Dr. Baxter was born number seven of eight children, raised in eastern Oregon outside the small town of Baker City. His high school included kindergarten to 12th grade with a graduating class of 17 students. Being such a small school he was valedictorian and student body president. He was on the basketball team, HS band, track team and 8-man football team. Chores were common on a ranch with eight kids, including milking the family cow, Sally, morning and evening to help supply the family's consumption of butter, cream, yogurt, and milk. Summers were spent moving irrigation pipe and building fence for nearby potato, wheat, and alfalfa farms. After a semester at BYU-Hawaii in Laie he served a full-time mission in northern France and Belgium and is now fluent in French. Dr. Baxter went on to pursue his bachelors degree at BYU-Provo in French studies before attending OHSU Dental School. Upon graduation he moved to Oahu to complete a residency where he received training from specialists in oral surgery, endodontics, orthodontic, pediatrics, and periosurgery. He completed rotations in the operating room, emergency room, and anesthesia. After his residency Dr. Baxter worked in private practice in the Honolulu area before moving to Maui and becoming the owner of Kahului Dental.
This content was provided by Dr. Baxter "I believe in conservative dentistry while upholding dentistry to the highest standard. My goal is to educate and include the patient and family in the treatment plan, allowing them to become partners in their own dental health. By being honest and explaining costs and alternatives, this allows each person to make an informed decision and feel comfortable with their dental treatment. I completed an additional residency program after dental school to expand and solidify my knowledge base."
