Dr. Danny Bass was raised in Sarasota, FL where he attended Pine View School for the Gifted from 2nd grade through high school. While living in Sarasota, Dr. Danny Bass had orthodontic treatment that changed his life and inspired him to pursue a career in Orthodontics because he wanted to help change the lives of others as well. After graduating from high school, Dr. Danny Bass donned the Orange and Blue colors at the University of Florida on a journey towards a bachelors degree in business administration. He enjoyed the University of Florida so much that after graduating with a bachelors degree, he decided to stay for another four years to complete dental school. He was surely glad that he stayed and got to witness all of the Gator national championship victories! After graduating at the top of his UF dental school class and getting married to his beautiful sweetheart all in the same weekend, he was prepared and excited to stay another three years at the University of Florida to complete his post-doctorate training in the dental specialty of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. After an amazing eleven years at the University of Florida, he became a husband, father of a beautiful little princess, and an Orthodontic Specialist. He relocated from Gainesville with his family down to Wellington to be close to his wife’s family who has lived in this wonderful hometown for the last twenty years. His wife Kelly attended New Horizons Elementary School, Landings Middle School, and Wellington High School. Since moving back to Wellington in 2012, Dr. Danny Bass and Kelly started Family Orthodontics of Wellington from the ground up, were blessed with their precious son in the summer of 2013, and have enjoyed raising their beautiful children while working hard to make Family Orthodontics of Wellington the special place that it is!
Dr. Danny Bass has shown passion and excellence in his work, as demonstrated by the fact that he was awarded many distinguished honors, including the Orthodontics Clinical Achievement award, the American Association of Orthodontists Exceptional Interest award, the International College of Dentists Student Leadership award, induction into the OKU National Dental Honor Society, and earning first place in the University of Florida Spring Synergy Research Competition. Dr. Danny Bass is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Southern Association of Orthodontists, Florida Association of Orthodontists, and the American Dental Association.
