Dr. Daniel Bekish has been practicing orthodontics in Fort Worth since 2005.  His practice has been listed as a Fort Worth “Top Doc” for the past 12 years.  Dr. Bekish has also been selected as a top Orthodontist by Fort Worth Mom’s Magazine.

 

Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Dr. Bekish completed his undergraduate degree as well as his dental school training in Pennsylvania.  After graduating first in his dental school class, Dr. Bekish moved to Texas to complete his orthodontic residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.  He loves to say that “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as quickly as I could”!  After specializing in Orthodontics, he moved to Fort Worth and started his orthodontic practice.

 

Dr. Bekish completed his board certification in 2007 making him one of only a handful of orthodontists in the DFW area to obtain board certification.  Dr. Bekish loves creating beautiful smiles as much as he enjoys sinking ten foot putts or dropping into fresh powder somewhere in Colorado.  In fact, if Dr. Bekish was unable to practice orthodontics, he would probably be a back country ski guide.   But for now, he is happy to be living in Fort Worth with his wife, Jennifer, and their three children: Paige, Matthew, and Will.

What else is on his list of favorites?  Philadelphia cheesesteaks.  Dislikes?  Clowns and sharks… ultimate nightmare:  a clown riding a shark.  Now for the serious stuff.
