Meet The Dentist
Brian L. Danielsson, DDS, MAGD.
Dr. Brian Danielsson grew up in Palm Springs and decided on dentistry as his future profession at the age of 10, thanks to the influence of his childhood dentist. After his undergraduate degree in business, he continued on at Loma Linda University in the School of Dentistry and graduated with the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1986. He and his lovely wife Sandy decided he would serve our country in the U.S. Air Force for three years after dental school. Captain Danielsson was stationed at Luke AFB in Phoenix, AZ and was blessed to have rotations through the specialties and while there, their daughter Sarah was born.
They felt lead to move back to Sandy’s home town of Ridgecrest where he associated with Dr. Bachman for two years. That is when their son David was born. He opened his own office across the breezeway. That was 28 years ago! Dr. Danielsson has always focused on high tech dentistry with state-of-the-art materials and equipment. He goes to many continuing education courses each year and became a master in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2011. He is on the editorial advisory board for the dental magazine Incisal Edge, our regional board member for the Kern County Dental Society and one of two Kern County delegates to the California Dental Association.
Brian is a deacon at Cornerstone Bible Church and goes on dental mission trips each year. Besides camping and traveling, he enjoys yoga, pickle ball, snow skiing and riding his ATV around our local trails.
