Dr. Daniel Witcher, DDS
Dr. Daniel Witcher comes from a dental background, having grown up in Southern California with a father who is a general dentist and a mother who is a dental hygienist. He attended the University of Southern California for his undergraduate education, and the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry for his dental schooling. Following that, he was accepted into the United States Navy Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) residency program, where he completed a General Surgery Internship and OMS residency right here in San Diego. During this world-class training program, Dr. Witcher learned state of the art surgical techniques in all aspects of oral and facial surgery, from dental surgery, to implant surgery, to complex facial reconstruction, trauma, and cosmetic surgery. He then accepted active duty orders aboard the Nimitz Class aircraft carrier, the USS George Washington, based out of Yokosuka, Japan. After two deployments, Dr. Witcher returned to San Diego, where he was stationed with the United States Marines at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot. He completed his board certification at that point, becoming a Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, and discharging from the Navy to pursue a career as a private practice oral surgeon. An active learner, Dr. Witcher makes a point of staying up to date on the latest dental and surgical techniques and technology. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, a Fellow of the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, and a member of the California Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Diego County Dental Society. In addition, Dr. Witcher enjoys giving back to those less fortunate, volunteering in surgical and dental missions to Fiji and Mexico, as well as participating in CDA Cares and the California Care Force. Recently, Dr. Witcher was elected to the Board of Directors for the San Diego Dental Health Foundation, where he is working with other leaders of the San Diego dental community to build a dental clinic in the Veteran's Village of San Diego to provide free dental care to San Diego Vets in need. In addition, Dr. Witcher was also recently named an editor of the San Diego County Dental Society Newsletter, as well as a member of the editorial board of the California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. In his spare time, Dr. Witcher enjoys the outdoors, including running, hiking, biking, fishing, camping, and snowboarding. He especially likes hiking Cuyamaca Rancho State Park and getting Julian pies afterwards! An avid sports fan, you can catch him cheering on the USC Trojans and SDSU Aztecs on Saturdays and the San Diego Padres during baseball season. Go Pads!!

Dr. Witcher and his staff were excellent. They all made my son, (the patient), my husband and me feel very comfortable with the oral surgery. My son felt no pain and there has been very little swelling and bleeding. Thank you Dr. Witcher and staff!! You're the best!
