Meet Dr. Daniel B. LaGrua

For Problem-Solving and Quality Care

Daniel LaGrua’s passion for solving problems and helping others inspired him to pursue a career in dentistry. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in business administration from McDaniel College, he returned to his home state of New Jersey to fulfill his science prerequisites at Rowan College. Soon after, Dr. LaGrua earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia.

Dr. LaGrua started his dental career in the U.S. Army, where he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in July 2000 at Fort Jackson, SC. He then spent two years at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and was deployed to Bosnia Herzegovina with the Stabilization Forces in the former Yugoslavia.

In 2009, Dr. LaGrua earned his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), becoming one of only 7 percent of dentists who have achieved this honor. Dr. LaGrua has also completed training through the Misch International Implant Institute and is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Dr. LaGrua enjoys traveling and dining out with his wife Cathy and their two children. His love for travel and adventure has led to his most recent accomplishment of earning his pilot’s license.

Dear Valued Patients,

We will continue implementing the recommendations of the ADA (American Dental Association) and the VDA (Virginia Dental Association) and the CDC regarding COVID 19. To continue to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID 19, we kindly ask that if you have an upcoming dental appointment that you follow these COVID 19 guidelines:

  • Please reschedule your dental appointment should you have any symptoms of COVID 19 (fever, fatigue, dry cough, difficulty breathing, aches & pains, sore throat, loss of sense of smell or taste).
  • Please refrain from bringing additional individuals with you to your appointment.
  • Please wear a mask.
  • Please keep a safe distance from others when possible.

In the interest of patient safety, we would like to share some of our safety measures practiced in our office. N95 Masks, protective face shields, and gloves will continue to be worn by providers.
Daily temperature monitoring of all staff, including our front desk support, assistants, hygienists, and doctors. Every operatory is wiped down with disinfectant between every patient.
