Dan and Alexis are a husband and wife team who live locally in the Santa Clarita Valley. In September 2014 they opened their dream practice together from scratch! Dr. Dan was born and raised on Long Island, NY where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in his home town from the State University of New York at Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine. Most general dentists begin practicing straight out of dental school, Dan decided to go above and beyond in his training and completed two years of advanced training in general dentistry at the Sepulveda Veterans Affairs Hospital.
During this residency, Dan became proficient in complex oral surgery, periodontal, implant and restorative procedures. It was also the time when he met Alexis, a Harvard University trained dentist who was completing her Endodontic (root canal) Specialist training at UCLA. Together Dan & Alexis offer comprehensive dental care to their patients. In Dan’s words, “we are a multi-specialty ‘mom and pop’ shop, capable of taking care of the entire family from the kids to the grandparents!” The doctors love spending time with family and friends, spoiling their dog Valentine, traveling, cooking, and eating! Dan especially enjoys playing ice hockey, surfing, scuba diving, snowboarding, hiking and conquering local mountains.
Dan and Alexis are both active members of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Fernando Valley Dental Society. Through their participation in the local dental society they were privileged enough to spend time working with Give Kids a Smile, a community outreach program designed to raise awareness about dental health in children via their kindergarten classroom. Most recently Dr. Dan has enjoyed offering surgical care to those in need at the Bridge to Home Santa Clarita homeless shelter.
Their practice philosophy is to treat patients with kindness and compassion and always provide a gentle, pain free dental experience so that their patients can feel comfortable knowing they are in the right dental home.
