The Utah Valley Family Medicine Residency program in Provo, Utah was home to Dr. White during residency training from 1999-2002.  Prior to residency he was awarded the degree of Medical Doctor from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas.  Additional degrees were earned at the University of Utah, Master of Public Health, in 1994; and at Brigham Young University, Bachelor of Science (Microbiology) in 1993 (Go Cougars!!). 


In addition to Dr. White’s medical practice, he has served as a Health Policy Fellow with the United States Senate and a consultant with the Clark County Health District (now SNHD).  He has worked in a wide variety of clinical settings including urban medical centers, rural hospitals, pediatric hospitals and clinics, emergency departments, suburban practices, nursing homes, urgent care facilities and with NCAA sports teams.



Dr. White served a two year mission in Spain for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  This is one of his greatest achievements and as a result he is also fluent in Spanish.  He has lived in many parts of the country, but always longs to return to Laie, Hawaii where he grew up.  Surfing is in his blood, but too infrequently a part of his activities.  As a father of four children, Dr. White and his wife Jennifer keep a very active extracurricular calendar.  The White Family is a primary motivator behind the success of Ensign Family Medicine and the personalized care Dr. White provides to his patients – He treats everyone as a member of the family.
