Dr. Christian Daniels

Dr. Christian Daniels grew up in Blaine, Minnesota. He developed a deep interest in exercise and how physical activity promotes a healthy and wholesome life. This influenced him to study Kinesiology at the University of Minnesota. After, he found his true passion for life when he discovered his love for dentistry. In pursuit of that passion, he attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and graduated in 2022.

Some of his hobbies include marathon running, cat fishing (ask him about the biggest catfish he has caught), hiking, boating, and swimming in a lake or riding waves in the ocean. He is married to his beautiful wife Victoria and has a quirky companion; a French bulldog named Ruby.

He is thrilled to be able to serve the people of Luck and Centuria Wisconsin as well as the surrounding communities!
