Dr. Nick Young was born in Provo and has lived in the area for most of his life. While growing up he attended Westridge Elementary, Dixon Middle School, and Provo High. After high school he served a mission in Lima, Peru where he spent most of his time living in small coastal villages south of Lima. He still uses his Spanish nearly every day at work and loves Hispanic cultures and meeting people from South and Central America. Dr. Young graduated magna cum laude with a biology degree from BYU and then attended dental school at the University of Louisville where he graduated in 2009. Dr. Young met his wife Heather at church in a BYU singles ward and the two have been married since 2004. They currently live in Vineyard and have three children. Dr. Young’s favorite thing to do outside of work is play with his kids, especially when it involves helping them learn to play sports. Dr. Young loves taking about football, basketball, baseball, and golf with patients, and he’s a loyal/fanatical BYU, Jazz, 49’ers, and Redsox fan. If he’s not watching or playing sports, Dr. Young enjoys shooting guns, grilling and smoking food, learning about random things to make him better at Jeopardy, and anything that involves competition. Dr. Young loves his job and especially likes helping people get out of pain and seeing them go from hiding their teeth to showing them off.
