Meet the Doctors
I was terrified of the dentist! I tried Dr. Cobb and staff and have not looked back. I would never use another dentist. The staff really cares about the patient. I appreciate and adore everyone in the office! Everything and everyone is perfect!
Meet Dr. Daniel Cobb
Dr. Daniel Cobb graduated with degrees in Dentistry and Public Health from Loma Linda University in 1977-78. After six years of international experience in dentistry, he returned to his hometown of Centerville, Ohio to begin private practice.

In his early years of private practice he developed skills in restorative and cosmetic dentistry by receiving certification through Las Vegas Institute and completed significant amounts of continuing education in this field. His interests expanded to embrace ideas about dental health as a mirror to understanding systemic health needs of the body and how improving dental health can positively impact the patient’s overall health. By completing at least 100 hours of continuing education each year, Dr. Cobb has added additional knowledge and skills that prepares him to provide excellent dental care to his patients.
Married in 1974, Dr. Cobb and his wife have three grown children, a daughter and two sons. He loves to travel, especially to favorite places like the Adirondack Mountains.
