What To Keep In Mind When Looking for a Boise, ID Dentist

Finding the right practice for you and your family is important. When looking for a dental office, you should look for:

Patient Reviews

Knowing what real patients have to say about a dental practice helps you get a feel for the office environment and team. Some reviews from our patients include:

“Dr. Garpetti and Jill are fantastic. Very professional and caring. Everyone in the office is so caring and welcoming. Always willing to go above and beyond.”

-Terrie J.


“Wonderful staff! Every procedure has been excellent. I have never been disappointed! Thank you to all, especially Dr. Garpetti! He is just plain THE best!”

-Shannon N.


“Dr. Garpetti has been my dentist for the past three years since I moved to Idaho from Arizona. He is personable, easy to talk to & is thorough when you ask him a question. Dr. Garpetti provided me with the information I needed to resolve my chipped/cracked front tooth. My tooth looked beautiful after he fixed the crack.

Additionally, Ralynne is my dental hygienist. She is fabulous. I always feel wonderful after she cleans my teeth. I get my teeth cleaning done every four months because I have two dental insurance plans. Ralynne is a very caring, dear person. She is one of the main reasons I do business at LIFEsmiles Family. She conducts herself in a kind manner.

Lindsay, who resides in the front office area, is warm, welcoming & is always upbeat to talk to. She & I love our dogs, so we share a lot in common. Holly, the office manager, is always pleasant & happy to see me. She’s an extremely nice person who knows how to motivate her dental staff. She is refined & manages the details of the dental business effectively. My expectations are high. Primarily because I’m one of those lucky people who has perfect teeth, it’s been my pleasure to do business with LIFEsmiles.”
