Dr. McDaniel was born and raised in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. After graduation, he continued his education at Campbell University, where he graduated with honors and a Bachelor of Science in biology and a minor in chemistry. In 2009 he began dental school at the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. While he was there, he completed an Oral Surgery and Dental Implant clerkship.
Growing up, Dr. McDaniel was always interested in medicine and science. This interest reached its peak upon first meeting his orthodontist. He loved the fact that the doctor was interactive with him, and he was impressed by the doctor’s ability to both diagnose and treat issues. These passions stayed with him and lead him to pursue a career in dentistry.
