Dr. Jason G. Barton
Dr. Jason G. Barton has been practicing comprehensive dental care for the past 20 years focusing on ideal patient care, dental implants, orthodontics, wisdom teeth, cosmetics, and all aspects of advanced dental care. He attended one of the top dental schools in the nation, University of the Pacific. After graduating in 1995, he relocated his family to Southern California where he practiced as a general dentist for almost 10 years. In the mid 2000’s, he and his family relocated to northern Utah, where he joined forces with Dr. Gary McLeod. Together they quickly began expanding their practices to several locations known as iSmile, Dentistry with a Heart. Today, there are almost 20 iSmile locations, located in Northern Utah, Southern Utah, Phoenix, and Tucson Arizona – with plans to expand further into Nevada and California.
Dr. Barton’s role in iSmile, other than being an owner, is to provide advanced dental care to the patients in the network of iSmile offices. He is the Chief Clinical Director in Implants, Orthodontics, Periodontal Surgery, and Cosmetics. The multiple discipline approach Dr. Barton utilizes enhances the patient experience in comprehensive care. The technology used in the iSmile network–3D imaging, Lasers, Cerec same day crowns, and digital X-rays–is state-of-the-art and provides an excellent avenue for ideal care. Dr. Barton also teaches and offers education to other iSmile doctors in the areas of implant surgery and restoration, orthodontics for all ages, periodontal surgery, and cosmetics.
Dr. Barton personally places over 50 implants and oversees the placement of over 100 implants a month. He has placed nearly 5,000 implants in 20 years of practice and continues to focus on quality implant care for patients. He also oversees the orthodontic care for over 500 patients on a monthly basis.
Dr. Barton has been married to Kathryn for over 25 years and continues to cherish the relationship he has with her and their 5 boys. Dr. Barton met his wife Kathryn while attending BYU-Hawaii. Since being married in 1988, they have lived in Laie, Hawaii, San Francisco, California, Orange County, California, and Utah. Their family activities have taken them to several countries for humanitarian work and service. They are very active in their church service and continually look for opportunities to serve not only in the church, but also in the community. Community involvement has led Dr. Barton to coach over 55 teams in 20 years in the sports of football, baseball, basketball, and soccer – mentoring young athletes to become young men and respecters of all. If Dr. Barton has any personal time, he enjoys surfing the waves of California, Mexico, and Hawaii.
