Dr. Reid Swenson was born in Salt Lake City and raised in Lehi. “If you have seen The Sandlot you have seen my childhood” said Dr. Swenson. He remembers Lehi when there were no stop lights and witnessed the filming of Foot Loose which put Lehi on the map.
He learned to speak Spanish while serving as a missionary in Los Angeles then returned to graduate from Brigham Young University with honors. He attended dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska where he saw the Cornhuskers win two national championships and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
Dr. Swenson applied to every school in the Chicago area hoping to be close to his beloved Cubs. He was accepted to an orthodontic residency at Northwestern University and absolutely loved Chicago and his bleacher bum friends at Wrigley Field. He was also one of the few Jazz fans in the United Center the night Utah lost to the Bulls. It was a sad moment for him.
Dr. Swenson is married and has six daughters! (recently added…3 son-in-laws). He knows the lyrics to more musicals than he cares to admit and is very proficient at cleaning hair from drains. His many years of mastering “the ponytail”, teaching his girls about 80’s rock, and making nightly milkshakes are all coming in handy as he is now “Papa” to three beautiful grandchildren.
He and his wife Elise are glad to have settled their family in Utah where they enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful family lifestyle. Dr. Swenson loves to fly fish, camp, ski, golf, and watch baseball, but most of all he loves to give people beautiful smiles!
