About Dr. Upton:

Dr. John H. Upton, Jr., a native of California, has been in practice in Arizona for over 30 years. He is a graduate of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona and Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. His dedication to excellence has led him to persue countless hours of continuing education through the Pankey institute, the Foundation for Advanced Continuing Education, the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and many others. He received his Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2003, and is one of a select group of dentists in Arizona who have achieved that distinction.

Dr. Upton's practice provides comprehensive cosmetic and restorative care for the entire family. By building relationships and listening to your concerns and desires about your smile, long-term solutions to oral health care can be developed. In addition, aesthetically beautiful smiles using latest technology in cosmetic and laser dentistry, all aspects of dental care including decay, preventative periodontal (gum) treatment, and occlusion (your bite) are evaluated.

The new patient interview is designed to be an opportunity for you to communicate your goals.

As the parents of four children, the youngest two of whom are in college, Dr. Upton and his wife, Becky, enjoy a life filled with the joys of grandchildren and friends.


Dr. Upton is an active participant in the community, serving as a dentist for Smiles for Life, which raises millions of dollars for children's charities and medical research. From March to June we raise money by providing teeth whitening at a discounted rate. All of our materials are donated and we donate our time. Half of what is donated is given to Garth Brooks Foundation for Kids and the other half is given to our local charity at West Valley Children's Crisis Center.
