Dr. Bingham loves his work and has been practicing in Magna, Utah, since 1986. After attending BYU with double majors in chemistry and business and a minor in Spanish, he took the dental aptitude test (DAT) and scored highest in the nation, making it possible for him to attend dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He graduated in 1986, following in the footsteps of his father, who graduated from the same school as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Case Western Reserve University is affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic, a world-renowned state-of-the-art research facility. Dr. Bingham is still closely affiliated with Case Western Reserve University.
Dr. Bingham participates in weeks of continuing education every year, and each week he hones his skills by teaching at the University of Utah’s dental residency program as a member of the hospital’s medical staff. He has also served on the research staff of the University of Washington in Seattle and is a member of the American Dental Association®. He has received training in oral surgery and orthodontics. His goal as a dentist is to provide long-lasting, beautiful, healthy smiles.
Dr. Bingham has been happily married to his wife, Pamela, since 1982. They have four children and five grandchildren. When he is away from the office, he loves to hike in Zion National Park and particularly enjoys the mountains, lakes and slot canyons. He earned his pilot’s license last year.
