Meet Dr. Folkman
Dr. Scott Folkman grew up right here in Layton, graduating from Layton High School. He received his bachelor's degree in microbiology from Weber State University, and graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine where he received multiple awards for his clinical skills and abilities. He then received his certificate in pediatric dentistry from the University of Florida, and is a candidate for board certification with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Folkman's education included advanced and specialized training in dentistry for children and adolescents, persons with special needs of all ages, and medically compromised patients. His residency also included extensive and rigorous training in sedation, anesthesia, growth & development, and orthodontics.
Dr. Folkman thinks working with children is the best job ever, and wants to make sure they are happy and having a positive experience at each visit. His wife will tell you his sense of humor is better suited for children anyway. He loves spending time with his wife and three boys playing sports, watching movies, and hanging out at Bear Lake from time to time. Dr. Folkman is also passionate about autism awareness since his middle son was diagnosed with autism a few years ago. This experience has helped him develop a greater respect and connection with children with special needs and their families. Dr. Folkman is excited to be back in his hometown and looks forward to many years of developing relationships with the families in the community.
