Dr. Townsend was homegrown in Utah in the East Millcreek and Holladay area. After completing a 2-year mission in Brazil, he attended the University of Utah where he met Katie, whom he wed in 2010. He attended Creighton University Dental School in Nebraska where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. During dental school, Dr. Townsend received awards for his knowledge and skill set in both endodontics and implantology.
While he and his family enjoyed their time in the plains of Nebraska, they were eager to return to their home in the mountains of Utah. It was here that Dr. Townsend served veterans at the George Wahlen VA in Salt Lake City. Here he worked alongside specialists and mentors while completing a General Practice Residency (GPR), training in advanced endodontics, prosthodontics, implant placement and IV sedation. He gained a great appreciation for those who have served and fought for America's freedom.
Currently a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of LDS Dentists, Academy of General Dentists and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Dr. Townsend is committed to lifelong learning and is constantly seeking to improve so he may better serve his patients.
Dr. Townsend and Katie now have two sons, Carter and Cooper. As a family they love doing things little boys love like riding bikes, reading books (especially on dinosaurs) and watching Carter's favorite movie, Finding Nemo, over and over again. Dr. Townsend and Katie also enjoy watching college football, attempting new culinary recipes and playing one of the games in their extensive board game collection.
