A Utah native, Dr. Partridge attended Utah State University for his undergraduate education and then continued on to the University of Louisville, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine and graduated with honors. His extensive surgical training in oral and maxillofacial surgery was completed at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.
After completing surgical residency in 2006, Dr. Partridge proudly served in the United States Navy as a lieutenant commander, using his skills as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
