Meet Your Pittsburgh Dentist
Dan Rairigh, DDS
Pittsburgh Cosmetic & General Family Dentist
Pittsburgh Magazine Top Dentist 2016-2018
I provide cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry services to you and your family. I’ve also trained in providing sedation dentistry to patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist. At our Pittsburgh dental office, all our patients are treated like family and with the utmost care, respect and honesty.
As a dentist, I take pride in helping someone out of a painful toothache, restoring someone’s lost chewing function, or enhancing a person’s smile. I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families.
I believe in utilizing the latest advancements in dental technology to help my patients. These advancements help me provide better, long-lasting solutions while increasing your comfort and convenience.
At Advanced Dental Solutions of Pittsburgh, my staff and I strive to provide you the best care with a friendly and caring environment. We take time to ensure that you understand all of your options and our recommendations. We explain the procedure so that you know what to expect during and after the procedure. Most of all, we take extra care to ensure you are comfortable throughout the whole process. I welcome you to come visit me and my staff for your next dental visit.
Education & Experience
I am a 2000 graduate from Bethany College in West Virginia, where I majored in biology and graduated Summa Cum Laude with distinction.
I went on to attend West Virginia University School of Dentistry and graduated in the top of my class in 2004.
Following graduation, I attended the Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Studies, where I furthered my knowledge of occlusion and esthetics to achieve natural, cosmetic, and functional dental restorations.
I am a sedation dentist who has been trained by DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation) to help you achieve the anxiety-free dental treatment that you need with a positive and comfortable experience. With so many patients (over 30%!) avoiding dental treatment due to anxiety and fear, there is a solution we offer to help these dental patients reach optimal oral health and obtain smiles they can be proud of! Our team has had training to safely monitor you throughout your entire treatment to ensure the safest experience possible.
I underwent extensive dental implant training at the prestigious Midwest Implant Institute and completed their extremely rigorous externship program. This advanced training and the incorporation of dental cone beam 3-D advanced imaging (ICAT) technology allows me to provide dental implant treatment to Pittsburgh dental patients who are seeking to improve their lives with the great results dental implants can provide. In 2014, I was the recipient of the prestigious “Duke Heller Award” for my commitment to excellence in the field of dental implantology. I take great pride in being a Pittsburgh dentist and serving my dental patients with the most advanced implant care available.
Our Pittsburgh dentist office’s goal is to provide all dental patients with the most proven advancements in the dental field. By staying current on the most up-to-date technologies and treatment protocols available in dentistry today, our dental office is able to treat our Pittsburgh dental patients with the most safe, predictable, and efficient treatment methods available. We believe that good, old fashioned honesty, integrity, and a family-friendly environment can be united with the best dental technologies and advancements the great profession of dentistry has to offer. I am in constant pursuit of dental excellence, undergoing Continuing Dental Education courses and always staying current on the newest surgical and cosmetic techniques in the dental field.
In addition to being a dentist, I am an accomplished artist with natural ability and formal training. I have won awards at both the high school and college level for my paintings and drawings. I believe that my artistic ability coupled with my clinical skills puts me in a unique position to provide you the highest standards of cosmetic and general dental care.
Outside of the Office
I am married to my lovely wife J’aime, my college sweetheart. We have attended the South Hills Bible Chapel since 2004 when we first moved to the South Hills area. We are foster and adoptive parents who have hearts for children who are in the need of a caring, compassionate home where God’s love is shared. Between the dental practice and family, I have very little time left, but I do enjoy working out and drawing.
