SINCE WE HAVE such great staff members here at VIP Dream Smiles, we would like to share a little bit about them with our amazing patients! Up first is Dr. Shad.

Where are you originally from?

“I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, and raised in Roy, Utah.”

Married? Children?

“I married the love of my life Martha in 1997 and we have since had 5 amazing kids, Trevor, Annabelle, Tylor, Traegor and Thatchor.”

What made you decide that you want to become a dentist?

“Well, I have had a desire to become a dentist since I was little; I wanted to follow in my dad’s footsteps! Then I decided to try roofing for a little while and that just further confirmed my passion for dentistry. I missed it!”

Do you have an unusual hobby or interest?

“I play and coach soccer (the BEST sport EVER)! We also have family headstand contests which are pretty awesome.”

What is your favorite color Dr. Shad?


What is something about you that most people don’t know?

“I am ashamed to admit that I have a cavity… I better get into the dentist and get that taken care of!”

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

“I would be a tortoise, then I would never be homeless!”

Most embarrassing moment?

“Dang, I thought I could avoid this one! Alright, my most embarrassing moment is when I dressed up like the incredible Hulk, complete with cut-off jeans and green food coloring.”

If you were given the opportunity to spend 48 hours with absolutely anyone (living or dead), who would you spend it with and what would you do?

“I would spend that time with my amazing wife Martha. I would jet her off to Europe and give her the whole romantic European experience through a river cruise and castle tour.”

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

“Hmmm, that is such a tough one! It is going to have to be a toss up between a macho combo burrito and anything at Chuck-O-Rama!”

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

“I would love to fly!”

And the last and most important question Dr. Shad is, what do you enjoy most about being a dentist?

“There are so many things I could say right now because being a dentist is awesome! But I will have to say that I truly enjoy the interaction with people and enjoy seeing people overcome their fear of dentistry. It is so wonderful when we can help someone love their smile!”

Well folks, there is Dr. Shad in a nutshell! We sure enjoy having him around and we hope that you each get a chance to rub elbows with all of our awesome staff!
