Dr. Stanley Hirst, DDS
Â Dr. Stanley Hirst was born in Michigan as the youngest of four with family ties to Flasher, ND. He graduated from Pacific Union College in 1977.Â It was soon after college that he became interested in helping people with their dental health problems when a family friendÂ told him of his missionary dental trips to Mexico. Dr. Hirst attended Loma Linda University School of Dentistry and received his DDS in 1982. He met his wife Jane, while she was attending school at Loma Linda for Dietetics and her Masters degree in public health.Â They married and returned to her hometown. He has been serving the dental needs of the community families in Minot, ND since 1983. He provides a wide range of dental services to adults and children.

In his 28 years of practice, Dr. Hirst has been active in continuing education taking courses in orthodontics, esthetic/cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He is currently pursuing a series of courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute in Neuromuscular Dentistry. These courses focus on the relationship between the jaw and tooth positions and chronic headaches and facial pain. Joint pain, face pain, headaches are related indirectly to teeth 90% of the time.Â Dr. Hirst has seen success in relieving some of these chronic conditions in patients that have been suffering with these symptoms for years. He is also looking to gain more experience and knowledge on sleep apnea and its relationship to dentistry as it has significant medical complication if left untreated.
