Thomas Page, DDS
I was born during dad’s dental school years. In 1966, he graduated and we moved back to Utah to settle in Rose Park. It was a wonderful time and great place to grow up. Later Dad moved us and his practice to Bountiful. I graduated from Bountiful High school in 1980 and attended BYU for college. After attending the first year, I served an LDS mission in Alberta Canada. I returned to finish my education at BYU and met my wife Marlene Smith, from Rexburg Idaho. We were married in 1985 and have had 35 wonderful years together. We also had three sons and two daughters, but our family was not complete until we went to Kazakhstan and adopted our fourth son. We now have five grandchildren that we love and cherish.
My dental education took us to Omaha, Nebraska and Creighton Dental School. Upon graduation we left for three years to serve in the United States Air Force at Lakenheath base in England. There I was able to do rounds with all the specialist, hospital dentistry, surgical assistance in war time, and learned how to do forensic dentistry. I returned to Bountiful and joined my dad where we worked together for 12 great years. Since then my brother Rob and I have kept the Page Family Dentistry tradition alive.
I love all aspects of dentistry. From meeting new people to doing extractions, fillings, crowns, braces and implants. It has made for a very enjoyable career, but mostly I have enjoyed the people I serve. They have become an “extended family” that has filled my life with friendship and joy.
Recently I accepted an opportunity to go to the Philippines and continue dental work there. We will be doing what we can to help those in need here. As much as we miss friends and family, we are having a wonderful experience! We will be back to Page Family Dentistry in September of 2021.
