Only your dentist can give you a beautiful, healthy and long-lasting smile 

                Dan Peterson D.D.S. is a native Nebraskan.  He was born and raised on a small farm in Riverdale, Nebraska.  He graduated from Kearney High School.  He attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln for three years while farming for his family. 

     He than attended University of Nebraska Dental College for four years.  He became an Oral Physician when he graduated in 1975.  He has been in a private, general dentistry practice since this time in Gering, Nebraska.  He believes that what he does in the office is life linked and life changing.

     He designed and built his present solar office in 1983.  He is passionate about dentistry, his family and farming.  He lives on and manages a farm.

     He belongs to the Christian Dental Society, American Dental Association, Nebraska Dental Association, and Promise Keepers. 

     He is known for his tender caring approach for the children in our practice.  He has special training in gum tissue management and performing root canals. Coming from a large extended family has given him the gift of being able to relate in a gentle-hearted manner toward our senior  patients. 

     His willingness to be challenged by change has allowed him to expand his services to meet the needs of the contemporary family with new technology that embraces both his gentle touch with new advancements in dentistry.  He is active in attending continuing education to stay current and updated on procedures and techniques.  He and his staff are Certified.

     I pledge to devote my professional life to the betterment of the health of those who receive my care and to prevent disease whenever possible.  I will not treat patients beyond their needs nor beyond my capabilities, and I will strive to make my services tomorrow better than they were today.

I make this pledge upon my honor.
