set up appointments as needed.

This is the best dentist office I have ever been to. My husband and I both come here and since we are both getting older we need a lot of work done. All the staff here is wonderful, gentle, kind, patient, professional and very nice to be around with. The office is immaculate and the bonus is the peaceful fish tank in the waiting room. I hope he does not retire any time soon, keep up the good work.

I get everything done with Dr. Shaeffer. I had some cavities taken care of, a root canal, and a retainer made. He really knows his stuff. I wish there were more dentists like him. He will personally call you to make sure that you are doing okay after you have a procedure done. He really cares about all his patients. He also donates his services for the homeless. How many dentists do that?

Dr. Schaeffer gives absolutely painless injections. I am very happy with his treatment of my wife & myself. He has done crowns, root canals & filings for us over the years. He is available when needed for emergencies. His fees are very reasonable. I have and will continue to recommend him highly to my friends.
Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
