MEET DR. CALL

IMG_8464.jpeg

Dr. James Call was born and raised on a farm in Star Valley, Wyoming. He spent many hours taking care of farm animals, hauling hay, building apartments, driving large construction vehicles, fixing almost anything that was broken, and working at his dad’s lumber yard and cement plant.  He did find a little time to play a little too.  He enjoyed restoring and owning antique cars, hunting almost anything, fishing, riding motorcycles, hiking, camping, skiing, sports and snowmobiling.  

When he was 19 years old, he served a two-year LDS mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  While he was serving, he became friends with a lot of people that suffered from severe dental pain. Many of his friends had limited finances and no access to quality dental care.  He felt bad that he couldn’t help them and decided that he wanted to become a dentist to help others to avoid suffering like his friends had suffered. 

After his mission, he graduated from BYU with a B.S. degree in Zoology and from Oregon Health Sciences University with his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree.  He was honored 3 years in a row for holding the number 1 rank in his dental class.  He graduated with high honors and was inducted into the elite Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. He received the top awards in his class for the Oral Pathology and Periodontology specialties. He’s a member of the Provo District Dental Society, the Utah Dental Association, and the American dental Association. He does many hours of continuing education every year and strives every day to be better at everything he does.  

Over the past 24 years, he’s treated patients of all ages and backgrounds. He has treated many very complex cases and loves to help patients to overcome their dental anxieties and fears from their past dental experiences.  He has mastered special techniques that enable him to deliver painless dental anesthesia and extraordinary dentistry.  He always gives his full attention to your comfort and to every fine detail of everything he does for your mouth.  He is a perfectionist.  You will feel how much he cares about you and your dental health when he treats you and your family. 

When he’s not treating patients, he loves being with his wife Sandy  and their four children.  They  have two boys and two girls. His oldest son is attending UNC dental school and two children are at BYU and his youngest is a senior at PG High School.  He enjoys running, collecting and restoring antique motorcycles, fishing, skiing, hiking, camping, boating, landscaping, and serving in his church and community.
