T. Daniel Haeussner, DMD
Dr. Haeussner has lived in Northeast Florida since 1975. Dentistry runs in his family! His father was a dentist, his mother is a dental hygienist, and his brother is also a dentist.
After graduating from Bishop Kenny High School, Dr. Haeussner received his undergraduate degree from his beloved University of Florida. He is very proud of his Gator education and bleeds orange and blue. He then went on to graduate from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where he obtained an excellent education and also learned to appreciate the mild Florida “winters".
A perfectionist when it comes to dentistry, Dr. Haeussner has taken countless hours of continuing education and is committed to providing his patients with the latest techniques in dentistry. He is always looking for new ways to make each patient’s experience a better one each time they visit the office.
Dr. Haeussner has been trained in traditional bracket-and-wire braces as well as invisible braces (also known as Invisalign). He has completed other comprehensive training in esthetic smile reconstruction, implants, and CEREC same-day crowns.
Dr. Haeussner and his wife Kara have two beautiful children who mean the world to them. He enjoys fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, and anything outdoors.
Seeing new families in the office is one of Dr. Haeussner's favorite things, and he is passionate about growing the practice and providing excellent dental care to every one of his patients.
