Dr. Eaton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Eaton "Doctor James A Eaton grew up on a small farm in Tennessee where he learned hard work, commitment, and developed a love for the outdoors—all three of which he embodies today.As a child, visits to the dentist's office were both intimidating and intriguing; however, wearing the "piggy nose" and raiding the pirate's chest at the end won him over. Being a dentist seemed pretty cool. In 2002, Dr. Eaton served a two-year religious-affiliated mission in Anchorage, Alaska where he learned to speak fluent Spanish. After his mission, James attended Brigham Young University-Idaho where he fell in love with two things: Idaho and an Idaho girl. That Idaho girl soon became his wife and he whisked her back to Tennessee to attend the University of Tennessee Dental College. During dental school, Dr. Eaton traveled to South America to provide dental services and education to the underprivileged. That eye-opening experience ignited his desire to serve and make a difference to people for the rest of his life. Dr. Eaton graduated from dental school and continued on in the field of endodontics where he learned advanced treatment techniques and management skills. As an endodontist, Dr. Eaton's most significant objective is to provide pain-free root canal treatment while still maintaining the natural tooth. Dr. Eaton is the recipient of the American Dental Association Research Award, the American Association of Endodontist Award, the Tennessee Pediatric Dental Award, and the Operative Dentistry Skills Award. He is a family focused endodontist and provides confident, caring services to every patient. Presently American Board of Endodontics eligible, Dr. Eaton has completed advanced specialty training and successfully finished two of the three steps to becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. This superlative achievement demonstrates both mastery and thorough understanding of endodontics and published literature. Additionally, Dr Eaton is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support to ensure you are in good hands at all times.When not in his lab coat, Dr. Eaton is a busy dad, little league soccer coach, and Boy Scout troop leader. He, his wife Kara, and their four children are proud to live in Boise where they can uniquely serve the community. In his spare time, Dr. Eaton loves spending time with his family, hunting (he's never met a steak he didn't like), fly fishing, and pretty much any activity that puts him outside in the solitude where he can take a break from the fast-paced world.Relevant research performed by Dr. Eaton includes an undergraduate CBCT study visualizing nano-particle sealer flow in a complex root canal system. In addition, using CBCT in a post-graduate research study, Dr. Eaton showed the affects of root canal instrumentation using different filing systems on the mesial root canals of mandibular molars and identified anatomical variance."

Dr. Eaton as well as his staff is the most professional and caring group I have ever experienced. I had an issue with a tooth and with his continued care he made sure I was out of pain. He even called me on his personal time to see if my tooth problem was resolved. I would recommend him to anyone...Read More
