About Chris:

Dr. Chris was born and raised right here in Utah and spent his youth running around in the mountains. That love of the outdoors is alive and well today. Outside of the office, you’ll find him doing every type of outdoor activity from golfing or dirt biking to skiing, mountain biking, gardening, and hiking. If it can get wet or dirty, Dr. Chris is on board.

He received a degree in Medical Biology from the University of Utah before moving to Ohio to complete doctoral training at The Ohio State University. After completion, Dr. Chris came back to Utah and practiced general dentistry for six years. During that time, he realized that kids are a lot more fun to hang out with than adults, and pursuing a specialty in pediatric dentistry was the smart move. That decision took him away from Utah once again, this time to Yale University for two years of pediatric residency training at Yale New Haven Hospital. Dr. Chris is a board-certified specialist in pediatric dentistry and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Parent Feedback

Who would you trust with your 1 pound baby? What about your nine year old son or perhaps your four year old daughter with ADHD? I highly recommend Families First Pediatrics. We have seen several of their providers but have been a patient of Dr. Cox since 2011. He is very attentive, professional, caring and has always taken EXCELLENT care of our children. The office staff is friendly and caring and even the billing office is amazing. 😂. The office generally has same-day appointments available in emergencies which I have needed to use several times over the years. The office has also become very automated and up-to-date with their technology and communication abilities. I feel grateful to have such a AMAZING pediatricians office following my children’s health. It’s nice to know we have knowledgeable, professional and caring doctors who have never let us down in 13 years. Thank you so much family first especially Dr. Cox.
