Meet Your Dentists in Salt Lake City
Jonathan G. Campbell, DDS, FAGD
‘‘“I'm confident we can help you. I've helped thousands of patients, many with problems like yours and worse. We've been successful with them. Together, we came up with a solution that looked and felt great.”
Raised in Salt Lake City, UT, Dr. Jonathan Campbell currently lives in Holladay. He is married to Melanie, and together they have five kids (three girls and two boys). His father was a dentist, and they practiced side by side for 13 years. His youngest sister Katie has also followed in her father’s footsteps and is a dental hygienist at Legacy Dental.
Dr. Campbell has always enjoyed working with his hands and has a strong desire to help people. He knew the health profession was right for him and, after working with his dad for a summer, he discovered dentistry was the perfect fit.
He loved seeing how his dad helped alleviate pain and improved people’s smiles. In fact, that is Dr. Campbell’s favorite part of his job as a Salt Lake City dentist, seeing the happy tears and smiles of a patient who thought they were beyond help.
This compassion reflects his desire to help all patients. He is committed to providing the best possible care, which has led him to be a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of the office, Dr. Campbell enjoys spending time with his family on vacation. At home, he is busy supporting his kids, with dance, sports, and school. Getting away with his family is the best. Our doctor also enjoys being in the outdoors, exercising, coaching soccer, and his church service.
David Patch, DDS
‘‘"Communication, in my opinion is paramount. I know by working together we can find a solution to any problem. It’s my job to listen and help you come up with the right treatment that is specifically tailored for your situation."
Dr. Patch was raised in Logan, Utah. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Business at Utah State University where he met his wife Chelsea and continued on to earn his DDS from Dalhousie University in NS, Canada, which has been preparing dental graduates for more than 100 years. They now currently live in Sandy with their two children (one boy and one girl).
The turning point in his life was during a scouting trip while watching his father, also a dentist, attend to the needs of a man who had been kicked in the mouth by a horse. This simple act instilled a deep desire in Dr. Patch to help others relieve their pain and became his “why” to practice dentistry.
In his spare time, Dr. Patch enjoys the simple things in life such as spending time with his family, playing the guitar, and being outdoors camping and hiking. He is an avid soccer and hockey player and enjoys most sports. Watching his children grow is his passion in life.
LaMont E. Hesselgesser, DDS
‘‘"My job as a dentist is to diagnose and treat dental disease. There is usually more than one way to fix a problem. I try to inform the patients and help them decide what they want to do."
Dr. Hesselgesser was born in Provo, Utah and is now married to Maria, who is Brazilian. Together, they have two grown children and are now grandparents.
Our doctor lived in both Utah and Nevada when he was growing up. He spent his teenage years in Weber County, where he attended Weber State University. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French.
He then found his passion for dentistry and attended dental school in Virginia at MCV-VCU. He enjoys dental care as he can combine art and science to help his patients feel better and smile more.
Since becoming a Salt Lake City dentist, Dr. Hesselgesser has worked at various practices and even had his own practice from 1995 to 2018 in Pleasant View, UT. Since 2014 he has worked as an associate dentist at Legacy Dental, and we feel lucky to have him.
Away from the office, our dentist likes to cook, look into genealogy, garden, and travel. He also enjoys spending time with his family.
Brad Stewart, DDS
‘‘“We are happy you came in today. Let’s see what we can do to help you with your teeth.”
Originally from Evansville, IN, Dr. Stewart is married with three kids (two boys and a girl). He got into dentistry as he wanted to serve in healthcare and enjoys working with his hands.
Dr. Stewart received his Bachelors in Biology from Brigham Young University and went on to earn his DDS from Indiana University. He has continued to develop his skills as a member of the American Dental Association and the Utah Dental Association.
The best part of his job is helping people feel good about themselves and their smiles. Dr. Brad Stewart brings his caring and understanding nature to every visit as he strives to get you out any pain.
In his free time, our dentist in Salt Lake City enjoys reading, hiking, mountain biking, watching soccer, photography, and playing sports with his kids.

Dr. Galen V. Campbell had been practicing dentistry since 1976, in Salt Lake City. He continued to be a student of dentistry, keeping up to date on the latest and best techniques and materials. He had received his fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, an award given for completion of 500 hours of continuing education and passing a rigorous exam. He loved his patients, and they loved him. We miss him and aim to continue the tradition he started of providing excellent care, with kindness, knowledge, and skill.
Great staff! Very accommodating and helpful. Dr. Campbell is phenomenal! He is very efficient, caring, and professional! I highly recommend Legacy Dental!
