Why She Was Nominated

Dr. Dano’s multi-specialty practice uses the most up-to- date technology, diagnostic tools and innovations in dentistry — just like the doctor herself.
“I always like to keep updated,” she says, explaining her rationale. “It gives me the opportunity to perform better and deliver to my patients all the best that my profession has to offer.”

Inspiration

“I always wanted to be a doctor, but I learned along the road that dentistry is where I can achieve instant, visible results in patients’ smiles.”

Philosophy

Dr. Dano urges those in her practice to strive for perfection above
all else, and she tells every patient that “a smile is a gift in any language.”

Exciting New Trend

Oral-appliance therapy to help combat obstructive sleep apnea. “It’s exciting and rewarding for me to treat patients who snore and periodically stop breathing while they’re asleep,” Dr. Dano says. “It’s a medical condition that has a dental treatment solution.”

Tool She Can't Live Without

Patience and respect. “Without them,” she observes, “any technology in the world would be utterly useless.”
