Dr. Daniel Surh, DMD
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT and went on to earn my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. I was awarded the Armed Forces Health Profession Scholarship, commissioned as Ensign before dental school started and was promoted to Lieutenant upon graduation from dental school.
While serving as a Dental Officer in the U.S. Navy, I completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program that is accredited and recognized by the American Dental Association. After my residency, I served as Department Head and Dental Officer onboard the USS Dubuque, LPD-8 and finished my naval career at Naval Medical Center San Diego.
During my six years of active duty, I was promoted to Lieutenant Commander, qualified as a Surface Warfare Medical Dental Officer, and was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal, the National Defense medal, and the Global War on Terrorism medal. I am a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Northern California Dental Society.
My wife, Hyunjung and I moved to Chico, CA in July 2009. Hyunjung is a member of the faculty at CSU Chico. My wife and I feel blessed to be able to serve Chico, California. We spend our days happily raising our son, Dylan - he's 6 now. My passions are cooking and playing fantasy football.
