My name is Gregory Carr. I’ve been blessed with a beautiful and supportive wife Jenna and three amazing kids, Brinley, Julianne, and McKay. We spend a lot of time together enjoying the outdoors, playing sports, camping, and going on vacations (especially going to Bear Lake, Disneyland, and the beach). Our main goal as a family is to lead happy, productive lives and to enrich both ourselves and those around us.
A Little Background
I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah where I played high school basketball and baseball. After high school, I attended Brigham Young University-Idaho (formally known as Ricks Junior College) for one year on a baseball scholarship. I then moved to The Philippines to serve a mission for my church for two years where I became fluent in Tagalog (Filipino) and learned many valuable life lessons. I returned home to continue my education and baseball career at Brigham Young University-Idaho for one more year. After that, I decided to give up my dream of becoming a Major League Baseball Player in order to pursue my dream of becoming a dentist. While finishing up my schooling at BYU-Provo, I got braces to close some spaces that I had between my teeth. Until that time in my life, I had never considered orthodontics as a career. As an adult patient with braces, I was amazed and so intrigued with how teeth are moved around in order to give a beautiful smile. I also got to experience firsthand how having straight, beautiful teeth can affect a person’s life. It was my very own orthodontic experience that got me interested in orthodontics.
I then attended Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA where I graduated as co-valedictorian. I earned my Masters Degree and certificate in orthodontics from Saint Louis University. After graduation I practiced orthodontics in Southern California. Even though my family loved living in Southern California (especially because we were so close to Disneyland and the beach), we missed the beautiful Utah mountains and wanted to live closer to our families. We moved to Utah in May 2014 and have loved being back here! We have lots of family from Roy, West Haven, and West Weber so we have spent a lot of time in this area of Utah, and we love it here! I feel very fortunate and blessed to practice in such a great place, and to be able to associate with the amazing people that live here.
I Truly Enjoy Orthodontics
Although I had some idea, little did I know how much I was truly going to enjoy orthodontics. I can honestly say that as a Roy, UT orthodontist I’m excited to go into the office each day to see my patients and their families, and to address any challenges they present. My work ethic, drive for excellence, and desire to provide the highest quality of patient satisfaction are some of my greatest assets. I realize this is simply a brief snapshot of my identity; however, I hope this will help you get a feel for who I am. Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I look forward to meeting you!
