Dr. Chris Bates - DMD

Just wanted to give a 5-star rating to your team (TCD) and particularly Dr. Chris Bates. Best dentist visit I have ever had!"
~ James

Hi, I am Dr. Chris Bates, I was born and raised locally here in Highland, Utah.  After graduating from American Fork High School, I received a scholarship to play collegiate basketball at Brigham Young University-Hawaii.  Following my first year of college, I was called to serve a two-year mission in Germany for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I returned to Hawaii following my mission to complete my education, graduating with a degree in Biology.   

Soon thereafter I started my dental education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA where I earned my DMD degree.  I then went on to complete a two-year General Practice Residency (GPR) at the University of Texas Health Science Center-San Antonio.  

I spent the last 13 years in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I had my own private practice but felt the need and desire to move back home to Utah to be near family.   

I believe in treating everyone with the utmost respect and providing a safe environment for comfortable and quality dentistry.  I continue to learn and stay on top of the latest technology and techniques functional dentistry has to offer by taking continuing education (CE) courses every year. 

When not in the office you can find me spending time with my beautiful wife and son.
