Meet Dan Rairigh, DDS

I am a 2000 graduate from Bethany College in West Virginia, where I majored in biology and graduated Summa Cum Laude with distinction.

I went on to attend West Virginia University School of Dentistry and graduated in the top of my class in 2004.

Following graduation, I attended the Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Studies, where I furthered my knowledge of occlusion and esthetics to achieve natural, cosmetic, and functional dental restorations.

I am a sedation dentist who has been trained by DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation) to help you achieve the anxiety-free dental treatment that you need with a positive and comfortable experience. With so many patients (over 30%!) avoiding dental treatment due to anxiety and fear, there is a solution we offer to help these dental patients reach optimal oral health and obtain smiles they can be proud of! Our team has had training to safely monitor you throughout your entire treatment to ensure the safest experience possible.

I underwent extensive dental implant training at the prestigious Midwest Implant Institute and completed their extremely rigorous externship program. This advanced training and the incorporation of dental cone beam 3-D advanced imaging (ICAT) technology allows me to provide dental implant treatment to Pittsburgh dental patients who are seeking to improve their lives with the great results dental implants can provide. In 2014, I was the recipient of the prestigious “Duke Heller Award” for my commitment to excellence in the field of dental implantology. I take great pride in being a Pittsburgh dentist and serving my dental patients with the most advanced implant care available.
