The summer of 2013 marked Dr. Vern Iverson’s 25th year practicing dentistry in the Ogden Valley. He grew up in Brigham City, served a mission to Tokyo, Japan, did his undergraduate studies at Utah State University, and graduated with his DDS from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Along the way he met and married his wife, Kim, who worked with him as a dental hygienist. They are the parents of four children: Kali, Jarett, Hunter and Braedon. Dr. Iverson has truly enjoyed working and being friends with the many wonderful people who live in the Ogden Valley. He is also appreciative of the great staff members who have worked with him in providing care over the years. He enjoys traveling, snow and water skiing, snowmobiling, biking and playing any and every sport. He has spent several years coaching different youth sports and working with the Boy Scouts and other community programs. He also devotes a large amount of his spare time to continuing his dental education through extensive reading, studying and attending various dental courses throughout the country – taking his staff along for many of them. He is committed to always doing his best to provide an excellent dental experience and outcome for each and every patient.
Dr. Ashley Burton was born in Utah, but grew up in California, Idaho, Georgia, and Ohio. After living all over the country, she is excited to now call Ogden Valley home. It might have been the braces, the expanders, or when she knocked her front tooth out on a trampoline that Dr. Ashley knew that becoming a dentist was the career for her. Dr. Ashley graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Ohio Northern University, where she was also a 4-year starter for the soccer team and ran track in the off season. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from The Ohio State University where she also met her charming husband and Valley native, Brigham Burton. They had the opportunity to practice together in Ohio for several years after dental school. Dr. Ashley enjoys all aspects of dentistry, but especially enjoys treating children and doing cosmetic dental procedures. She also enjoys being a mom; she and Dr. Brigham Burton have two young sons, Theodore and Bennett. Dr. Ashley loves family time, sushi restaurants, and traveling. She is excited to bring her skills to the Iverson & Burton Dental team and can’t wait to meet all of the great people here in The Ogden Valley.
Dr. Brigham Burton was raised in Huntsville, Utah and and is thrilled to finally be back here in the Ogden Valley. He was a former patient of Dr. Iverson’s and gained his desire to be a dentist, in part, from years of visiting Dr. Iverson’s dental chair. He attended Valley Elementary, Snowcrest Jr., and graduated from Weber High. He attended Weber State University on a symphony orchestra scholarship playing the cello and earned his bachelor’s degree in Microbiology and Chemistry. He received his dental training at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Go Buckeyes! After graduating, Dr. Burton completed an advanced training residency at the University of Utah hospital where he received special training in sedation dentistry, dental implants surgery, treatment of dental trauma, pediatric dentistry, and wisdom tooth removal. Prior to joining the practice here in the Valley, he practiced in Zanesville, Ohio. His professional affiliations include the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. His dental degree wasn’t his only accomplishment from his school days in Ohio; he also was able to convince the prettiest girl in the dental school to marry him. He and Dr. Ashley Burton have two sons, Theodore and Bennett, whose smiles will melt even the coldest heart, guaranteed. In his free time, you will find Dr. Burton with his family. Some of the Burton family favorite activities include hitting the slopes at the local ski resorts, boating on Pineview, biking, and playing the cello and piano. He is looking forward very much to renewing old acquaintances and meeting all the new faces here in Ogden Valley. Eden UT Dentists
