We’re excited to introduce you to the new dentists joining our Lexington practice. Dr. Danielle O’Brian and Dr. Turner O’Brian are bringing their training, skills, and talent to our Lexington dental practice, and we look forward to watching them build healthy smiles and improve patients’ lives with compassionate, cutting-edge care!
Meet Dr. Danielle O’Brian
A native of Fishers, IN, Dr. Danielle O’Brian grew up watching her dad improve smiles as an orthodontist, and it’s what made her fall in love with the idea of helping people experience the joy of a newly transformed smile that made them look great and feel more confident. She decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a career in dentistry. After graduating in 2015 from Miami University in Ohio, she went on to earn her dental degree from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry four years later, with extensive experience in oral surgery and special training in Invisalign, oral sedation, and restoring implants.
And now, Dr. Danielle gets to experience that same joy she saw in her dad’s patients right along with patients of her own when they reach their smile goals, something that she believes makes being a dentist truly rewarding.
Because she understands that visiting the dentist isn’t everyone’s favorite thing to do, Dr. Danielle works hard to make sure every single one of her patients feels at ease while in her chair, carefully listening to their individual needs and concerns to ensure their comfort.
One of the best parts of her job is helping people not only reach a better state of oral health but giving them smiles that make them happier and more confident. Dr. Danielle feels blessed to be able to give patients the dental care they need to more confidently pursue their personal and professional goals so they can live more fully.
When she’s not helping patients with exceptional dentistry, Dr. Danielle loves spending time with family and friends, especially her husband, Dr. Turner O’Brian, and their little girl, who’s always keeping them busy running around outside or playing dress-up. She hopes to continue to grow her family alongside the Beaumont Family Dentistry crew.
Meet Dr. Turner O’Brian
Growing up in a blue-collar family in a small Kentucky town, Dr. Turner O’Brian was always encouraged by his parents to pursue higher education and a career that would allow him to use his innate intellectual curiosity and ability and willingness to work hard. Inspired as a young high school student by his town’s dentist, Dr. Turner realized dentistry would give him that chance to bring his skills and his passion for connecting with people together to improve lives.
To make that a reality, he put his mind and blue-collar work ethic to good use, first earning his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry at Eastern Kentucky University and then his DMD in 2019 from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. He has additional certification in Invisalign and experience in performing oral surgery and administering oral sedation.
But perhaps more life-changing than the stellar education he received was the love he found during those years. He met his wife, Dr. Danielle O’Brian, and now they get to work alongside each other as the newest members of our Beaumont Family Dentistry team!
Dr. Turner shares his wife’s compassion and understands how uncomfortable visiting the dentist can be for many people. That’s why he goes out of his way to give patients the time and attention they need to feel as calm and safe in his care as possible. Because he enjoys making that personal connection with others, Dr. Turner loves having the chance to get to know his patients, hearing their stories and building the kind of relationships with them that helps him understand on a deeper level what their needs and goals are for better dental health.
More than anything, Dr. Turner’s goal is to help you achieve yours, giving you the dental care necessary to improve your smile, your health, and your quality of life, and he’s happy if he can also become your friend in the process!
In his time away from our practice, Dr. Turner enjoys hanging out with his wife and daughter and spending time with family. You might often find him enjoying the great outdoors skiing, fishing, and being on the lake. He’s also a sports fanatic and loves watching his beloved Kentucky Wildcats play football and basketball.
