Samuel Bailey, DMD
Dr. Samuel Bailey attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated magna cum laude. After dental school, he completed a two-year pediatric dental residency at Primary Children’s Medical Center. This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepared Dr. Bailey to meet the unique needs of infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special healthcare needs. Dr. Bailey was awarded Diplomat status by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry shortly after concluding his formal training. He accomplished this by successfully completing a series of voluntary examinations offered by the board of examiners.
Dr. Bailey has been happily married for 10 years and has 3 children: Camille, Landon, and Lila. He enjoys spending time with his family and enjoying the great outdoors. When not working or completing “Honey-do’s”, he enjoys fishing, camping, and hunting. Dr. Bailey has been practicing pediatric dentistry in Utah since 2010. He enjoys working with children and understands that each one has unique needs. Dr. Bailey is dedicated to making each dental experience as enjoyable and fun as possible.
Cayla Ray, DMD
Dr. Cayla Ray was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. Raised in a small town, she values genuine interactions and believes having fun is the root of any good experience, whether young or old.
Dr. Cayla obtained her bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, where she had the pleasure of playing collegiate tennis. She continued her education and graduated from the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health with her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). It was during this time that Dr. Cayla established a strong interest and foundation for whole body health care and pursued a Certificate in Public Health with a dental emphasis. She has led several dental mission trips and believes that prevention and education is just as important as any traditional treatment or advanced technology.
After her dental school training, Dr. Cayla completed a two-year pediatric dental residency at Primary Children’s Hospital. During this time, she received extensive training in dentistry for children, adolescents and individuals with special health care needs.
Her training also specialized in sedation and general anesthesia, as well as managing medically complex cases and dental trauma-related emergencies.
In her free time, Dr. Cayla enjoys spending time with her fiancé and two dogs, exploring new places and new foods, working out, and fostering as many dogs as possible until they find their “fur”ever home.
