“I am originally from Ohio and came to Nashua after completing my dental and orthodontic training at Tufts School of Dental Medicine. My wife, Mary, is a native New Englander growing up in Rhode Island, so settling here in Nashua, was an easy way to stay in touch with her family. Both of us are very active in the community, supporting the schools and the symphony. Of course just keeping up with the individual schedules of our six children keeps us quite busy.
My passion for orthodontics is because of the role I get to play in helping provide my patients with beautiful healthy smiles!“

AWAY FROM THE OFFICE.....
I enjoy spending time with my family seen below and my dog, Leo. I like to golf, play tennis and ski. Around the house, I am a pretty good cook and love to do home projects of all types.

She completed her American Board of Orthodontics board certification process shortly after her graduation in 2015.

Dani is excited to practice with her father back in Nashua, NH, where she grew up. As the second of the six Phillis children, she is the first to join the practice, but may not be the last, as her younger sister Stephanie is a current dental student hoping to pursue orthodontics, and her younger brother Hugh has dental aspirations as well.
When she’s not in the office, Dani enjoys playing tennis, skiing, hiking and trying new outdoor activities. She and her husband live in Somerville, MA and are looking forward to what their first years of marriage will bring. Like getting a puppy……
