Our Dental Team
M. Danielle Funny, D.D.S.
Funny began her career in pediatric dentistry by treating
patients in both public health and private practice before joining
the University Pediatric Dentistry team in 2009. A
native of Elmsford, NY, she has grown to love the pace and weather
in Charlotte! Dr. Funny was interested in science and in
health-related issues even as a child-hoping to pursue a career in
healthcare and make a positive impact on her community. Her
first strides toward becoming a healthcare professional were at
Howard University in Washington, DC. At Howard, she earned a
Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry before returning to New York
to further her studies at New York University where she earned a
Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree in 2006.
As a dental student and later as a resident, she was very active in local and international dental outreaches. Her outreach interests afforded her opportunities to travel to Jamaica and the Dominican Republic where she provided much needed dental care to adults and children in underserved areas. It was through these outreach ventures and her desire to positively impact her community that she focused her career path on pediatric dentistry. Dr. Funny continues to provide treatment to the underserved locally by providing care through the Ada Jenkins Dental Clinic and North Carolina Missions of Mercy clinics.
Dr. Funny currently holds memberships in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, North Carolina Association of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association and National Dental Association. She has also earned the distinction of becoming a fellow of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. When she's not treating patients, Dr. Funny enjoys traveling, volunteering and spending time with her husband, family and friends.
