Dr. Boynton provides a wide range of services for his patients including cleanings and exams, Cerec crowns, veneers, implants, Invisalign, whitening and more! He takes great pride in his work by offering the best dental care possible while using the latest in dental technology to provide more comfort and care than ever.

If Dr. Boynton isn't in the office he can be found sneaking his evening bowl of ice cream, sharing his love of photography with his girls, hiking, playing with his two goldendoodles, Baxter and Ollie, or taking care of his household chores - the "honey do" list never ends, he says with a smile!
