Dr. Stanton Widmer was born in Utah and raised in a small town in Wyoming. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Utah State University in 2000, a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa in 2005, and a specialist certificate in endodontics from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2008. He has contributed to furthering scientific knowledge by conducting and publishing research completed at each of the universities he attended. From 2005-2006, Dr. Widmer taught dental students three days weekly in the Admissions/Emergency department and he worked as a general dentist two days weekly in faculty practice at the University of Iowa.
He founded Treasure Valley Endodontics in 2008. From 2008-2011, he completed a rigorous, voluntary process to become board certified in endodontics. As of 2011, this was a distinction earned by fewer than 20% of endodontists nationally and by no other private-practicing endodontist in the Treasure Valley. Dr. Widmer regularly lectures in the surrounding area to teach dentists endodontic principles and techniques designed to optimize treatment success.
Stanton is happily married to his sweetheart, Amanda, and they are the parents of two girls and four boys who enrich their lives. Stanton spends most of his free time enjoying life with Amanda and their children. He also enjoys a variety of sports (alpine skiing, basketball, scuba, camping) and musical activities (voice, piano, guitar, trumpet, music composition).
