Clay Aiken Premiers His New Smile On Broadway
In 2003, Clay Aiken found fame on Fox’s American Idol. In 2007, he found his smile at Stanley Dentistry in Cary, NC.
On Valentine’s Day 2007 Clay made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jimmy Kimmel referred to Dr. Bobbi Stanley as “The Tooth Fairy.”
“Clay contacted me right after he landed a booking on the Jimmy Kimmel show,” said Dr. Stanley. “It was only five days before his appearance and he really wanted a new smile before the show.” Typically, the procedure would have taken up to three weeks to complete. But, having an office equipped with cutting-edge technology and a patient list that includes other celebrities, athletes and busy business professionals, Dr. Stanley is used to working under such tight deadlines.
“We only had three days from start to finish, but we are set-up to accommodate busy patients in Clay’s situation, whether they are local or from out-of-town” said Dr. Stanley. “So, our lab in California was not surprised to hear my request and agreed to go on 24-hour call to help me help Clay.”
High-tech advantages included: ceramic reconstruction (CEREC), an in-office 3-dimensional, computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing (3D/CAD/CAM) system for creating all-ceramic restorations in the course of a single treatment session; digital x-rays; computer guided, painless injections; dental laser technology; and the services of the top-rated dental lab in the U.S.
“It was a great experience. Dr. Stanley fit me in at the very last-minute and provided me with a wonderful new smile,” said Clay. “It was really more of a spa experience than a dental appointment. Although I live in Raleigh, I know that Dr. Stanley has a program for out-of-town patients who want to come in for a long weekend and go home with a beautiful new smile.”
A native of Raleigh, Clay Aiken, came in second place to Ruben Studdard in 2003 during the second season of the long-running, hit reality-show, “American Idol.” Since that time he has sold more than 6 million albums, co-authored the best selling book, “Learning to Sing: Hearing the Music in Your Life,” and sold-out six concert tours. He was a focus of the Off-Broadway musical, Idol: The Musical, and has appeared on “Ed,” “Saturday Night Live,” Scrubs” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!“
When Clay Aiken made his Broadway debut, in January, in Monty Python’s Spamalot he was wearing a new smile created by Dr. Bobbi Stanley, a nationally acclaimed Cosmetic Dentist practicing in Cary, a suburb of Clay’s hometown of Raleigh, NC. Clay joined the cast of the award-winning play in the role of Sir Robin on January 18 and continued through May 4. “Lovingly ripped off” from from the classic film comedy, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” Spamalot is a musical play directed by Mike Nichols with a new score composed by Jon Du Prez and former Month Python’s Flying Circus cast member, Eric Idle. The musical earned the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Director and an acting award for Sara Ramirez. Still playing on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre, Spamalot also currently enjoys runs in London, Las Vegas, and Melbourne with a national tour.
