Dr. Robert Agnetta

From his earliest memory as Dr. Agnetta followed his father's career in hospital administration from Denver, Colorado to Portland, Oregon, and then to Glendale, California, he always knew that he wanted to be a healthcare professional.  He received a bachelors degree in biochemistry from Pacific Union College in Napa Valley Northern California.  After receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, he practiced as a general dentist in Micronesia on the Island of Guam for three years. Returning stateside when his family started to grow, he moved with his wife, Karen, to Boise, Idaho where he established a successful private practice while they raised their two children, Alison and Evan.

In 1996, Bob had the opportunity to specialize and again attended Loma Linda University where he achieved his masters degree in Orthodontics. Upon completion of his residency he returned to Boise, Idaho and established a busy private practice as an Orthodontist.  During his professional tenure, Dr. Agnetta has consistently kept up to date by attending continuing education courses. Since graduation he has been a member of several dental organizations including the American Dental Association, Board Certified member of the American Association of Orthodontics and has recently been appointed as a director in the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists (PCSO).

Why orthodontics? The most rewarding aspect of dentistry for Dr. Agnetta is when he can help a person succeed in life by improving their self-confidence. Orthodontics is a field that can visibly do this, and it is extremely gratifying to witness his patients develop into more confident and self-assured individuals.

During the times Bob is not at the office, he is most likely devoting his time to family endeavors.  He enjoys being busy and is always looking for ways to help his family and friends. He has enjoyed mountain and cross country biking, water and snow skiing, and is an avid Bronco (Denver and Boise State University) football fan fueled by the good memories and good times he has enjoyed in those cities.  The New York Jets were added to that favorites list when they drafted one of his favorite BSU players in the first round two years ago.

He loves to travel and his favorite place so far is New Zealand, where they visited Karen’s extended family and watched his children jump off of tall buildings, bridges, and out of a perfectly good airplane. Still top on his wish list of travel destinations is India, China, the Himalaya's and spending more time on more warm, tropical islands.
