In 2005, Dr. Gurney received a Bachelors of Science Degree from Brigham Young University located in Idaho. In 2009, he successfully completed dental school at Creighton University School of Dentistry, receiving the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) Degree. Dental school fueled his passion for dental implant and comprehensive dental therapy. He continued his dental training at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry with a three-year Advanced Prosthodontic Residency Program. In 2012, he completed his training by receiving a specialty certificate in Prosthodontics as well as the Masters of Science (MS) Degree in Dentistry for the research he completed 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 the proper planning in treatment. 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 after completing schooling. Dr. Gurney and his wife are excited to share the joys of Idaho living with their family. Spending time together as a family is what truly brings satisfaction and joy to their lives.

“I, Lynn Gurney, commit myself to a continual pursuit of excellence while maintaining an open mind and always seeking to find positive solutions to the problems I may encounter. I promise to center my practice on honesty, integrity, and genuine concern for my patients while providing the best possible care for everyone that comes into my practice. I treat my patients as I would like to be treated.”

“I really love the people I get to help. It truly brings joy and hapiness to my life. I also enjoy working with the amazing people on our team. They all really care about each other and our patients.”
