Dr. Todd Larsen was born and raised in the Eastern part of the rural Utah Uintah Basin, namely, Roosevelt, Utah. He grew up at the base of the Uinta Mountains hiking, camping, and fishing with his dad. Dr. Larsen attended Brigham Young University, where he met and married the love of his life, Christy Arrowood from Roswell, Georgia. They moved to Atlanta after graduation and lived there for four years. At that time, he rekindled his desire to follow in his dad’s footsteps to be a dentist. He then attended Southern Illinois University, School of Dental Medicine, in Alton, Illinois — just across the river from St. Louis, Missouri — and graduated in June of 1998, ranking 4th in his class and receiving numerous awards as an outstanding dental student.
FAMILY & FUN
In his spare time, Dr. Larsen loves to spend time with his wife and four children, their spouses, and his grandchildren. He also enjoys sports (mostly football), cooking and eating good food, traveling, and an occasional fishing trip with his father back to the Uinta Mountains!

Dr. Larsen is an alumnus of the Dawson Academy, one of the premiere dental education centers in America. He also is a member of the education-centered group, the Academy of General Dentistry.

At the heart of Dr. Larsen’s practice is the desire to provide the best possible care to his “family” of patients. His small-town roots show through in the way he treats each patient like family, from babies to adults — he wants nothing but the best for each patient’s situation. His education and experience allow Dr. Larsen to provide comprehensive dentistry, including cosmetic procedures such as crowns and veneers. Some other procedures that he provides are implants, extractions, dentures, root canals, and teeth whitening. He is also trained in TMJ pain management. Dr. Larsen loves working with children and helping them also see the importance of dental health.
