Samuel L. Clyde, DMD
Dentist in Springville, UT
Dr. Samuel L. Clyde was raised in a military home, moving around the nation and eventually settling in Alaska where he graduated with honors from Colony High School. Dr. Clyde served a two-year LDS mission in southern France where he grew a deep love for all people and cultures world-wide. Subsequently, he has been striving to learn Spanish to better communicate and serve in the community.
Following his mission, Dr. Clyde graduated from Utah State University with Cum Laude honors. While at Utah State, Dr. Clyde was heavily involved in school sports and programs, first and foremost as player turned coach and captain of Utah State’s traveling Ultimate Frisbee team. He also discovered a love for the sport of curling during his time at Utah State and won back to back championships with his team. Dr. Clyde went on to attend Roseman University of Health Science College of Dental Medicine and excelled in all areas of general dentistry. He brought the sport of curling into the limelight and founded Roseman’s first and only collegiate sports team, the Plaque Sweepers, bringing awareness to the community of both curling and the importance of oral health.
Dr. Clyde puts his patient’s needs first and excels in communication to plan with patients the best course of action to achieve their oral health goals. While Dr. Clyde loves all aspects in dentistry, he is particularly passionate about cosmetic dentistry and helping patients achieve happy, healthy smiles. He wants everyone to be able to smile confidently and be happy with their teeth. Dr. Clyde strives to stay up to date on the latest techniques, procedures, materials, and technology in dentistry in order to provide the best care for patients.
Though Dr. Clyde moved around a lot throughout his life, Alaska is home, where he enjoys fishing, sport shooting, nordic and alpine skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, backpacking, rafting/kayaking, and boating (not as cold as you would think). Other hobbies and interests include golf, disc golf, soccer, cinema, cooking, sewing, crafting, board and card games, hammocking, involvement in local renaissance faires, and all things beach related.
