My work as a dentist is very fulfilling, both personally and professionally. It’s rewarding when I can help a patient overcome his or her anxiety and make the dental experience a positive one. My life has been very blessed by being able to meet so many unique individuals each day. It always amazes me how much gratitude and appreciation I receive when I help people overcome a challenge or concern to their oral health.
I chose to become a dentist because I’m passionate about helping others feel and look their best. Whether they are here for a simple checkup and exam, or are in need of advanced restorative care, each visit affords me the opportunity to make a positive difference in their lives. This responsibility is something I do not take lightly.
Education and continuing education
Undergraduate degree - Brigham Young University / University of Utah
Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of the Pacific
I enjoy advancing my knowledge of dentistry, because it helps me retain my excitement about the many ways I can help others live happy, healthy lives. I attend continuing education courses on a regular basis on dental implants, gum surgery, and the latest in dental technologies to help me provide the most current and up-to-date treatment and services for my patients.
When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my wife Kelti and our children, Benjamin, Emme, and Brigham, especially if we’re in the great outdoors. I also enjoy cooking, playing soccer, and following my teams, the Utah Jazz and Real Salt Lake.
My passion is making the world that my children and their children will someday inherit a better place to live. I volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America, and serve as a youth basketball and soccer coach. The communities we live in wouldn’t be such great places to raise a family if not for the hours of generous service and dedication given by volunteers. I find that giving my time to these activities keeps me connected to others in my community.
