Dr. Dantini has been in practice for over 30 years. He firmly believes in patient education, explaining different treatment options, and helping you, the patient, decide the best course of treatment. Dr. Dantini began his dental training at the University of Detroit Dental School and completed his last two years at Loyola University of Chicago. His general practice residency was at Southbury Training School (an extended care facility for special needs patients) in Southbury, Connecticut, and Danbury Hospital in Danbury, Connecticut. Dr. Dantini’s experience with different institutions exposed him to the various methods to solve the same problem. To this day, he approaches each person and situation as unique, requiring its own individual solution.
Dr. Dantini is always looking to enhance quality of treatment and patient comfort. He is one of the area’s earliest adopters of Dental Lasers, acquiring his first Nd:Yag laser in 1991 and was trained by the father of dental laser dentistry, Dr. Terry D Myers. He also was a very early user of Digital radiography and has been making same day crowns since 2001 (known as Cerec crowns). Dr. Dantini was fabricating NTI-ss ( Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System) for clenching and grinding, well before other dentists. He has been on the cutting edge in finding new technologies to best help solve dental problems.
The Jesuit philosophy from his undergraduate training at Loyola University of Chicago; do good, give back, leave this world a better place, has guided Dr. Dantini throughout his career. He served as the President of the Stamford Dental Society, a delegate representing Stamford for the Connecticut State Dental Association. He is the former Dental director for the Dental Clinic that was in the Shippan area, serving the underserved which is now merged into the Community Health Center of Stamford. He currently volunteers his time to the Norwalk Hospital Dental Clinic.
Dr. Dantini is a lifelong resident of New Canaan and has raised his family there. During this time he was involved with Boy Scouts. In his spare time, Dr. Dantini enjoys traveling, photography, and a variety of different outdoor activities.
