Meet Dr. Daniel van Galder
Dr. Daniel Van Galder has been a Georgia resident his entire life, having been born in Atlanta and raised in Gwinnett County. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Chemistry in 2008, he became a dental lab technician where he developed a passion for helping others. While working as a lab technician Dr. van Galder was able to see patients’ smiles and lives transformed through dentistry. Through this driving force, he went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the Medical College of Georgia (now known as “Augusta University Dental College of Georgia”). Upon graduation he moved to Marietta, Georgia where he currently resides and practices.
After graduating dental school, Dr. van Galder went on to further his education by completing a residency in IV sedation through the Academy of Medical and Dental Anesthesia. Dr. van Galder has received advanced training in oral surgery and implantology at the Engel Institute and continues to pursue training from some of the most respected doctors around the world. He is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantology.
In addition to working at several other offices, Dr. Daniel Van Galder helped re-focus both the laboratory and office of his father’s practice: Atlanta Dentures. Deciding that care and comfort of his patients were his top priority, he has dedicated extensive time and effort into adding modern techniques and services to the strong foundation of his practice. He has since trained his two younger brothers, Thomas and Michael, in the art of denture fabrication from the unique paradigm of a dentist/lab technician and helped them to shift the lab from a traditional to a high tech digital laboratory.
Dr. van Galder’s mission is to always be aware of all options to provide the best education and treatment he can to ensure the long-term oral health of his patients. He has brought modern treatment techniques to his office through anesthesia; bone grafting and ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation, implant placement and digital dentistry to improve the treatment available at Atlanta Dentures.
In Dr. van Galder’s free time he enjoys hunting, playing guitar, being physically active and spending time traveling with his wife, Brittany. They live in Marietta where they are members of North Metro Church.
