Dr. Dan Dansie

Dr. Dan Dansie is a Doctor of Dental Surgery who extracts wisdom teeth at multiple dental offices in Utah and Alaska. Throughout his dental career he has successfully removed over 45,000 wisdom teeth along with thousands of complicated extractions. Dr. Dansie has worked with over a dozen different CRNAs, and he is currently certified through Rocky Mountain Sedation to administer I.V. sedation to his patients. He is also certified to offer oral sedation.

After graduating in 1994 with his doctorate from Creighton, he opened his own office where he practiced general dentistry for 15 years in Payson, Utah. During this time he continued to advance in oral surgery by learning with Karl Koerner DDS, MS, a renowned world-wide expert and speaker on basic oral surgery. Dr. Koerner was and still is a great friend and mentor. Dr. Dansie also worked with Sargon Lazarof DDS from Encino, California. Sargon Lazarof DDS, inventor of the only FDA approved “Immediate Load” Dental Implants (Sargon Dental Implants), personally trained Dr. Dansie how to place and load them. Then on behalf of Dr. Lazarof, Dr. Dansie lectured in multiple states and trained other doctors how to place the Sargon Implant. He has placed about 1,100 dental implants. Dr. Dansie will always be grateful to the Utah Implant Pioneer “Guru” Lecturer, Dental Surgeon, and friend Max J. Malan DDS who has always been a true mentor.

Dr. Dansie likes to give back where he can, and has had opportunities to perform charitable dental work for “Dentistry from the Heart” and many others just because… For the past five years, Dr. Dansie has focused full time on extracting wisdom teeth at many offices as a general dentist. When he is not busy working, he enjoys being outdoors with his friends and family. He has been married to his wife Cindy for 30 years, and they have 8 awesome children, two grandchildren and one on the way! He loves people and he will usually tease and joke with his patients making them smile.
