Dr. Dan realizes that a person’s teeth are the first thing that most people notice when they meet someone. He chose to become an orthodontist so that he can help change people’s lives, giving them confidence through a beautiful smile. Being an orthodontist is so much more than just a “job” to Dr. Dan. He truly believes that when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. That may sound cliché, but he realizes how blessed he is to have found his life’s purpose. You can feel his energy and compassion from the moment you meet him!

Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Dan considers himself to be a “conservative” dentist. He understands that there are specific instances that require “aggressive” treatment, but he tries to keep parents involved with that decision. During his dental exams he always reviews his findings with parents and the child, so that everyone is well-informed and can make the best decision for the patient.

  • I love this place.  The dentist is great but so is the staff and the ability to watch a movie while getting your teeth cleaned is a perk....My daughter loves to go in every month to get new colors for her bands.
    —Karen Vazquez
