Our first concern is your comfort and safety, so we employ non-invasive techniques and tools wherever possible, and we eagerly embrace new technology that improves your dental experience.

The following are some of the technologies we use:

Instant Digital Scanning

A state-of-the-art scanner takes impressions of your teeth, so you’ll never experience the discomfort of having tooth impression go in your mouth.

This 3D CT scan machine is less intense, safer, faster, and more comfortable than traditional film-based x-rays.

Sedation Dentistry

Available for both children and adults


An orthodontic treatment which is faster and more affordable than traditional orthodontics (braces).

The Zoom™ Whitening System

We’ve selected the Zoom system because it is the fastest, most effective tooth bleaching system currently available.

I had all of my upper teeth restored with bonded porcelain by Dr. Gates and I love my teeth and my smile!

Debbie Michalak

Everyone from the receptionist to the dental tech to the doctor himself made my visit feel like anything but a visit to the dentist.


North Idaho Dental is different. They listen to me and only recommend what I really need. And, their work is the best! I am very happy to recommend them.


The implant-supported dentures have made a major difference in my quality of life. I smile a lot more now that I don't have to worry about how my teeth look.
