Beloved local dentist Dr. Stan Keith Brady passed away on Monday, Sept. 21, 2015 at age 53.
Services were held Saturday, Sept. 26 at Sellars Funeral Home in Lebanon.
He is survived by his wife, Tina; son, Rush; and daughter, Mia.
Prior to beginning his dental practice in 1988, Brady was an accomplished scholar. The Memphis native served as Class President and as Salutatorian at his high school graduation. He graduated with honors in Biology.
He was a graduate of Rhodes College and the University Of Tennessee School Of Dentistry.
Brady met his future wife, Tina, when they were teens. In a Woman of Wilson column published in The Wilson Post in May, Mrs. Brady recounted their initial meeting at the local skating rink. "He was actually a floor guard at the skating rink and kicked me off the floor for skating too fast," she said. The couple married in 1983.
Following his graduation from dental school, the couple knew they wanted to relocate to a smaller community to build a practice and raise a family. "After visiting several smaller towns in Tennessee, Lebanon seemed perfect," Tina said. "We fell in love with it."
Dr. Brady's office is located on West Main Street in Lebanon. He was an active member of the American Dental Association, the Nashville Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
The Wilson Post recently reported in April that Dr. Brady was awarded for his volunteer service as one of Interfaith Dental Clinic's in-house dentists.
Interfaith Dental Clinic is a non-profit organization which helps restore and protect the oral health of uninsured, low-income working individuals, their children and elderly patients in Middle Tennessee through access to affordable dental care, oral disease prevention services and oral health education. Brady was one of the volunteer dentists on-staff at the state-of-the-art facility on Patterson Street in Nashville.
In 2014, the Bradys were featured on the television show "Private Lives of Nashville Wives."
