Dr. Joe Larsen, DMD
Dr. Joseph Larsen grew up in a large family who loved spending time exploring the outdoors throughout the wonderful state of Utah. He grew up in Salt Lake City and was the first born of eight children. Some of his favorite childhood memories are centered on the backpacking trips he experienced. Dr. Larsen was actively involved in the Boy Scouts, earning his Eagle Scout rank and learned leadership skills throughout the process of earning this prestigious level. His love for outdoor adventure has continued with Dr. Larsen into adulthood. He has been able to have his own exciting experiences such as white water rafting as a Scoutmaster surrounded by young men who are looking to him as an example.
When Dr. Larsen was growing up he had many positive experiences with his childhood dentist and orthodontist. Those experiences inspired him to go into dentistry. As a focused and determined student, Dr. Larsen was driven to do his very best and was successful at making the very most of his experience at the renown Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Larsen is married with five children ranging from 8 months to 12 years old. He enjoys being a father, always looking forward to the hugs from his kids when he walks in the door from work.
Spending time with family is his greatest joy. If he is not spending time with all of his children and his wife, Dr. Larsen can be found outside enjoying some fly-fishing or maybe a nice game of golf. He enjoys many hobbies and still makes time to be an active leader in the Boy Scouting program. He has taken up outdoor photography and enjoys capturing wonderful images from hiking and camping trips with is family.
