In addition to completing numerous advanced training courses, Dr. Starley has also served as OHSU affiliate faculty helping train dental students. His commitment to excellence and integrity are at the forefront of his priorities. On a personal level, he is honest, likeable, empathetic and passionate about dentistry. He is married and has two children with his wife, Kelsey, who is a prior Astoria resident. Outside the office, Dr. Starley is looking forward to enjoying the hunting and fishing our area has to offer.
The word “Family” is in our business name because that is the center of Dr. Starley’s practice philosophy. Our goal is to treat you as a member of our family. We know that being a dental patient can leave you feeling scared, and vulnerable. Our promise to you is that we will never take your trust for granted. Our practice is different than many others because we work to educate you about your situation and then we let you make the decision about your treatment options. You can relax knowing that our team will provide pain free treatments, a relaxing environment, and we will always have your best interest in mind.
Starley Family Dentistry is a clean, professional, and state of the art dental office that utilizes the latest technology and treatment modalities available. Dr. Starley plans to build upon the great reputation that Dr. Robert Karby has created for the office with the last 33 years of his service to the surrounding Astoria area. Our vision is centered around excellent patient care, and we know that our reputation in the community is only as good as the quality of services that we render. That is why we aim to provide the absolute best patient care imaginable.
