Danny Evanson, a California native, has been crafting beautiful smiles since the age of 19! He began as a dental ceramist at one of the largest dental laboratories in Northern California, where he underwent a mentorship with Dave Stohlman. In the early 90s, Danny studied at the Las Vegas Dental Institute, earning certification as an advanced ceramist with a focus on cosmetic ceramic restorations. Today, with nearly three decades of experience and success in helping to create thousands of beautiful smiles, he is the founder and president of Reliance Dental Designs.
During his mentorship with Mr. Stohlman, Danny came to understand that tooth restorations represent more than simply a fixed tooth. Instead, a restoration results in a whole new smile for a patient, improving their lives and providing a wide range of oral and mental health benefits. This realization had a profound impact upon Danny. He realized that the perfect restoration was one that achieved the perfect balance between art, science, and craftsmanship.
Seeing the results that his clients and their patients have been able to achieve because of his dedication to his craft has continuously had a profound impact upon Danny. He enjoys being able to witness the results of his work and the instant positive impact his restorations have upon the physical and mental health of their recipients. Thanks to the close relationships he has built with his dental clients, he enjoys the benefits of being able to continuously see the results of his lab’s restorations and the beautiful smiles they create.
The decades of experience and excellent guidance provided to Danny throughout his career has led to him developing extremely high standards for the restorations he, as well as his team, creates. He has not rested upon his or Reliance Dental Designs’ success. Danny is continuously searching out and training himself, as well as his team, in the most advanced technologies, techniques, and materials available.
The past decade has seen an incredible pace for new dental and restoration technologies developing. Danny’s commitment to investing in and staying on the cutting-edge of that technology, as well as his commitment to good old-fashioned craftsmanship, has ensured that Reliance Dental Designs customers receive the absolute best restorations available anywhere.
While not at the office, Danny enjoys getting his hands dirty. Working on and building motorcycles and cars. He has come to appreciate that his hobby has many similarities to his career. When working on a vehicle, every piece, every component has a specific location and function. When it all comes together flawlessly, it is as much art as it is functional. The same holds true for restorations.
Danny has enjoyed working alongside his wife, Taylor, in managing and building Reliance Dental Designs since 2011. Together, they have two sons, Jordan and Devon, as well as one granddaughter named Brielle who they cherish spending time with.
