Hi I'm Keith

I'm an orthodontist, I love creating beautiful smiles, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, father, and an orthodontist. I enjoy being with my family at home and creating gorgeous smiles at work. I love to hike in the beautiful Alaskan mountains. I enjoy horseback riding. I currently have 5 children. I grew up playing soccer and downhill skiing in Utah. I played soccer for Utah State University and skied on their Downhill ski racing team. I have been a Dentist since 2005 and an orthodontist since 2007.

Why I am a Mormon

I came from a long line of followers of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I was taught the gospel from a very young age. I have prayed several times in my life to know if the teaching of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the true teaching of our Heavenly Father. Usually, I would receive a feeling of peace that would help me accept the truthfulness. However, while serving a mission for the LDS church; I was once again praying to have a strong testimony of the teachings of the church. The next day I was telling someone about how the true gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth through Joseph Smith. While teaching about this, the Spirit of the Holy Ghost entered my body with a strong force with overwhelming feelings of love, comfort, knowledge, etc, all at the same time. It seemed to energize my whole soul. I knew absolutely that it was God letting me know that this was His church and that he did in fact, come down to the earth in person with His son Jesus Christ to call Joseph Smith as a prophet to restore the true gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. I will be eternally grateful for that and I will always know that this is God's church on earth.

How I live my faith

I strive to follow the teaching and example of Jesus Christ. My wife and I teach the principal and ordinances of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to our children. I pray urgently to always be able to choose the right and that my family will be able to do the same also.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. It is also the power that God used in the direction of the formation of the earth. Priesthood power comes from being obedient to God's commandments to the point where he entrusts His authority to act as if for Him. Priesthood authority comes from the laying on of hands by others who have had this authority. Every priesthood bearer can trace their priesthood lineage back to Jesus Christ Himself. For example, mine is: Keith Coombs- Craig Coombs-Boyd Coombs- Harold B Lee- Heber J Grant- Brigham Young- Joseph Smith- Peter, James, and John-Jesus Christ Show more Show less
