All Smiles: Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry


Branton J. Richter, DDS | (801) 766-2266 | 3300 N. Running Creek Way, #F-101 (Across from Micron/IM Flash), Lehi |

   Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry knows one of the most important factors in good dental care throughout life is having positive dental experiences as a child.

   “Our philosophy is that it is as important for a child to have a positive experience at our office as it is to get the dental work completed,” Dr. Branton Richter says.

   With the practice’s movement into laser dentistry, children have a preferred alternative to drills and shots. Laser dentistry allows minimally invasive access and filling of cavities, leaving as much healthy tooth structure as possible.

   Better yet, laser dentistry typically requires no anesthetic or shot, so children don’t have to worry about having a numb mouth for several hours after their visit.

   Dr. Richter and his staff have specialized training that facilitates expert care for children’s unique dental needs.

   To best serve the practice’s pediatric patients and parents, Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry will add the skilled services of Dr. Benjamin Karren.

   “Our No. 1 goal is to make every dental visit a positive experience and as care-free as possible,” Dr. Richter says. “With Dr. Benjamin Karren joining the Dry Creek family this summer, we have been able to continue to bring the best in dental care and offer a more convenient experience for our patients.”

Needle-Free Living
   Kids don’t like needles. When parents mention going to the dentist or doctor, the first words they often hear from children are, “Do I have to get a shot?”   Dr. Branton Richter understands kids — he’s a father himself — and knows that using laser treatments to complete dental work means one very important thing to patients — no shots.
This dedication to patient comfort motivates Dr. Richter to stay up to date on the latest in effective, shot-free dental care.
When kids ask if they will get a shot at Dry Creek’s office, more often than not parents can say, “No!”
