Daniel B. Moore, DO
Dr. Moore has experienced cranial osteopathy since his mother, Hannah Bailey (Moore), DO, FAAO began treating him when he was twelve hours old. During Christmas vacation in his senior year at Bucknell University, she invited him into her office to begin his formal palpatory education. By summer, she had taught him to feel cranial movement.

As a freshman at KCOM in 1969, Dan felt he needed OMT, including cranial, and was referred to Herbert C. Miller, DO, FAAO, where he experienced the cranial concept applied to the entire body. When offered a sophomore elective of either reading EKG’s or studying with Dr. Miller, he chose the latter. (He remaind Dr. Miller’s patient, student, and friend until Dr. Miller’s passing in 2012.) Also while at Kirksville, he was invited to join a Friday afternoon study group by a classmate, Anne Laughlin, with her father, George Andrew Laughlin, DO. This group continued to meet for the remainder of their years at Kirksville and it was Dr. Laughlin who encouraged and made it possible for Anne, Dan and two other of their classmates to take their first SCTF Basic Course in May, 1973. During the course, Dr. Laughlin also made possible a couple of evening sessions with Rollin Becker, DO. Around this time, Dan and his mother also attended a session of the Lippincott study group at the Lippincott’s home in Moorestown, NJ. Following internship at Saginaw Osteopathic Hospital, he moved to Versailles, KY to begin an osteopathic general practice and has been there ever since.

Dr. Moore began his teaching association with the SCTF as an table trainer in training with the 1980 SCTF Basic Course at WVSOM and has missed only two courses since. Three years later, he was invited to become an SCTF board member and two years after that was elected secretary, an office he still holds.
