About Dan:

Dan Clayton has been a board-certified pediatrician in the Salt Lake area since 2005. He went to medical school at Columbia University in New York City and then completed his residency in pediatrics at the University of California, San Diego.

Dan loves what he does for work. He enjoys working with parents and children in a positive, supporting role to assist them in finding joy in the journey and helping each child reach their potential. He enjoys diversity and building on strengths. He appreciates the opportunity to practice community pediatrics and provide everything from well child care for newborns to teens, to interventions in critically ill children. He is grateful to work with the amazing Families First Team of receptionists, medical assistants, nurses, providers, office managers, and billing staff as well as the talented pediatric specialists in our area.

When not working, Dan enjoys time with family and the outdoors. In his free time, you may run into him hiking, mountain biking, or skiing. If you ever have a good book recommendation, be sure to pass it along.

Dr. vlam is hands down the best, she always takes extra time to make kids feel comfortable,very good at explaining things and isn't afraid to share her knowledge, always finds a way to help every one. We have been seeing her for 9 years and travel an hour each way to do so. Thanks Dr. vlam!
