Dr. Dave Stoddard is a fellowship-trained rhinologist with expertise in complex sinus and anterior skull base surgery.
Born in Utah, he earned his Bachelor of Science from Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University in 2005 and was inducted to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
He then obtained his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York before completing his residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. While at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Stoddard developed skills in managing the breadth of otolaryngological complaints while developing a special interest in diseases of the paranasal sinuses and skull base.
He pursued those interests in two fellowships in Auckland, New Zealand, learning state of the art approaches for minimally invasive transnasal surgery. He also has been able to participate in international research opportunities, authoring chapters in several otolaryngology textbooks and journals and presenting that research at professional meetings.
While in New Zealand, Dr. Stoddard was able to travel extensively with his wife and four children. His other hobbies include spending time outdoors boating, fishing and camping, as well as watching movies from the 70s and attending concerts with friends.
