Person of the Week: 6/27
Born in Queens, New York, at six years old, Dr. Danielle Greene already knew that she wanted to become a dentist. Raised by her loving grandparents, she was constantly encouraged to focus on her studies and become the best she could be. Her grandfather, a fireman, and her grandmother, a corrections officer, always steered her in the right direction. They instilled in her the importance of getting a firm foundation through education so she could have more opportunities in life than they had experienced for themselves.
Earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees with honors in Physics (which included a NASA Fellowship) at Morgan State University, in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Greene was well on her way to fulfilling her dream. She went on to graduate with honors from the University of Maryland Dental School. In addition, she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and had a rare opportunity to live and study in New Zealand at the University of Waikato. This was a rich and rewarding experience for her.
Dr. Danielle Greene’s perseverance eventually led her to become a pioneer in the dental industry. A leading African-American woman in the field, Dr. Greene’s success also included owning an expanding, client-focused practice and developing a line of oral care products in Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr. Greene’s commitment to her clients’ oral health, educating the public and building self-esteem and general well-being resulted in her latest professional creation, “Kissable”, a designer line of oral care products. Initially available only to Dr. Greene’s private dental clients, Kissable is now being made available for sale directly to the general public.
After having a business partnership with Dr. Danielle Greene, president of Fabulous Smiles of Atlanta, for over 10 years, People You Need to Know is proud to salute her as our Person of the Week.
