About Daniel Gill
Dr. Gill was raised in New Hampshire and was interested from an early age in the workings of the human body and how disease or injury affects people physically and mentally. Going into medicine was an obvious choice for him. He became hooked on oral surgery when he found himself deeply fascinated and in awe of his UCLA dental professors’ lectures on the depth of skill required in the oral and maxillofacial surgery profession, and how the combined expertise of medicine and dentistry in oral surgery can completely restore form and function and change lives for the better.
Dr. Gill was a student of Drs. Lieblich and Fletcher at the University of Connecticut during his residency and was thrilled when the doctors asked him to join Avon Oral, Facial and Implant Surgery. The practice is well known in the community and at the university for its excellent patient-focused care and safe, professional environment. Dr. Gill would like his patients to know that listening to their needs is his priority — he addresses his patients’ concerns directly so that they are completely comfortable with their treatment plan before any work begins. Finally, he would like to express that he truly loves his work — there is nothing more fulfilling to him than restoring smiles with a beautiful dental implant or multiple implants to replace missing or problematic teeth.
In addition to his work at the practice, Dr. Gill has recently co-authored a book chapter with Dr. Lieblich in the Atlas of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America on “Orthodontic Skeletal Anchorage Applications.” Dr. Gill is an active member of the Hartford Hospital and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Maxillofacial and Craniofacial Trauma teams, where he helps people who have sustained severe injuries to obtain an optimal functional and cosmetic result.
Dr. Daniel Gill earned a BA in economics with distinction and a minor in biology from the University of Virginia in 2000. He attended UCLA School of Dentistry, graduating cum laude with a DDS degree in 2007. Dr. Gill earned his MD degree at the University of Connecticut in 2010.
Throughout his training, Dr. Gill has been the recipient of several academic honors and scholarships. He received the AAOMS Dental Implant Student Award in 2007, as well as the Horace Wells Senior Student Award for outstanding achievement in the field of dental anesthesiology.
He completed his final year in the six-year University of Connecticut integrated oral and maxillofacial surgery residency program in June 2013, which includes two years of general surgery residency.
Consistent with our practice philosophy, Dr. Gill maintains a strong dual interest in clinical practice and academic involvement. He completed the rigorous examination process to become a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon in 2016.
