Michael M Daly, DDS

Dr. Michael Daly was born and raised in Westchester County, NY. He developed an interest in dentistry while obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree at Stonehill College in Easton, MA. There he interned with an oral surgeon, and quickly realized the satisfaction of working with patients and restoring oral function and esthetics.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from The University at Buffalo, School of Dental Medicine, he developed a genuine love for Western, NY. He now resides in Webster, NY with his wife, Kayleigh, and their dog, Lily.

Dr. Daly believes patient comfort and satisfaction are the most important facets in dentistry. In an effort to provide better care for his patients, he received additional clinical training at the Veterans Hospital in Providence, RI. There he expanded his understanding of multiple dental specialties.

Dr. Daly’s thorough yet conservative approach to patient care makes him a wonderful addition to our practice. He looks forward to meeting all existing and new patients.
