About Dr. Shalkey (York, Pennsylvania Dentist)

Daniel A. Shalkey, DDS graduated from SUNY Albany in 1975 and University of Buffalo Dental School in 1979. Completing a one year General Practice Residency in San Antonio TX in 1980, he entered the USAF Dental Corps in 1980 and served for the next 15 years in seven different active duty tours. In 1982 Dr. Shalkey was very lucky to marry his wife Marie.

During active duty he was fortunate to complete two additional years of formal post graduate training in all phases of dentistry and was awarded board certification by the Federal Services Board of General Dentistry in 1993. After retirement from the USAF Dental Corps in 1995 Dr. Shalkey moved to York, Pennsylvania with his family of six and started his general dental practice in 1996.

Three years of formal postgraduate dental education is the reason Dr. Shalkey can do such a wide range of dental procedures.

Dentist in York, Pennsylvania and in the Dominican Republic!

Dr. Shalkey and wife Marie doing dental work at a mission in the Dominican Republic

For the past five years Marie and I have been traveling to a mountain village in the central mountains of the Dominican Republic. We have been part of a larger Catholic mission from the Diocese of Orlando Mission office. We have gone once a year for a week to do restorative dentistry on a population of elementary and middle school children. For each trip we paid our air fare, a fee to the mission office for our room and board, and provided all the instruments and supplies needed for the mission.

About the Dominican Republic

A map of the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola

The Dominican Republic is a nation on the island of Hispaniola, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region. The western three-eighths of the island is occupied by the nation of Haiti, making Hispaniola one of two Caribbean islands, along with Saint Martin, that are shared by two countries.

Both by area and population, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba), with 48,445 square kilometres (18,705 sq mi) and an estimated 10 million people, one million of which live in the capital city, Santo Domingo.
