Outside the Office

Dr. Burton and his wife, Cindy, shared a dream to return to the Utah Valley, a place they call home. They were able to fulfill that dream in 2003, when Dr. Burton started practicing with Utah Valley Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The two have four active sons who love the outdoors just as much as their parents do. The family enjoys cycling, scuba diving, Jeeping, and exploring all corners of the Beehive State.
