Meet Us and Our Location

Dr. Dan Paulos

Dr. Paulos received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in 1989. Since then he has devoted his time to private practice. His passion for dentistry is tied to a strong commitment to a life long learning process. Continuing education is arguably the most important factor in making one dentist stand out from another. His postgraduate studies would include the Seattle Institute of Advanced Dental Education, the William C. Strupp Postgraduate School of Dentistry and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. The pictures on the Gallery page are meant to show the skills, knowledge base and love of dentistry that Dr. Paulos enjoys. Many dental websites use stock photos that have been purchased. All the photos that you see on the Gallery page are of patients treated by Dr. Paulos. The photos are not retouched or enhanced in any way.

When you enter the office, Stephen will greet you. He won’t be behind a closed window with a sign telling you to sign in. He will know your name when you arrive. He is the treatment coordinator and will help you with everything from explaining questions about treatment and scheduling appointments to answering questions about fees and insurance to assisting with your dental care. Stephen is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He has been with Dr. Paulos since 2000.


Team of Specialists and Lab Technicians

If needed, we work with a carefully selected team of professionals to help you. Just because we can do a procedure doesn't mean we will. Your interests are placed before our production goals. If we feel another team member can do something better, more comfortably or for a lower cost than us, we will use them. We feel the days of general dentists doing everything "in office" should be over. Advances in dentistry make it difficult for any single dentist to be talented enough to "do it all" any longer. We do what we are really good at and love. With all the rest, we are able to use others that we routinely work with to obtain outstanding results. We could not be as successful as we are without the help of these critical team members. They know what we expect of them and how to coordinate what they need to do so we can smoothly provide your care.
