"Had a great experience. The office was amazing and the staff was very helpful and insightful. If you are in Pataskala or Etna area and drive out of town for a dentist...don't. My wife and I both made the switch and its conveniently located off of 40 and Columbia Road. Great dentist!!!"

Dr. Danielle Dey


Dr. Dey grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio and has always been interested in a career in healthcare. She attended John Carroll University for her undergraduate education, majoring in Biology. It was during this time that she was exposed to a career in dentistry, and Dr. Dey quickly realized that it would allow her to combine her interests in healthcare with her artistic creativity. Her plans to attend dental school after completing her undergraduate education were postponed after she was hit by a drunk driver. Her recovery required extensive surgeries and rehabilitative therapy; Dr. Dey had a wonderful clinical team that educated her on her options and supported her in her treatment decisions. This difficult time demonstrated the importance of developing a strong doctor-patient partnership, a value that Dr. Dey and the Modern Elevations Dentistry team emphasize in their practice today.


Dr. Dey obtained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Upon graduation, she was commissioned as a captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corps and served for four years. In addition to her formal dental training, Dr. Dey conducted additional rotations focused on Oral Surgery, Endodontics, and Prosthodontics. She has also completed courses in the treatment of orofacial pain, the treatment of sleep apnea, and in advanced dental procedures including implant restorations, clear aligner treatment, and cosmetic procedures, including esthetic dental procedures and facial injectables (Botox). As a result, she is able to provide an enhanced range of services that provide a level of care that is exceptional among general dentists. Dr. Dey places an emphasis on continued learning and is a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, Columbus Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, International Association of Physiological Aesthetics, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. She was selected as one of thirteen dentists nationwide to participate in the inaugural Glidewell Dental Guiding Leaders program in 2019.


Dr. Dey resides in Pickerington, Ohio with her husband Anthony, a corporate lawyer. They have a dog named Shiva, and a cat named Kyrie. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, embroidery, and reading. Dr. Dey also enjoys Pilates and hiking and has a goal to hike in every national park in the United States.
