Meet the Doctors At Paradise Ridge Dentistry

Sutton, D.D.S. - General and Family Dentistry

Dr. Rhett Sutton was born and raised in the Southern part of rural Idaho, namely, Rexburg, Idaho. Dr. Sutton attended Brigham Young University- Idaho, where he met and married the love of his life, Samantha. He then attended and graduated from Roseman University of Health Sciences in South Jordan, Utah. In his spare time, Dr. Sutton loves to spend time with his wife, traveling, eating good food, and golfing as much as possible.

Dr. Sutton’s ultimate goal is to ensure his patients’ well-being and oral health are in harmony while making sure that their smile is something they can be proud of. He strives to make sure that everyone that steps into the office has a comfortable experience and leaves feeling happier and healthier.

Steven Vorholt - Doctor of Dental Surgery Diplomate, American Board of Oral Implantology

I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and later moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend college. I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University in 2013.

Shortly after graduation I started a private practice in the Columbus area. Immersing myself in as much continuing education as possible, I eventually developed a great passion for dental implant surgery. In 2019 after 6 years of building a successful general practice in Ohio, I followed my passion and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to take a full time position with Implant Pathway. 

In my time at Implant Pathway I rose to the positions of Chief Clinical Officer and Lead Instructor.  I created and taught the content offered in courses such as Basic Implantology, Sinus Grafting, Full Arch Overdentures, Implant Complications, 3D Printing Surgical Guides and more.  I also helped over 1,000 dentists place over 12,000 implants in my time at Implant Pathway.  I managed all follow ups and complications with the team at New Horizon Institute, and was also a lead faculty member for the NYU AEGD at the clinic.  One of my proudest professional accomplishments was the fostering of new and seasoned implant dentists through their own pathway with dental implants. 

In 2021 I received my Diplomate in the American Board of Oral Implantology.  This distinction requires that a surgeon pass a written board exam and defend 10 surgical cases to an oral exam committee, as well as fulfilling over 800 CE hours directly about dental implant therapy.  In 2022 I received my Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and was asked to present at the AAID Annual Conference for two different workshops and lectures.  I lecture nationally on all topics of dental implants and love to partake in CE from other great educators whenever given the chance.

In late 2022 I decided it was time to re-enter private practice.  I now offer my surgical skillset and mentoring mindset to practices and doctors throughout the Greater Phoenix area where I enjoy the variety of procedures and offices I get to visit providing care throughout the valley.
