Wednesday, July 18, 2018 10:13 AM

Dr. Dan Yeager has joined Dr. Preston Knight's dental practices in Bayfield and Durango to provide services and improve access to dental care.

Originally from La Plata County, Yeager is a biochemistry graduate from Fort Lewis College and an honors graduate from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

His education provided a broad array of clinical experiences, which helps him to diagnose and treat patients in all facets of dentistry. His addition to the practice will allow the practice to offer more days than are currently available in the Durango and Bayfield offices.

Yeager is an outdoors enthusiast who loves to run long races and is excited to return home and start his career.

Yeager is married to Jessica, a dental hygienist who also works at the practice.

They have a son, Boyd, who entertains them at home.

The dental practices are located in Durango and Bayfield.

Appointments are available by calling 247-4743 in Durango and 884-9306 in Bayfield.
