Prior to this, he attended Southern Utah University, where he received his undergraduate training in history and biology.
Dr. Morrell has over 25 years of experience and extensive training in general and cosmetic dentistry.

He loves the diversity of learning and working in all areas of the dental field, and practices the newest advancements in cosmetic dentistry, implants, no drill fillings, root canals, crowns, dentures & laser technology.
His office is mercury-free, using composite fillings and shades to compliment the tooth’s natural color and structure, giving superior function and appearance. He is diligent in following advanced research and development in leading edge techniques and equipment while implementing their use, skill and precision.

A Utah native, Dr. Morrell grew up as a Boy Scout, Sprouts fan and drumming enthusiast. After 12 years in Alaska, he added fishing and rafting to his list of pursuits. Alaska is the perfect place for an avid outdoorsman like Dr. Morrell, and often he can be seen skiing, hiking and exploring with his family.
