They are his focus in life and he loves spending time with his wife and kids, especially outdoors!
Service has always been a big part of Dr. Bess’ life. He has provided dentistry in Fiji and Guatemala, and serves locally at Give Kids A Smile annually to help underprivileged children with their dental needs. He worked part-time for a few years, with the Navajo Nation to provide dental care to Native Americans in Southern Utah.
Dr. Bess spends a few hours a week in the research and development department of Ultradent. This company is always producing and manufacturing the next best thing in dentistry. His involvement started in January of 2003 and is a great way for him to stay a step ahead on the latest technology by playing a role in the research and development of many products that have not yet reached the dental community.
Presenting continuing education courses to dentists all over the United States occupies a fair amount of Dr. Bess’ time. He works to help them excel at providing the highest quality of care wherever their practice is located.
Dr. Bess has a goal to be happy and believes strongly that with the correct attitude, atmosphere, and people, something as dreaded as a root canal can be tolerable, and on occasion even fun. His greatest hope at work is that when his patients leave his office they feel like they have gone to see some friends!
