About Us

Meet Dr. Walter Meden

Dr. Walter Meden graduated from New York University with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree and has been practicing cosmetic dentistry in the Salt Lake City area for over 20 years. He completed his postgraduate residency at New York Hospital and followed up with an internship in surgery at Mount Sanai Hospital. Additionally, he has completed the Advanced Dental Studies Master Aesthetic Dentist postgraduate program at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute (LVI). His comprehensive training in advanced neuromuscular dentistry makes him part of an elite group of dentists and his understanding of occlusion in relation to cosmetic dental procedures makes his training especially unique. Less than 1% of the total dentists in the United States have had this advanced training. Dr. Meden specializes in cosmetic dentistry, taking pride in offering the finest in patient care and services at his practice located in Draper, Utah.

After multiple consults to various offices, it was certain that Dr. Meden was the most concise, concerned, and able to perform this type of work. I am beyond thrilled with the results … and would highly recommend Dr. Meden to anyone.

Why Work With Me?

Whether it’s a single restoration or a more comprehensive full mouth rehabilitation, I create for my patients the “smile lift”—natural looking teeth that are meant to complement the natural facial symmetry. Great aesthetic enhancement has to be performed with great planning and precise execution.

Because of my extensive training and experience as a dentist, I’m proud to say that my patients receive the best care available. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to help thousands of patients in my office, and have even become a trusted voice in the community about dental issues.
