With a Bachelors degree from ISU and an MBA from the University of Utah, Dr Dixon graduated from Virginia CommonWealth University's School of Dentistry in 2008 and has been practicing in the Magic Valley since then. Working towards Fellowship in the American General Dentistry Association, Dr Dixon continually seeks out opportunities in Continuing Education, focusing on Restorative Dentistry, Dental Implants, Sedation Dentistry, and Sleep Science. Four boys and one little girl and darling wife occupy Dr Dixon's time when he is away from the office and he loves every minute of it.
I am proud to call the Magic Valley my home having grown up here. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from BYU and then went on to obtain my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 1997. My wife and I have 4 children. We strive to give my patients positive dental experiences. No one likes to have dental treatment done, but my goal is that nobody fears having dental treatment completed. We like to have patients for life because of the trust and quality care they are receiving.
I am a native of Idaho and received my training at Indiana University School of Dentistry. I then completed a residency in general dentistry at FT Lewis, WA and began practicing in the U.S Army for the next 5 years while spending a year deployed to Iraq taking care of the troops. I was eager to return home to Idaho and the mountains after my military service and am very grateful that my wife Andrea and our three children are part of the Twin Falls community and Sawtooth Dental. I have a passion for providing quality dental care in a kind and comfortable manner and desire to treat each patient as if they were a member of the family.
