Dr. Carson Wagstaff

CARSON B. WAGSTAFF, DMD

PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Wagstaff was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is 40 years old and has been happily married for 17. He and his wife Amanda are the proud, but tired parents of three children ages 13, 11, and 8. Some of his interests and hobbies outside of dentistry include teaching, drawing, reading, and enjoying the outdoors. That said, he is happiest when spending time with his wife and three kids, regardless of whatever it is they are doing.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

I love being a dentist and pride myself in providing the finest in dental care with a caring, personalized touch. I am committed to lifelong learning and continual improvement within my chosen profession. Toward that end, after completing dental school I completed an optional, year-long Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. I had the opportunity to provide comprehensive dental care for very complex cases. At the hands of various dental specialists, I received training in cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, IV conscious sedation, root canals, and dental surgery, including extractions and dental implants. I know that my patients will benefit from my background and training. When you visit our office you will see that your concerns are my concerns, and you can trust that my recommendations represent what I would want for your smile as if it were my own.

Thank you for taking the time to look over my biography.

Dr. Chet Kener

CHET KENER, DMD

PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Kener is an Idaho native hailing from Pocatello, Idaho and is the product of several generations of potato farmers.  He graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry where he met and married his sweetheart, Julia. He graduated with his doctoral degree in Dental Medicine from Case Western University.  After spending hours of his time off from school shoveling several feet of snow in Ohio, Dr. Kener decided he was ready for a warmer climate. It took little convincing from his wife Julia, who is from Tucson, and one visit for him to fall in love with the area. Together they have four wonderful children Evelyn (8), Jace (6), and Aurelia (3), and Sam (1). When not at work, he enjoys running, hiking with his family, and accompanying a children’s choir and a congregational choir in Oro Valley on the piano and organ.  Dr. Kener brings 5 years of CEREC experience and is excited to meet all of the wonderful patients of Gladden Farms Family Dentistry. 

PERSONAL STATEMENT

It’s a lifelong commitment to excellence in learning and in delivering the absolute best dental treatment possible using the latest technology. I strive to exceed your expectations in every possible way. At your appointment, you can expect a thorough examination and an open dialog about any questions or concerns you may have. I will then customize a treatment plan specific to your needs and circumstances.  My goal is to make you feel comfortable and treat you like family so that together we can improve your oral health and help you achieve the smile you deserve.
