Learn Who We Are

  • Mandi Dodd

    Mandi Dodd is the office’s “Lady of Many Hats” and enjoys bossing around her brother, Dr. Josh.  She’s happy to discuss dental insurance with you but would rather hear about your family and any new recipes or crafts you have tried.  She lives in New Palestine with her husband Casey Dodd, Principal at Mt. Vernon H.S., and her daughters, Nora and Beca.  Mandi has a lot of interests, including working outside, reading, crafting, sewing, painting, online shopping…but she rarely has a quiet moment to herself to actually enjoy any of them.

  • Dr.
    Josh Stoner

    Dr. Josh Stoner has been practicing since 2013 and has excelled at integrating some of his dad’s techniques with newer advancements in dentistry.  His wife, Jessica, works at an insurance office and the two enjoy spending time with their friends and playing at the pool with their young children, Leo and Tinley.  Dr. Josh loves to talk baseball and golf and can quote movie lines with the best of them.  Try to stump him when you come in for your appointment!

  • Dr.
    Robert & Kathy Stoner

    Dr. Robert Stoner and his wife, Kathy, are semi-retired from the practice.  They both have over 40 years in dentistry, as dentist and dental hygienist.  Their limited hours here allow them more time working outside, camping, spoiling grandkids, and catching an occasional baseball game.  If you want to visit with them, make sure to schedule on Wednesdays!

  • Sarah Galligan

    Sarah Galligan is our Front Desk Assistant and is the smiling face you encounter first at EFD.  She enjoys getting to know our patients and tolerates listening to automated insurance systems.  What she loves most is binge-watching television, naps, and taking walks with her husband, Steve, a technician at IU Health, and her dog, Zoe.  Oh, and reading too (she’s not a mush brain).
