Meet the Team at Serene Dentistry of North Salt Lake
Dr. Will Bates
“My interest in dentistry started when I was in high school. I was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in me fracturing multiple front teeth. I was also in a lot of pain and embarrassed about my smile. I was very blessed to find a dentist who was willing to come in extra early and do all he could to get me out of pain and fix my smile. This experience influenced me to pursue a career in dentistry where I could help someone else in the same way that my dentist helped me.”
