Dr. Daniel M. Whiteman
Dr. Whiteman was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. His undergraduate studies were completed at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology and Physics. From there he came to Boston to study dentistry at Boston University, at what is today known as Boston Medical Center. Dr. Whiteman successfully completed licensing examinations in three countries, including the prestigious National Dental Examining Board of Canada that allows for licensure in every province across the country. In addition, Dr. Whiteman received a perfect score in all four clinical sections of the Northeast Regional Board of Dental Examiners (U.S. examination for fifteen states and D.C.). These achievements reflect the exacting standards he applies to himself in regards to his dentistry. Highly committed to his profession, Dr. Whiteman is always studying his professional journals, attending study groups and taking courses in his field, far exceeding the required continuing education credit requirement mandated by the state of Massachusetts.
After practicing dentistry for ten years as an associate in many diverse clinical settings*, he opened his own startup dental practice in Brookline in 2003. It was his extensive experience in dentistry prior to establishing his own practice that aided Dr. Whiteman in his conception of what kind of practice he wanted in terms of staff, equipment, materials, and technology. Dr. Whiteman did not take any patients from any of the previous practices he worked in. In keeping with his honest approach to life and practice, he built his practice the hard but ethical way. Instead of purchasing a practice, he built one from scratch, using word of mouth as virtually the only means of building his practice. Many of Dr. Whiteman’s previous patients have sought him out on their own accord.
Dr. Whiteman enjoys meeting new patients on a daily basis, maintaining long time patient relationships and helping people to feel and look their best.
Recently Dr. Whiteman was awarded Mastership Certification - the highest level of certification available from the World Clinical Laser Institute. This certification indicates that Dr. Whiteman has completed all of the training and requirements relating to Laser Physics, Safety and Regulatory Guidelines with the Er, Cr: YSGG Laser.
On his time off, Dr. Whiteman enjoys reading, cooking and occasionally indulging his sweet tooth.
Dr. Whiteman lives in Newton with his wife and three children.

My Professional Views:
It is my philosophy that all health care workers have a responsibility to provide the best care possible for the patients they are treating. It is our job to be both teacher and healer. By educating the patient on the nature of the disease process, its prevention and treatment, a level of disease prevention can be maintained.
