For exciting updates & to follow our progress, be sure to follow us:


For 18 years now my staff and I have been proudly serving the Nephi area at Nephi Dental Clinic located at 310 N. 400 E. We have loved serving our patients in this historic building, but find that we have simply outgrown the space. Modern dentistry is advancing rapidly. We have always been on the forefront of technology to enhance the dental experience for our patients. Due to our growing practice and our current space restriction for revolutionary equipment, we are excited to announce the construction of our new state of the art dental facility coming fall of 2020 along with a new name change.

May we introduce…

490 North Main
next to the Nephi City Park

It is with some sadness that we retire the name of Nephi Dental Clinic, recognizing its long-standing tradition of service in our community. However, we want to reassure our patients that the level of service you have come to count on will remain unchanged. We feel these changes will only increase our ability to offer the highest standard of care and will allow us to expand the services we provide. We are grateful for your trust in allowing us to assist in your dental needs and look forward to doing so for many years to come.

Sincerest Regards,
Dr. Douglas A. Petersen
