Crayton R. Walker, DDS, MD

As a local to the area, I have been proudly serving this community for over 30 years. Since starting this oral surgery office in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1981, I have been able to help countless patients create healthier, more attractive smiles.

I am a graduate of Highland High School and the University of Utah, where I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in biology, graduating cum laude. After completing my undergraduate studies, I moved on to Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, where I completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery with honors. A few years later, I graduated with my Doctor of Medicine from the University of Texas Medical School.

After completing various internships, certifications and licenses, I started my oral surgery office here in downtown Salt Lake City. Over 30 years have passed since I started it, and during that time, I have had the opportunity to work with medical and dental professionals throughout the Greater Salt Lake area to provide exceptional care to my patients for both inpatient and outpatient procedures.

When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my lovely wife, Nance, and the rest of my family. In my spare time, I enjoy scuba diving. I am a Scuba Diving International certified dive instructor. I also enjoy fishing, hunting, horseback riding and traveling.

I look forward to working with you to help you reach your individual goals!
