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.
Eliza grew up in Boise and was elated to return here to raise her family. She loves connecting with people in our community and helping them find hope in a different kind of dental experience here at Restoration Dentistry. The best part of her job is getting to make so many new friends while educating them about our dental services.
Our marketing director, Eliza, is Dr. Clayton’s wife and they have two boys ages 3 and 5. Together, they enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and playing on the river. A fun fact? She loves connecting with other women and supporting them, and would love to become a birth doula one day.
Tessa is #4 of 5 kids and was raised half in the Treasure Valley and half in Northern Utah. As the office manager at Restoration Dentistry, she loves seeing the difference and relief patients achieve from easy access to great dental care. Tessa also enjoys connecting with our visitors and creating a safe space where they feel comfortable from start to finish.
Outside the office, she stays busy with her husband and kids. When she has time to herself, she loves to decorate cakes (you can find her work at @ollimaicakesOpen Instagram page (open in new window)). A fun fact? Tessa’s bucket list includes traveling to Melbourne, Australia for the Australian Open.
“I decided to join this awesome team because Dr. Clayton has such a passion and you can feel how excited and inspired he is and it’s easy to get excited with him and understand his vision.”
In her spare time, you’ll likely find Monica somewhere with friends playing volleyball (whether it’s indoors or outdoors). She also likes to spend time with family; this includes dirt biking, snowmobiling, hiking, camping, skiing, boating, fishing, and rock climbing. Monica also loves to travel, and her favorite quote is, “Life is not happening to you; it’s happening for you.”
In her free time, Nicole stays busy with her husband; they have three children and a dog. They like to spend time together enjoying all the beautiful things Idaho has to offer. She also likes crafting, cooking, and shopping. Nicole’s favorite quote is, “Being positive isn’t pretending everything is good; it’s seeing the good in everything.”
In her free time, Katie loves anything outdoors-related, especially during the summer, spending as much time as possible on the lake and river, swimming, boating, or kayaking. During the winter, she stays busy with her family at various Boise State sporting events. Katie’s married and has three children, and she’s semi-fluent in American Sign Language.
