Dr. Chandler Townsend, DDS
Dr. Townsend was homegrown in Utah in the East Millcreek and Holladay area. After completing a 2-year mission in Brazil, he attended the University of Utah where he met Katie, whom he wed in 2010. He attended Creighton University Dental School in Nebraska where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. During dental school, Dr. Townsend received awards for his knowledge and skill set in both endodontics and implantology.
While he and his family enjoyed their time in the plains of Nebraska, they were eager to return to their home in the mountains of Utah. It was here that Dr. Townsend served veterans at the George Wahlen VA in Salt Lake City. Here he worked alongside specialists and mentors while completing a General Practice Residency (GPR), training in advanced endodontics, prosthodontics, implant placement and IV sedation. He gained a great appreciation for those who have served and fought for America's freedom.
Currently a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of LDS Dentists, Academy of General Dentists and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Dr. Townsend is committed to lifelong learning and is constantly seeking to improve so he may better serve his patients.
Dr. Townsend and Katie now have two sons, Carter and Cooper. As a family they love doing things little boys love like riding bikes, reading books (especially on dinosaurs) and watching Carter's favorite movie, Finding Nemo, over and over again. Dr. Townsend and Katie also enjoy watching college football, attempting new culinary recipes and playing one of the games in their extensive board game collection.
Dr. Chandler Townsend is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Dr. Josh Hardin, DMD
Dr. Hardin was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. His younger years were spent living at the base of Mt. Hood, Oregon, taking full advantage of all the outdoors had to offer. He is passionate about sharing his love of nature and of teaching people. Dr. Hardin attended Portland State University to earn his Bachelor's Degree. He made sure to take classes to prepare him for the detailed art of Dentistry which included Advanced Jewelry Design. He had the opportunity to tie in education, teaching, and his desire to serve by becoming a counselor at Camp Kiwana's, an outdoor school for children and adults with special needs.
Dentistry is the career he has focused on from a very young age. He has obtained many years of wisdom passed down from his Father and Grandfather who are both in the Dental field. Hard work, fueled by passion allowed him to be one of the youngest in his Dental School Class at Oregon Health Sciences School of Dentistry, where he graduated near the top of his Class with Honors in 2016. He is engaged in extensive continuing educational programs, and is a member of The American Dental Association and The Academy of General Dentists.
He is happily married to his high school sweetheart, Sydney and their home is blessed with Emmett (5) and Rory (2), along with another baby due this year. At home, he enjoys playing outdoors with his family, gaming with Emmett, and teaching Rory new tricks on the trampoline. Both his sons are already very curious about Dentistry, and love "working"Ã‚Â on Dad's teeth whenever they get the chance. His commitment to serving his patients is a top priority, which is why he gives each patient his personal cell phone number in order to contact him in the case of an emergency. He looks forward to the opportunity to serve you!
Lindsay McPhee, RDH
Lindsay was born and raised in Salt Lake City, where she now lives with her husband and baby boy. She earned her Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene from Fortis College in 2015, and has enjoyed bringing health and confidence to her patients since then.
Lindsay loves dental hygiene because she gets to encounter new people that she otherwise wouldn't be able to meet and she enjoys the opportunity to serve them. She thinks that everyone deserves to love their smile and not be afraid to laugh during life's greatest moments.
