Meet Oral Surgeon Dr. Clifton
Dr. Trent Clifton was born in Arizona and later moved to Utah. Growing up in Utah, he learned to love the outdoors, including skiing, camping, and horseback riding. He met his wife, Emily, while working on her dad’s farm; they have 5 children ranging from 1 year old to 11 years old. Trent has worked with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community for 18 years, including serving a mission for his church for 2 years in California speaking American Sign Language.
Dr. Clifton graduated with a BS in Biology from BYU and then attended the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health, where he earned his DMD. He and his family then moved to Lexington, Kentucky, where he graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine with a MD and where he finished his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency.
Trent enjoys treating children and uses the full scope of his training to alleviate their anxieties. Dr. Clifton is experienced with replacing missing teeth with implant-supported dentures. In addition to routine dentoalveolar surgery and dental implants, he has experience treating patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction, as well as orthognathic surgery, facial trauma, and skin cancer.
When he’s not in the office or treating patients, Trent can be found building or renovating something, gardening, camping, and photographing the small details of life.
