Hi I'm Kent

I grew up in Wyoming. I am a Prosthodontist. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small Wyoming town with lots of great friends. I served a mission in the Washington D.C. area and loved it! I have since spent the last 11 years in school studying and training to be a Prosthodontist. A Prosthodontist is a dental specialist that specializes in the replacement of teeth and restoration of oral health. I love my speicialty because I get to help people restore their confidence in their smile, and in turn, themselves. I am married and am a father to 4 wonderful kids, 3 boys and 1 girl. My wife is wonderful and has chosen the very important calling of full time mother to our kids, of which I am forever grateful. I love to play and watch sports, and have a small online business.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family who was active in the LDS Church, and all of my closest friends were members. Although growing up in the church, it wasn't until I chose to serve as a missionary that my beliefs were tested to their fullest and I was compelled to my knees and find out for myself what I really believed. I never had any amazing out of body experience, or vivid dream. The Holy Spirit testified to me on many, many occasions while on my mission that was I was doing was right. The wonderful feelings of peace and joy that flooded my heart as I shared the story of Joseph Smith were a witness to me of the truth. Above all, I can't help but see the beauty of this earth and how much I love my family and think that there has to be more to our existence than what we experience. What would be the purpose of these feelings if they weren't to stay with us after death? To me it is not a coincidence that our bodies are such a wonderful, complex creation that are capable of such amazing things and amazing feelings to just have them lost and for naught after the grave. I am thankful for the peace and clarity that the knowledge of Christ gives me and my family. I can't imagine existing in this world with out it, and I don't want to think about where I might be otherwise.

How I live my faith

I believe that our actions speak the loudest and can be a powerful tool to help others. I am privileged to be able to help in my local ward congregation and to teach others of Christ and His love. I feel such a great unity and belonging to the people in my area, and I hope to portray that to others through my example. Faith can be a very private thing, but it can also be the loudest beacon that radiates from your being.
