MANTI—The Manti Family Dental Clinic has a new dentist, Dr. Richard Carlile. He and his wife Rose (maiden name Fife) and their family recently moved to Manti from Port Angeles, Washington to assume ownership of clinic as Dr. Leonard Aste retires.
Dr. Carlile grew up in Kaneohe, Hawaii. He received a bachelor of science degree in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University in 2007 and graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 2011. He completed a two-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii from 2012-2014 where he received advanced training in oral surgery, implants, root canals and prosthodontics (dentures, bridges, crowns).
As part of his training, he received a master’s degree in Oral Biology from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.
After serving in the United States Army Dental Corps for six years, he had the opportunity to join a private practice in Port Angeles, Washington for five years. During this time, he was trained in moderate IV sedation and received his Invisalign certification.
While living in Washington, Dr. Carlile and Rose felt a need to return to Utah to be closer to family. Fortunately, they were able to return to Rose’s hometown of Manti. “We feel so blessed to make our home in such an amazing community,” they say. Rich and Rose have five children: (Dana, Mason, Hunter, Lorraine, and Eliza) and enjoy traveling, playing sports, and exploring on their free time.
Dr. Carlile is committed to providing the most up to date dental services and delivering the highest quality care and personal attention to his patients. He is experienced in providing dental care to all ages (pediatric to the elderly). He is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and Diplomate of the American Board of General Dentistry. He is also an active member of the American Dental Association and Utah Dental Association.
