Dr. Michael Lynn Gurney DDS, MS

Dr. Gurney received a Bachelors of Science degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in 2005. In 2009, he successfully completed dental school at Creighton University School of Dentistry, receiving the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). Dental school fueled his passion for dental implant and comprehensive dental therapy, so he continued his dental training at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry with a three year Advanced Prosthodontic Residency Program (Click here to Read a Letter of Recommendation from OSU Professor Dr. Svensson).

In 2012, he completed his training by receiving a specialty certificate in Prosthodontics as well as Masters of Science (MS) in Dentistry for his research related to clinical implant dentistry.

“I find great satisfaction in helping people with their dental needs. I feel it is essential for those seeking dental treatment to fully understand their current dental situation and their options prior to treatment. This is accomplished by establishing a great patient-doctor relationship and through proper treatment planning. I’m committed to providing the best possible dental treatment available by keeping up with the current dental research and sharing that information with others.”



Dr. Gurney was born and raised in the greater Boise area and is happy to be back. He and his wife are excited to share the joys of Idaho living with their young family. Spending time together as a family is what truly brings satisfaction and joy to their lives.
