Meet The Doctor

Dr. Michael Tornow

Dr. Michael Tornow is a very unique, highly decorated general dentist. He graduated with high clinical honors from Oregon Health Sciences University in 2001.

During dental school he was recruited by the United States Air Force and received a highly coveted health professions scholarship that covered most of his dental school expenses.

Subsequent to graduation, Michael completed a three-year tour of duty in the United States Air Force, which included an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at Langley Air Force Base. This training taught him I.V. sedation, wisdom teeth removal, custom denture fabrication, complex cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, and the placement of dental implants. He has used these skills daily since starting his private practice in 2004.

After his residency, Michael and his family were assigned to Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico. (Clovis’ claim to fame was the music recording studio headquarters of famed musician, Buddy Holly, who died during a 1959 plane crash along with the Big Bopper and Richie Vallens. This day of the accident is known as “The day the music died.”)

Dr. T has been highly sought after for his dental skill set and his excellent bedside manner. He explains complex dental treatment so patients understand what treatment they need and he will be performing for them.

From 2004-2019, Michael was headquartered in Farmington, New Mexico. In 2015 Michael’s team was honored as the #1 Team of the Year for the Crown Council. This honor was awarded to the best of 2,000 dental practices in North America. Michael gives 100% of the credit to his exceptional team. He was just there as a proud observer of his team’s accomplishments.

In 2017 Michael and his family decided to relocate to Highland, Utah in order to be closer to family members that were entering their advanced senior years. He loves his mother and father to the moon and back.

Dr. Tornow was the founder of Pony Express Dental that had four locations in Eagle Mountain, Daybreak, Saratoga Springs, and Alpine, Utah.

In 2021 Michael left Pony Express Dental. Subsequently, he joined forces with Sir Doug Laney and Lake Mountain Dental. They have joined forces to open Lake Mountain Dental of Eagle Mountain in order to provide the highest level of patient care to the communities of Eagle Mountain Saratoga Springs, and Camp Williams.

Michael is very passionate about dentistry. He loves to take exceptional care of his patients. A healthy win-win relationship is what Dr. Michael Tornow seeks with each of his patients. He looks forward to meeting you as a new patient and developing a lifetime relationship consistent with Lake Mountain Dental‘s core values.

A warm welcome from Dr. Tornow, Sir Doug Laney, and the team of Lake Mountain Dental.
