Meet Dr. Keith


Keith Payton, DDS

Welcome to Island Breeze Orthodontics where the vibes are always good. Here is a little information about Dr. Keith.

Dr. Keith (Payton) earned his dual degrees in Marketing and Biology from the University of Central Florida (UCF). While attending UCF Dr. Payton conducted research in Nanobiotechnology and published two papers. He then decided to attend dental school at Meharry Medical College in Nashville graduating with honors (a member of OKU). His passion for Orthodontics carried him to Case Western Reserve University in Ohio to complete his formal education obtaining a Masters of Science in Orthodontics. 

He is member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Southern Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association and the Tennessee Dental Association. 

While Florida might be where Dr. Keith spent most of his life, he has found a home in Tennessee with his wife, Felicia and their sons, Kalani and Akari. He also has one furkid Pumpernickel. When he isn’t in the office helping patients discover their beautiful smiles, he enjoys spending time with his family (near a beach), watching soccer and doing anything artistic.
