Dr. Daniel Ardelean was born in Romania and immigrated to the United States in 1991. His mother, Dr. Florica Ardelean, was a dentist in Romania. It wasn’t long before Dr. Ardelean found that he and his mother shared a love for working with their hands.
He attended Wayne State University, where he graduated magna cum laude with honors and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in biological sciences. Even though Dr. Ardelean was accepted into medical school, he chose to attend dental school instead and graduated from University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry in 2008.
In 2009, Dr. Ardelean began a surgical residency at the Midwest Implant Institute in Columbus, OH. Soon after, he completed a residency at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine where he studied bone grafting, gum grafting, and sinus lifts.
He began his career working as an associate dentist for his mother in 2008. He then worked at Clairpointe Family Dental in St. Clair Shores, MI before arriving here at Amber Dental. Dr. Ardelean has continued to stay up to date with the latest dental training and tools, taking additional courses through Dawson’s Academy in occlusion and full-mouth reconstruction and attending symposiums at the Midwest Implant Institute. He is a Lumineers Preferred Provider, a Perio Protect provider, and has extensive training in Invisalign. Besides his thorough training, Dr. Ardelean is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of General Dentistry, and the Macomb Dental Society.
“Dr. Dan,” as he is known to most of his patients, understands the value of getting to know patients as real people, not just numbers, and enjoys serving his patients. Not only does he love to create beautiful smiles for his patients, he is also very active internationally, teaching dentists in numerous countries the highest level of care they can provide with dental technology. He also takes a few weeks every year to give back to several third-world countries by leading free medical and dental mobile clinics and serving the underprivileged. Dr. Dan has been happily married to Cornelia Ardelean for the past eight years. She also works in the dental field as a licensed dental hygienist. When not at our Sterling Heights, MI office, Dr. Dan loves to travel with his wife and son Samuel.
