Get to Know Danny Hayes, DMD

Watch Video

Dr. Danny Hayes was born in Portage, IN. He began his college education at Marian University in Indianapolis, and he subsequently completed his postgraduate studies at Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA. While attending, he was not only a member of the American Student Dental Association and Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity, but he was also selected for the Stomatognathic Honor Society in recognition for his prosthodontic work. Of course, his passion for dentistry has not stopped or slowed down even a little after his graduation, and to this day he still attends continuing education courses for dental implant placement, mini-implants, porcelain veneers, sedation, laser dentistry, and other advanced dental procedures. Over his two decades of practicing dentistry, he’s been a stickler for perfection and helping his patients conquer their dental phobias and discover how to bring out the true beauty of their teeth. He currently lives with his wife Kathy along with their two sons, Patrick and Daniel, and their daughter Riley. Among Dr. Hayes’s hobbies aside from spending time with the people he loves are golf, fishing, fly fishing, baseball, boating, traveling, woodworking, and even flying – in fact, he’s aiming to become a certified private pilot!
