Daniel J. Cloward, DMD, MSD, MPH
Dr. Cloward takes great pleasure in doing orthodontics each day, and enjoys the personal interactions with his patients and their families. He loves seeing the transformation of his patients’ smiles during treatment and seeing their confidence grow.
He grew up near Salt Lake City, Utah, and during high school, enjoyed participating in sports such as basketball and track and field. After high school he completed a two-year volunteer mission for his church in Santiago, Chile. There, he became fluent in Spanish and fell in love with the Chilean culture. After returning from Chile, he earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from BYU in Utah. He then worked in the social work field for about four years, helping children in foster care and working to help families improve their situations.
After working for a few years, he moved with his young family to Louisville, Kentucky, where he completed a master’s degree in public health and then immediately following, completed his dental degree. After completing dental school, he decided to follow his dream of becoming an orthodontist. He completed two and a half years of additional specialty training at Saint Louis University, where he became an orthodontic specialist.
Dr. Cloward has loved living in Arizona where there is sun year-round, and he especially enjoys the fact that there is no snow to shovel. He has been married to his wonderful wife, Heather, for over 14 years, and they have four fantastic children, Tyler, Tessa, Olivia, and Jayden. When he’s not busy in the office, he loves to spend time with his family doing just about anything together.
