Born and raised in Logan, Dr. Porter was instilled with a deep love for the Valley and has become an unparalleled Utah State Aggie supporter. Following graduation from Sky View High School, he received his bachelor's degree from USU and headed out West to pursue his passion of dentistry. He earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, not only graduating with honors, but he was also placed on the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor List, a national dental honor fraternity that recognizes the top 10 percent of dental graduates based on overall academic achievement and professional development. Then, after graduating from dental school, he continued his education at Idaho State University, completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. Harboring the desire to pass on this valuable experience, he has participated as an adjunct faculty member in teaching clinical dentistry.
Through his dedication to education and invaluable experiences, he has become proficient in all areas of dentistry including general family care, routine restorative, implants, crown, bridges, root canals, dentures, teeth whitening, full-mouth reconstruction, smile makeovers, veneers, splint therapy, bone grafting, wisdom tooth extractions, and periodontal surgeries. He is also trained and licensed to offer intravenous and oral sedation for anxious patients, extensive treatment, and/or lengthy appointments.
As much as he loves dentistry, Dr. Porter adores his family even more. Not only is he kept busy with his four active kids and his equally beautiful and ambitious wife, he is surrounded with a legacy of Cache Valley friends and family members. When not playing with his children or getting his hands dirty with his yard, Dr. Porter enjoys playing golf, motorcycling, traveling, reading, and, of course, watching Aggie Athletics. His love of Cache Valley envelopes his practice which is evident in his unparalleled dentistry. He is fully dedicated to the comfort and happiness of his patients by providing the highest quality dentistry possible in an amiable and conscientious atmosphere.
