As already stated, Dr. Dan was lucky enough to watch his father serve this amazing community for several years, which gave him plenty of valuable insight into the world of dentistry. In particular, he always looked forward to watching Dr. Maurer do lab work when he was a young boy. When Dr. Dan was midway through his undergraduate degree at Trinity, he directly shadowed both his father and Dr. Terry Hoerner, and that time gave him the final push he needed to pursue this career for himself. Several years later, he stills feels entirely confident that it was the right decision! As a true people person, his love of this work grows more every day.
