Dr. Jared Roberts is a Washington native and completed a Bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University–Idaho.

Dr. Jared and his family were thrilled to move back to the beautiful Pacific NorthWest and settled in the Olympic Peninsula. When he isn’t at the dental office he can be found playing games with his family, taking his kids mountain biking, or enjoying family ski trips to the slopes. He is always ready to go explore nature, play on the water or snow, and continue to explore everything the Peninsula has to offer.

Dr. Dansie - Pediatric Dentist - Gig Harbor

Dr. Brian Dansie, DDS, MS

Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Dansie, a board-certified pediatric dentist, grew up in a small town in rural Utah. He attended dental school at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio – Go Buckeyes! After realizing that pediatric dentistry was his favorite part of his dental education, he completed a 2-year pediatric dental residency at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and a master’s degree at Ohio State focusing on the oral health of premature infants and children with special needs.

He was raised hiking, camping, and four-wheeling all over the Rocky Mountains. He enjoys the great outdoors and getting some fresh air in nature. He played basketball and football growing up and still coaches his kids in basketball, baseball, football, and soccer. Dr. Brian and his wife, Rachel relocated to the Pacific Northwest from California with their three children in 2015.

If you ask him why he went into pediatric dentistry, the answer is simple. He loves kids! His first rotation in dental school was in pediatrics, and he knew instantly that nothing else in dentistry would be as rewarding to him as working with children. He genuinely enjoys laughing and joking with kids all day. He believes that instilling confidence and self-worth in a child can start at the dental office with caring and compassionate pediatric dentists.
