MEET FARMINGTON'S PREMIER ORTHODONTIST - THE MYTH...THE LEGEND... DR. DEREK GRAFF
I love our community and the people in it. I love watching our Patient’s lives change as their smile transforms! I feel strongly that each of us has the capacity to help and lift those around us. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be engaged in such a positive, life changing service.
At Graff Ortho we are perfectionists. We have a specific level of quality that we feel each patient deserves. Our team works very hard to provide each patient with a comfortable, efficient and uplifting Orthodontic experience using the highest quality and most modern equipment available. It sounds cheesy, but your “Perfect Smile” is literally what makes us smile!
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
I was accepted into dental school early and received my Bachelor’s degree from Nova Southeastern University.
My orthodontic residency was completed at the University of Colorado.
Although my formal education is complete, I regularly complete continuing dental and orthodontic education in order to sharpen my skills and to stay abreast of the latest methods and technologies. As part of my continuing education, I am actively involved with many local and national professional organizations. I wish to offer my patients every advantage in treatment to ensure not only a beautiful and lasting smile, but also a comfortable and efficient experience from beginning to end.

I grew up in St. George, UT, and I love living in Farmington.
My greatest love is my family, and I spend as much time with them as I can. My beautiful wife, Kristy, and I have a son named Shandon, and four daughters named Jacei, Kennedy, Sydney, and Madison. We love spending time outdoors, and I especially enjoy hunting, fly-fishing, camping, and hiking. In addition, I am a sports enthusiast, watching most sports and following sports statistics.
I also have a deep religious conviction and spend a great deal of my free time serving and participating in church. I teach lessons, plan and participate in service projects, and make weekly visits to those who are in need of an uplifting visit or help with a project.
