We care about your mouth AND you.
At South Temple Dental, we love a family atmosphere in which we come to know
our patients. By doing so, we are best able to treat your mouth and make you
happy. Our team works tirelessly to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
You will see familiar faces each time you come back, unlike the chain dentists.
We know visiting the dentist is not anybody’s favorite thing to do, but you will
Dr. Updike is proud to say that he is your adviser in your dentistry. He is not here
to tell you what to do, but rather is here to let you know all your options. After
discussing the pros and cons of all your options, we are confident that you will
make the decision that is best for you.
Dr. Spencer Updike grew up in the Salt Lake area and graduated from Murray
High School. He then went to California on a service mission for his church. After
graduating from Brigham Young University, he attended Ohio State University
and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery. After practicing in Arizona, he moved
to Utah in the summer of 2010 and fulfilled a dream to purchase his own practice.
In his free time, Dr. Updike loves spending time with his wife and two children.
They enjoy spending time outdoors, especially in the Utah summer weather
after living in Phoenix. They look forward to getting away to Lake Powell and
spending time hiking in the mountains. Dr. Updike also enjoys being involved
with just about any sport and especially loves the Jazz. He is still trying to
convince his wife to do the same.
