Dr. Layton is a Colorado native, his pre-dental degrees in Biology and chemistry were obtained from Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado near where he grew up. His Parents still reside in the San Luis Valley. He is the oldest of 4.
He received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the Colorado University Dental School where he graduated with awards from the Colorado Prosthodontics Society and the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry for outstanding outstanding clinical skills.
Following a year long Advanced Clinical Training program, Dr. Layton set up his first Dental office in Cortez, Colorado where he practiced until 2005.
In 2005 Dr. Layton left Cortez and joined Nizhoni Smiles Inc. in Shiprock, NM to start a dental program to compliment there already successful Orthodontic program that incidentally was so successful because of our own Dr. Herman.
Over the next 8 years he worked to bring Dental services to the people of the Navajo Nation that had not previously been offered by their traditional dental clinics.
Also, during this time he Consulted with 3 corporate dental groups based in Albuquerque, NM helping them expand the services they offered.
In 2012 Dr. Layton settled back in Farmington and contracted with a dental group that allowed him to continue to treat many of the patients he had treated and become friends with in Shiprock before that program closed its doors.
On September 15th, 2016 Dr. Layton made the choice to join us here at Four Corners Orthodontics and Dental.
From day one it has felt that he’s been part of our family forever. Dr Layton has a wonderful desire to give the best options for dental services possible and provides them in a very relaxed, non threating way , if you have a fear you will understand completely.
Dr Layton is always a joy to work with daily and it doesn’t feel like your at work and the day flies by! With his passion for quality dentistry it is very apparent to every patient he meets. I am honored to be asked to introduce you to our dentist Dr. Layton and I know you’ll agree with me and your time with him will exceed your expectations. We look forward to seeing you soon!!
I love my wide beautiful smile from Dr. Herman!
