DrClint1cropped.jpgDr. Clint Worton – Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Clint Worton has a unique approach to dental care for children. Not only does Dr. Clint have your child’s best oral healthcare in mind, his goals include creating a positive, fun, and nurturing environment for children and parents. Every member of Dr. Clint’s team is committed to these goals.

Dr. Clint grew up in Texas, but over 15 years ago he fell for the natural beauty and resources of the Pacific Northwest. With all of the hiking, camping and kayaking opportunities the area has to offer, he knew he had settled in the right place.

His education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University, followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree earned in 1998, at the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio. While attending dental school, Dr. Clint realized he had a knack for treating kids in the pediatric clinic. His post-doctoral specialized training in Pediatric Dentistry at the renowned Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center focused on the distinct needs of children. Dr. Clint understands that he is treating the whole child, not just their teeth.
