Dr. David L. Cantwell, DDS


© Atlantis Dental Care

Dr. Cantwell graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry.  After completing dental school, he completed an Advanced Dental Residency in oral, periodontal and endodontic surgery.

Commissioned in 1997 as a Dental Officer in the United States Air Force, Dr. Cantwell cared for military families and retirees while stationed both home and abroad, and was awarded several military decorations.  In 2001 Dr. Cantwell was awarded Dental Officer of the Year for all of the United States Air Forces in Europe.

Following his military service, Dr. Cantwell opened his private practice as a Boise Dentist, settling with his wife and five children in Idaho to be closer to their extended family.

Dr. Cantwell is an active member of the American Dental Association.  After hundreds of hours of post-graduate study and testing, Dr. Cantwell was awarded the prestigious Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry certification (FAGD), one of only 10 dentists to achieve this in the treasure valley and fewer than 5% of all dentists nationally.

He is an experienced dental implant surgeon, a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, awarded Fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and has completed the Misch Implant Residency with training in advanced bone grafting and implant surgery.

Dr. Cantwell is also one of a small percentage of dentists who have completed postgraduate training at one of the world’s premiere continuing dental education institutes, The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education.  He is one of only three dentists in all of Idaho to hold this distinction.  The comprehensive examination you receive in this office will probably be unlike any you have received before.

Dedicated to providing optimal dental care in the most relaxing, enjoyable environment possible, Dr. Cantwell and his staff help their patients along their journey toward achieving and maintaining sustainable oral health and a beautiful smile.

Erin – Dental Hygienist

“I love getting to meet new patients and work my magic to make their smiles sparkle!”

An Idaho girl through and through, she loves to get out and go. You might catch Erin backpacking in the Sawtooths, mountain biking at Camel’s Back Park, or down at BoDo with her husband and daughter grabbing a bite to eat.

You’ll never meet a more kind and gentle hygienist than our lovable Erin. She follows in the footsteps of her older sister, also a hygienist. Erin works with our team to make sure that your experience is nothing short of perfect.

Jacque – Dental Hygienist

Jacque is an amazing clinician. To be perfectly honest, we almost didn’t hire Jacque when we found out she was from Michigan. Dr. Cantwell is a Buckeye (Ohio State University).

However, Jacque quickly won us over with her amazing clinical skills and experience. Combine that with wonderful patient understanding and a gentle but thorough touch, and we have rave reviews from her patients. Jacque is a welcome addition to our team. She loves Idaho adventures with her husband and two children.

PS: It turns out her family are Michigan State fans, not U.of Michigan, so now Dr Cantwell has an easy conscience.
