Dr. Dan Ponce D.D.S.


Dr. Ponce believes that creating an enjoyable experience and educating children on the importance of oral health is critical in preventing cavities and shaping each child’s future experiences at the dental office. He takes great care to make each child’s visit to the dentist both fun and memorable and feels invigorated when a fearful child leaves smiling and happy. He also believes that engaging parents in the dialog is a key component of a successful dental visit and he works with each parent to make sure their child’s treatment is well understood.  Dr. Ponce lives in Phoenix with his wife and two children.
