The son of an Air Force
physician, Dr. Hank Willis spent his early years all over the country,
as well as abroad. He lived in such places as Texas, North
Carolina, Maine, Mississippi, Germany, Michigan, New Mexico, and
Washington. These formative years in different places gave him
an appreciation for people from all walks of life, amiable
adaptability in unfamiliar circumstances, and confident
decision-making skills. This nomadic beginning sparked a lifelong
quest for travel and adventure, but it also drove Dr. Willis to seek
out a place in which to settle permanently. He was tired of
moving every 2-4 years!
In 2003, Dr. Willis
graduated from the University of Washington dental school in Seattle.
He then completed a one-year General Practice Residency, also in
Seattle, before moving his young family to beautiful Bonners Ferry,
Idaho in July 2004. He quickly decided he never wanted to
leave. After serving the community for almost 3 years at a
non-profit clinic, he opened the doors to his private practice in
Dr. Willis goes to great
lengths to stay current with the latest
advancements in high quality dentistry.
He attends continuing education courses annually, and he is
constantly seeking ways in which to educate himself and his staff in
order to provide an unrivaled level of
office is equipped with digital x-ray
which allows for greater diagnostic accuracy and a greatly reduced
level of radiation exposure. They also utilize digital
charts and are
moving toward becoming a paperless office.
Dr. Willis truly cares
for the comfort of his patients. While his focus is on excellent
care, he has a special gift for delivering his services with empathy
He and his staff strive for the entire experience to be a positive
one, from the moment a patient steps into the waiting room until the
completion of treatment.
When he's not in the office, Dr. Willis can be found spending quality time with his four children: Eika, Henry, Evangeline, and Jude. They enjoy hiking around the beautiful mountains, skiing, ultimate frisbee, and the little things in life. At times during the fall Dr Willis disappears into the woods for hunting.
