Dr. Welton was born in Fresno, California where he lived until 1984 when he left to attend Brigham Young University for his pre-dental education. He completed his studies at BYU in 1990, with a two year hiatus to serve as a missionary in Chile, graduating with a BS in Zoology.
Dr. Welton earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at The Medical College of Virginia, School of Dentistry, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 1994. He received numerous honors/awards for outstanding scholastic and clinical achievements in dentistry including the A. D. Williams Scholarship and the award for Outstanding Achievement in Restorative Dentistry. Nationally he is honored as an inductee to the honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. Dr. Welton received his orthodontic specialty training at MCV which he completed in 1996.
 
After completing his orthodontic specialty training Dr. Welton returned to Utah to establish a private practice. Since opening his practice he has treated thousands of patients comprising the full spectrum of orthodontic problems, from simple crowding to complex treatments involving oral surgery. Dr. Welton believes that the benefits of orthodontic treatment are more than just beautiful teeth and proper function of the mouth. Beyond that is the positive social and psychological impact treatment has on patients. For him the greatest result of orthodontic treatment is to see a timid and self-conscious patient become confident and outgoing as a result of treatment.
Dr. Welton is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists along with its regional and local constituencies, as well as, an active member in his local study group.
In order to stay current with the latest advances in orthodontics Dr. Welton regularly attends continuing education courses and is excited about the increasing use of technology in orthodontic treatment.
When not in his office Dr. Welton enjoys spending time with his wife, Sally, and his four children.
