Meet Dr. Tylka
Dr. Daniel Tylka was raised in the Midwest, moving around Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota before settling down in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1995. He attended Lincoln East High School where he enjoyed wrestling and running on both the cross country and track and field teams. He graduated high school in 2001 and pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln while competing for the Huskers in the pole vault. After completing his undergraduate degree in 2006, Dr. Tylka attended the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry earning his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2010 with High Distinction.
Following dental school, Dr. Tylka accepted a position at the University of Louisville’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program, which is considered by many to be one of the top tier programs in the country. While in Louisville, he had the fortune to train under two leaders in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. George Kushner and Dr. Brian Alpert. Dr. Tylka also attended medical school while in residency, earning his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 2013.
During his training Dr. Tylka gained extensive experience in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. This included dentoalveolar surgery, IV sedation and general anesthesia, complex bone grafting and dental implants, facial trauma ad reconstruction, pathology, and orthognathic surgery.
After completing residency in 2016 the Tylka’s made the decision to move back to Lincoln, Nebraska due to the great small town atmosphere and Midwest values they had come to love while being part of the “Big Red Nation.” Dr. Tylka has been married to his wife Meghan, who he met in dental school, since 2014. Together they have an energetic and happy son named Cole. Outside of work, the Tylka’s enjoy the outdoors, going on walks with the family dogs, supporting Husker athletics, and spending time with family and friends.
