If you’re looking for high-quality care from a team of periodontal perfectionists, you’ve come to the right place! Transforming our patients’ grins and improving the health of their gums is what keeps us smiling day in and day out. We take the time to make sure each patient feels heard and understood — at our office, you’ll never feel rushed. We also know that periodontal work can sometimes be intimidating. That’s why we’re here to listen to your needs, explain your options, and keep you comfortable throughout each and every visit.
Dr. Ward was born in Provo, Utah and raised in Indio, California. He served an LDS mission in Pocatello, Idaho, where he learned to speak Spanish and crave spicy foods. Later, Aaron attended Brigham Young University, where he met his wife, Celeste. They have five beautiful children: Annie, Ethan, Benjamin, Isaac, and Leah.
Dr. Ward received his dental education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Dental School, where he graduated magna cum laude in 2006 with a recognition of excellence in Periodontology. He then dedicated three years to a Periodontal Residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK, achieving his Certificate in Periodontics in 2009. Dr. Ward continues his periodontal and dental education regularly, and he has also received his Master of Science degree. Dr. Ward is a member of the following professional organizations:
In 2009 the Ward family moved to Perry, Utah. In his free time, Dr. Ward is fishing with his boys, working in his garden, or playing with his kids. He also enjoys swimming, skiing, tennis, triathlons, and camping with his family.
During his career as a dentist, Dr. Buck has earned two Master’s Degrees. The first based on research in Endodontics; the second based on research in Prosthodontics.
Since 2008, Dr. Buck’s initial primary focus in his practice was Prosthodontics—including both fixed and removable implants and maxillofacial rehabilitation. During this time, he also learned to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea directly under the tutelage of Dr. Thornton, the creator of TAP oral devices. In his time as a prosthodontist, Dr. Buck has treated patients for TMD and has taken a gnathologic approach with great success. These successes intrigued him, and from 2011 until 2014 he treated only the most difficult cases of TMD that were presented to military clinics.
He maintains a Diplomate Status with the American Board of Prosthodontics and is a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontics. He is also a Board-Certified Dentist with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

During your first visit we’ll go over your dental history and top periodontal concerns. Dr. Ward will examine your teeth and gums and develop a treatment plan to address your concerns and restore your smile to its optimal health and appearance.
Throughout this process, consider us your partners in periodontal health; we’re committed to being completely transparent about your options, pricing, and desired goals so that you know what to expect and what the final results will be.
New patients can enjoy complimentary consultations with Dr. Ward to discuss your needs and explore possible solutions.
Our goal is always to keep patients comfortable, happy, and even relaxed! That’s why we’ve made our office a warm and inviting place to visit, from our massaging dental chairs to other patient-centered amenities.
Using cone beam technology, we can provide patients with 3D images that display much more detailed information than traditional x-rays alone.
Our intraoral scanner provides mess-free impressions for patients instead of the goopy, uncomfortable putty-based impressions of the past.
Enjoy the convenience of our practice’s in-office lab. Because we craft your prosthetics in-house, you won’t be sent to a secondary location to get your implants or restorations created.
Our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser can be used to reshape the gum line or remove excess gum tissue in one quick, simple, and more comfortable procedure.
Each year Dr Ward takes a trip to Ecuador to provide dental services to kids in need. He also picks one deserving person per year to receive the life changing procedure of All on 4 Dental Implants.
Giving back to those in need is important for all of us here at the practice of Dr. Aaron T. Ward. Each year Dr. Ward takes a week-long trip to Ecuador to provide free dental services to children in orphanages. He also accepts nominations for people in need of All-on-4 treatment and picks one person to receive them at no cost.
