Your smile! It’s the first thing people notice when they meet us. Having a great smile is either a confidence booster or a confidence breaker. So much seems to rely on our sense of self worth-our confidence. It affects the way we act, the jobs we have, the jobs you seek out and just overall the way we carry ourselves. As a result, it affects not only the way we view ourselves, but the way we view others.

One of the best general dentist in the Heber valley! If you haven’t booked your kids cleaning appointments yet, make sure you book on Dr. Dorius’s kid day! They always have a theme and dress up. It’s hilarious and the kids Love it. It’s a bonus that they leave with sparkly clean teeth! (and a gift bag of goodies)!
Dr. Dorius and his staff are awesome! Dr. Dorius did an excellent job taking out a couple of old amalgam fillings. He gave me many options and let me choose the best ones for me. He has a great touch and is such a great guy. His team did a fantastic job of helping me to understand my portion of the payment after insurance did its part. I highly recommend Dr. Dorius and Dorius Dental Design to anyone, near or far. Thanks again!
