Dr. Stephen A. Bankston grew up in Southern Arkansas. His educational background began at the University of Pennsylvania, where he played outside linebacker on the football team during his undergraduate career. He received both his Bachelor of Arts and Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania. His internship and residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery was completed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Following his residency, Dr. Bankston engaged in an intensive craniofacial trauma and reconstructive surgery fellowship at the University of Miami School of Medicine, Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Dr. Bankston then accepted an academic position at the Medical College of Ga., and moved to Augusta to be an assistant professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery. After one year he was promoted to associate director of residency training. It was there that Dr. Bankston learned about Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery. He joined the practice in September 2001.

Dr. Bankston is a Fellow of the American Society of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD). ASIRD is committed to improving the quality of care for dental implant patients by elevating the standards of surgical and restorative dental education and practice. Not every dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants and not all placers of dental implants are surgeons. By using an ASIRD team, rest assured that your dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants and only a trained surgeon will place your implant.

Dr. Bankston has a special interest in computer-guided implantology and major reconstructive surgery. He has participated in clinical trials and lectured nationally in this cutting-edge field. Dr. Bankston currently serves as Chairman of Oral and Maxillofacial Sugery at Northside Hospital. In addition, he is Chief of Staff for the Ben Massell Clinic. Dr. Bankston is one of the many surgeons in the practice who volunteer their time at the 90-year-old clinic on 14th Street in downtown Atlanta. He believes that he and his fellow doctors enjoy “just giving back to the community.”

Dr. Bankston practices out of the Cumberland office in NW Atlanta.
