DR. TYLER OWENS
Dr. Tyler Owens grew up in St. George, Utah. Upon receiving his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Brigham Young University, he attended the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. Owens participated in multiple mission trips to underserved areas of the world, where he discovered his passion for pediatric dental care. Treating children during these trips led him to complete his residency and training at NYU Lutheran Pediatrics. Dr. Owens is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD).
As a board-certified pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Owens, has gone through a rigorous examination process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Only Dentists that have completed a residency in pediatric dentistry can sit for the board certification examinations. Board certification tests the knowledge and problem-solving abilities of a pediatric Dentist. In our opinion, taking your child to see a certified pediatric Dentist is as important as taking them to a pediatrician.
Dr. Owens and his wife, Kristen, have four children: Ryan, Ryder, Olivia, and Charlotte. When he is not in the office, Dr. Owens loves outdoor activities, learning new things and spending time with his family. Fun Fact: Dr. Owens has NEVER had a cavity!

She discovered her passion for treating pediatric patients and those with special health care needs while working between a community health center in upstate New York and mobile dental clinics in New York City schools. This led her to complete a fellowship program in 2019 with training on patients with complex medical problems in a hospital-based setting at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY. She finished her pediatric dentistry residency, where she served as chief resident and won the 1st place resident research award, at St. Barnabas hospital in June of 2021.

Making the appointments fun and relaxing for the patient is rewarding for her!
