Meet Dr. Craig Clayton

Your down-to-earth family and cosmetic dentist in Meridian, ID.

“There has never been a more exciting time to practice the art of dentistry.”

Nice to Meet You

Dr. Clayton grew up in Southern California in a family of six kids. From a young age, he developed a love for the mountains, desert, and wide open spaces. He has always loved riding his bike, cooking new recipes, and playing music.

Our dentist always knew he wanted to work with his hands, and at Restoration Dentistry, he does exactly that. Dr. Clayton combines the art of dentistry with his expertise to heal and restore each day.

One of his favorite parts of the day is getting to know patients like you and hearing your story, passions, hobbies, and creating long-lasting friendships.

Outside the Office

Outside of the office, Dr. Clayton and his family enjoy playing in the river in the summer, skiing in the winter, and getting outside as frequently as possible to ride bikes, hike, camp, and take walks. He also lives for mountain biking, bikepacking, and motorcycle riding. Dr. Clayton believes miles are best counted in hundreds!

If you need a break, feel uncomfortable, or have a question, I will always pause treatment and listen to you. I am on your team no matter what, and you are in control.”

Believe it or not, Dr. Clayton is a nervous patient. This anxiety contributed to him starting his journey to improve each patients’ dental experience. His own experiences with dental care led him to pursue a career focused on nature-driven, anxiety-free dentistry, that doesn’t just focus on oral care, but the total wellness of the person.

Biomimetic dentistry is a conservative approach that mimics nature in preserving more of your natural tooth structure while improving oral health and beauty.

Our goal is to give you and your family the best dental solutions through modern technology and techniques in our comfortable, spa-like office at Restoration Dentistry of Meridian, ID.
