Meet Dr. Houston Tanner D.D.S.

Dr. Tanner graduated Cum Laude from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, and earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Creighton University School of Dentistry, also graduating Cum Laude.  His wife, Rebecca, grew up as a patient in our practice, and her parents, siblings and even her grandmother have been patients in our practice for more than 30 years.

When it comes to clinical practice, Dr. Tanner values the best interests of his patients. It is his philosophy that each patient comes to us with his or her own questions, concerns, fears, beliefs, and needs. In his words, “I make sure my patient’s concerns are understood, their questions addressed, and their dental care delivered with care and understanding.”  Dr. Tanner enjoys all aspects of dentistry but has admitted to a fascination and a desire to continuously study implant placement and endodontics (root canals).  Dr. Tanner is a member of the International Dental Implant Association and is proud to have been awarded a mastership in the organization.

Outside of the office, Dr. Tanner enjoys any type of competitive activity including running, racquetball, pickleball, and other sports.  He enjoys spending time with his wife, Rebecca, their daughters Kyree and Lily, and their son Reece. As a family, they spend time together cheering at the kids’ respective sports functions, playing board games as a family, and heading out for ice cream (the kids’ favorite treat!). He also enjoys relaxing on a Saturday, building furniture, assembling computers, and tinkering with electronics. He is also fluent in Spanish, having served a two-year church mission in Concepcion, Chile.
