Your Utah Dental Experts
At Apex Dental, we take great care to ensure that each of our patients is served by the best dental care experts in Utah. Every one of our doctors has years of experience performing a wide array of dental care procedures while utilizing the latest and greatest in dental care technology. While the Utah Dental Association requires that licensed dentists receive a minimum of 100 hours of continuing education per year, at Apex Dental our standard is more than double the legal requirement. Rather than simply providing your family with routine checkups and fillings, we go the extra mile by being able to provide a huge variety of complex dental care procedures under one roof. Our dentists receive expert technical training from acclaimed dental institutions, such as the WhiteCap Institute For Dental Implant Training, and DEKA Laser Technologies Inc. These frequent residencies and training programs result in broader treatment options for our patients, as well as access to the absolute cutting edge in dental care technology and techniques.
