Dr. Robert R. Watson grew up in a small farming town in western Montana in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. As the son of a barley farmer, he developed an appreciation for hard work.
After high school, Dr. Watson studied at Brigham Young University where he received a Bachelor of Arts in history with a minor in chemistry. He then received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. He served as a Captain in the United States Air Force as a military officer and dentist for eight years. While in the Air Force, he completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency.
Dr. Watson is proficient in a myriad of dental procedures including dental fillings, crowns, cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatment, extractions, wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign®, and pediatric dentistry. For patients that need extra help to ease their dental anxieties, Dr. Watson offers three different types of safe anti-anxiety services: nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV conscious sedation.
Dr. Watson has been married to his college sweetheart, Lyana, for 16 years, and together they have three overtly-talented children. When he is not treating patients, you will most likely find Dr. Watson at any number of his children’s activities such as rowing, tennis, theater, soccer, choir, or band.
