Meet Dr. Dallin Dance
Dr. Dallin Dance finds honest joy in working with kids. His Seattle upbringing from a big family helped him be comfortable with the little ones. Eight kids in his family brought many adventures, including going to a kind and constant mentor, Uncle Bill, for dental visits growing up. This planted the seed for being a dentist early on. Nephews and nieces started rolling in when his youngest brother was just 6 years old, so there wasn't ever a gap in having youngsters around. His greatest pleasure is spending time with his wife Chelsie and two kids Carter and Georgie! Staying active and exploring the outdoors has been a constant, and with a stroller and baby carrier his kids are with him often. Dr. Dallin enjoys following the trails blazed by his older brothers, starting in their big backyard with tree forts and rope swings as kids and now into a rewarding career of pediatric dentistry with his oldest brother Dr. Thomas Dance, founder of Dance Dentistry For Kids. These two Dance brothers have climbed Mt. Rainier together, endured a 50-mile ultramarathon, and now race around the same office together!
Dr. Dallin Dance is passionate about the prevention of oral disease and helping patients and parents make little changes that create big differences. Helping an anxious patient face their fears and accomplish something hard is a rewarding challenge for Dallin. His goal is to help every young patient grow-up with positive psychology towards the dental environment, leading to lifelong preventative oral health practices.
He graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a degree in Physiology & Developmental Biology. He finished dental training at the University of Washington School of Dentistry in the top 5% of his class then completed a 2-year pediatric dental residency at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. He is a board eligible member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a member of the American Dental Association, and the Idaho State Dental Association.
