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:


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

Instant Digital X-Ray

It’s 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.
