Clayton, started Clayton Plastic Surgery and was later joined by his two sons, Dr. John N. Clayton and Dr. David N. Clayton, who now practice at Alta View Plastic Surgery Specialists. Dr. Clayton earned his Doctor of Philosophy in Epidemiology before attending medical school. He then completed a general surgery residency at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles, California, and is currently certified by the American Board of Surgery.

He and his wife Heidi are the parents of three children, and are happy to call Utah home. Practice Focus My practice covers the entire spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery including hand surgery, the treatment for skin cancers and pediatric conditions.
