Welcome to Canyon Gate Dental. I’m Dr. Payne and I’ve been practicing dentistry for nearly 30 years. I grew up in Chicago and also lived in Southern California. I went to Brigham Young University for my undergraduate degree and attended dental school at the University of Southern California. I had a practice in Los angeles for 12 years before moving to Orem. I started the Canyon Gate Dental practice nearly 17 years ago and absolutely love Utah. I love being a dentist and firmly believe in going the extra mile for patients so that their visit in our office is as comfortable as possible. I have been married to my wonderful wife Val for 34 years. I love practicing the piano, running, playing outdoors, and spending time with my family of 6 children (all married to wonderful people) and 13 grandchildren.
