Meet Dr. Myra

Myra Montgomery Stafford, DMD

I'd like to share a little about myself; including my family, education, and just a bit of history. I am Dr. Myra Stafford, a native of Jasper. My family includes my wonderful husband, Earl, and our two children, Trey and Audrey Beth. Both Trey and Audrey Beth are attending the University of Alabama. Trey is busy expanding his Trey Bali tie dye endeavor; while Audrey Beth stays busy with all the activities with her Delta Delta Delta Sorority. Even though both of my parents are not with us anymore, their memories shine brightly every day. My mom and best friend, Audrey Montgomery, lived just down the road from us & retired from the Jasper City School system where she worked for many years as the secretary at West Jasper School. My dad, Lathen Montgomery, retired, a UMWA miner from Bessie Mines. Mom and Dad were married for 55 years. My sister, Janet Ayers, also lives in Jasper. She is retired from teaching English at Maddox Middle School. My nephew, Chris Ayers, is currently advancing his education and stays as busy as ever.      

After graduating from Walker High School and attending Walker College, I graduated from David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. Four years later I received my DMD degree from The University of Alabama School of Dentistry. My post graduate studies include extensive training at the Dawson Center of Dental Studies in St. Petersburg, FL, as well as advanced training for Botox and Dermal fillers with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, among numerous continuing education courses.

I returned home to Jasper to begin my practice of dentistry on August 9, 1982 in the original office at the Masonic Building in downtown Jasper. Four years later I relocated to the cottage office at 803 Airport Road South. Twenty 'fast' years later I moved for the second and final time to the new office located at 300 North Airport Road. I absolutely love all the space... and the picture windows... and the bright 'beachy' colors... Can't wait for you to visit!    

I am a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Alabama Dental Association, Sixth District Dental Society, University of Alabama School of Dentistry Alumni Association, Walker County Chapter of the University of Alabama Alumni Association and president of the Jasper Dental Society since 1982. My family and I are members of Woodland Trace Church of Christ. I also enjoy being a member of the Pilot Club of Jasper.
