Meet Dr. David Patch, a sedation and implant dentist in Salt Lake City

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. He continued to earn his DDS from Opens new tab to official websiteDalhousie University in NS, Canada, which has been preparing dental graduates for more than 100 years.

What made him chose dentistry?

The turning point in his life was during a scouting trip. His father, also a dentist, attended to the needs of a man who had been kicked in the mouth by a horse. Witnessing this simple act instilled a deep desire in Dr. Patch to help others relieve their pain. This became his “why” to practice dentistry.

Ensuring patient comfort, safety, and providing the highest standard of care is Dr. Patch’s primary concern. These are key reasons why Dr. Patch chose to complete a one year General Practice Residency at the University of Utah. Additionally, he obtained certification in advanced cardiac life support, safe sedation, and advanced implant placement.

Dr. Patch feels it is essential to stay up to date on continuing education and the latest techniques to best serve his patients. He loves to see his patients smile and values the relationship he creates with everyone he treats.

To help him stay at the forefront of dentistry, he maintains membership with the Opens new tab to American Dental Association websiteAmerican Dental Association, Opens new tab to Utah Dental Association websiteUtah Dental Association, and Opens new tab to Academy of LDS Dentists websiteAcademy of LDS Dentists.

As a restorative and cosmetic dentist in Salt Lake City, Dr. Patch treatments will include:

And should you ever encounter a dental emergency, Dr. Patch is only one call away to help you with emergency dental care in Utah.

Outside of the office

Dr. Patch and his wife, Chelsea, live in Sandy with their two children (one boy and one girl).

In his spare time, Dr. Patch enjoys the simple things in life, such as spending time with his family, playing the guitar, being outdoors, camping, and hiking. He is also an avid soccer and hockey player and enjoys most sports.

And of course, watching his children grow is his passion in life.
