Dr. Garon Larsen
Dr. Larsen has been serving north Utah County for over 20 years as a general dentist. He loves his career and gets great satisfaction from creating cosmetics, longevity, function and comfort for his patients.
“Over the years, I have acquired skills and knowledge that not many dentists have, which allows me to over-deliver to my patients and get the results they are looking for.” Dr. Larsen practices in a state-of-the-art building in Highland with the latest in comfort, technology and sterilization. “Everything about our office is patient-centered. From the 5-star certified receptionist answering the phones to the trained and certified hygiene department, my team is trained and prepared to take care of your needs.” Dr. Larsen has trained other doctors, organized a local study club on digital dentistry, and been a speaker at the Utah Dental Association annual meeting.
Dr. Larsen is a humanitarian and loves going on service missions to Central America. “Mission trips are the highlight of my career. It’s so satisfying to provide a service to someone that he or she could never receive under normal conditions, and which has such a big impact on his or her life. I love the people we serve with and the people we serve. I go on these trips to give, but I always come back better than I left; the boys and girls we see inspire me.”
Dr. Larsen grew up in Idaho on a potato farm. He enjoyed playing basketball in high school, riding motorcycles and working with his dad on the farm. He served a religious mission to Costa Rica, and he later met his wife at Utah State in ski class. “My wife is a much better skier than I am. Let’s just say she didn’t marry me for my skills on the slopes!” He received his dental degree from Tufts University in Boston. He and his wife have four wonderful children, two girls and two boys. In his spare time, he loves just about any outdoor activity and loves spending time with his family.
