The Athletic Dentist • Dentist & Fitness Enthusiast

Admittedly, Danielle Davis never had much interest in working out until a cute guy at dental school asked if she wanted to work out with him after class. A decade later, they’re married with two kids, and fitness is an important part of their lives. 

Danielle has done everything from long-distance running to group classes like Orangetheory and Barre to strength training. Currently, she and her husband work out at ATC Fitness and Esporta and always make a point to incorporate family walks. When Danielle first got pregnant with her son in 2020, everyone would say things like, “Oh, you won’t be able to both still go to the gym every day when the baby comes,” but discovered that where there’s a will, there’s a way. She and her husband ensure they both get time to work out daily. Danielle says she can’t be a good mom, wife, or dentist if she doesn’t care for herself — dentistry is more physically demanding than many people realize. 

Danielle has taken her dental career to the next level with her own practice, 901 Dental. She designed it from the ground up in 2018 with the goal of doing dentistry differently. Going to the dentist is often not the highlight of people’s day, so they strive to make the experience as painless and enjoyable as possible at her practice. 

As a healthcare provider, Danielle feels she has a unique opportunity to serve people in our community, and they don’t take that responsibility lightly at her practice. Danielle is proud to say that everyone who walks through the doors of 901 Dental is treated with the utmost respect and compassion. With over 900 5-star Google reviews, Danielle is confident they’ve succeeded in making high-quality dental care convenient, comfortable, and accessible!
