Dane T. Griggs, DDS
Growing up in Torrington, I watched my dad, Dr. Lance Griggs, practice dentistry, and I knew at a young age that I wanted to follow in his footsteps. I discovered my passion for dentistry early on, as I was always interested in dental and patient health care. I look up to my dad, not only as a father, but also as a dentist. I feel proud to be a third generation dentist and appreciate the practice my dad and grandfather, Dr. James Griggs, have established in this great community.
After graduating from Torrington High School in 2007, I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and received a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2011. I then graduated with my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 2015. I am honored to be a UNMC of Dentistry alumnus, and know I received one of the best educations possible for general dentistry, the latest technology advancements and patient care. I continue to further my education in all aspects of dentistry, especially implantology. I take pleasure in working to attain the best dental health care plan for each of my patients and especially enjoy working with children.
My wife Megan and I met in college and married in July 2013. Megan graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in journalism, advertising and graphic design. Megan is from the small town of Clearwater, Nebraska. Growing up as a farmer’s daughter, she appreciates being back in the small town life. We had our daughter, Josie, in March 2015; our son, James, in May 2017; and our second son, Grant, in August 2021. Becoming a dad has been some of the best moments in my life. As for me, I love spending time with family and friends, fly fishing, hunting and almost any other outdoor activity. My family and I love Torrington and serving the our community.
