About Us

Your Local Board Certified Orthodontist

Dr. John Hintz

          Our office is committed to providing the best orthodontic care with a relaxing atmosphere. I believe that it takes a team approach, including parents and children, to achieve the best orthodontic result. Parents are always welcome to sit with their child during their appointment and I will take time to answer any questions you may have. During the course of orthodontic treatment I will stay in contact with you and will give periodic updates about treatment progress.

          I’m native to the area having grown up in Spokane WA and have been providing orthodontic care in Hayden, Sandpoint, Rathdrum and surrounding communities since 1999. I’m a veteran of the United States Army, having served in the US and Germany as a medical and laboratory technician. After the Army I returned to the Spokane area and completed a Bachelor of Science degree at Eastern Washington University. My family moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin where I attended Marquette University and received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was Valedictorian of my dental class while maintaining an evening job with a local dentist.

          After dental school I was accepted to a highly competitive orthodontic residency at Marquette University having received a certificate in orthodontics and a Master of Science degree. I was fortunate to take over an existing practice in Coeur D Alene after graduate school. While practicing I went through a voluntary process to become Board Certified with the distinction of Diplomate. I feel orthodontic treatment involves continued education and the use of proven and modern techniques/materials. As a member of an implant study club, I’m able to provide the necessary care for adult and young patients who are missing adult teeth and need implants or extensive restorations.   

Thank you for your interest in our practice for you or your child’s orthodontic care.
