Family Smiles of Layton is the second office in the Smiles Dental Group, bringing caring and compassionate brand of dentistry to a new audience.

Dr. Murdock invests a lot of time and money in ongoing education for new technologies and techniques to offer a wide variety of services to patients that’s far beyond normal for a typical general dentist.

Dr. PJ Sutton grew up in the Seattle area with a love of all things outdoors. He went to BYU for undergrad studies and graduated with honors from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco’s dental school.

He began his career at Parris Island Marine Recruit Base as a naval dental officer, where he literally spent months ‘shucking’ marines’ wisdom teeth all day every day alongside an experienced orthodontist.

Dr. Sutton spent four years in the armed services, completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Certificate and earning the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medal.

He opened Eagle Mountain Dental in Brigham City in 2007, and merged with Dr. Mark Murdock’s Brigham City Smiles in 2015 to serve in a complementary practice that put patients’ needs first.

His laid-back, yet prompt, ease has a way of settling anxious patients and making people smile.

When not focused on dentistry, Dr. Sutton spends time in the outdoors, plays sports like basketball, softball, and golf, and sheds his chairside ease to coach youth sports.
