About Dr. Staggs

     Morristown Family Dentistry was founded in 1975 by R. Alan Schneider DDS & his wife, Barbara, with the vision of creating a dental practice that treats every patient with dignity and first-rate care.   

     Dr. Russell Staggs  joined the Morristown Family Dentistry team in 2012.  He resides in New Palestine with his wife and two children.  His father and wife are both dentists.  Growing up in upstate New York, Dr Staggs is a transplanted Hoosier.  His Parents & Grandparents were from Indiana.  Therefore, attending Indiana University in Bloomington was a perfect fit, as was attending Indiana University Dental School (DDS 1998).   Indiana University was alma mater of his father (Stephen D Staggs DDS 1962).   So Dr Staggs followed in his fathers' footsteps, a mere 36 years later.   Following graduation from IU School of Dentistry in 1998,  Dr Staggs spent a year in an Inner-city clinic.   Citizens’ Health Center, located at 16th & College in Downtown Indianapolis, was a great resource of dental training and care.  It was an opportunity to give back to the community and learn the essentials of patient care.  The following years have been spent is private practice.   Dr Staggs owned and operated a private practice in Greensburg, Indiana.    The opportunity to practice in Greensburg imparted much more than Dr Staggs’ can ever describe, including a loyal staff, patients and associated businesses….which are the cornerstone of any healthcare practice.  Dr Staggs is a member of the American Dental Association(ADA.org), Academy of General Dentistry(AGD.org), Indiana Dental Association(INDental.org) & the Indianapolis District Dental Society(IndyDentalSociety.org).
