Our Utah County Doctors

We treat your child as we would our own children.

Pediatric Smiles Doctor

Dr. Adam Shepherd

Pediatric Dentist

As a board certified Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Shepherd has focused his practice on a passion for non-invasive dentistry for children. He graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2009, and takes great pride in developing caring relationships with parents and especially with his child patients, making visiting the dentist a great experience for both the child and parents. This “Our Child” philosophy has carried him into community involvement with children having less fortunate dental needs in areas of Utah and throughout the world.

Dr. Bowen Miles

Pediatric Orthodontist

Dr. Bowen Miles is a phenomenal Orthodontist. He has been treating patients for 30 years. Dr. Miles is a diamond member of Invisalign and believes that Invisalign is a powerful orthodontic tool for hygienic and esthetic treatment. Dr. Miles started his schooling at BYU, where he got his BA from the Department of Classical and Asian Languages. He then started his orthodontic training at USC, where he developed many concepts that he still uses today.

Some fun facts about Dr. Miles: he enjoys golf, loves to walk his dog, participate in church activities, and have dinner with his friends. Dr. Miles loves to spend time with his family and travel, though COVID has put a damper on that recently. Dr. Miles likes to sing and has had the opportunity to sing with the Desert Chorale, a community choir in Las Vegas. He is also a big fan of Garrison Keillor, BYU sports, the Utah Jazz, the Manhattan Transfer, and the suspense of mystery novels.

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Smiles of Utah provides comprehensive pediatric dental care for children of all ages.


Pediatric Smiles is proud to offer orthodontic services and care to patients of all ages.


When cavities on baby (primary) teeth are small we are able to restore them with a tooth colored filling material.


When there’s a dental emergency like trauma, our doctors feel it’s best to see your child in our office.


At Pediatric Smiles, we strongly recommend the placement of sealants on both baby (primary) and adult (permanent) teeth.

Root Canals

When decay reaches the nerve/pulp of the baby tooth a pulpotomy or baby root canal is necessary.

My kids love this place. They ask to go to the dentist all the time and have even made a paper countdown chain for their next visit. The TVs in the ceiling and their choice of show on Netflix is always a winner.

Cameo Bell

So wonderful with my boys. Their patience and kindness made what could have been a horrible experience a great one.

Traci Beiber

They try their best to keep out of pocket price low. Fun environment. Staff friendly. Knowledgeable dentists. Train set in waiting room which causes my kids to not want to leave.

Trey Harper

Doctor and staff are personable and welcoming. For my kids, pediatric smiles made dentist trips easy. They no longer fear the dentist. Plus, the cost is equal to our family dentist.
