Master Dentist and Innovator
Among the first things you will notice when you meet Dr. Peckham are his boots and jeans, which are your first clue as to his relaxed and laid back attitude. Never in a hurry, or too busy to give you his undivided attention; he’ll make you feel, despite being surrounded by the latest in modern dental equipment, as if you have stepped back in time, returning to a place where you the patient are more important than the money. If you come on a sunny summer day, you’ll likely see his Indian motorcycle parked out front. Otherwise you’ll find his ’94 Dodge pickup behind the office, possibly loaded with supplies for the horse ranch he and his wife Barbara own and operate. Dr. Peckham considers it a special privilege to treat patients from all across the Inland Northwest, not only locally in Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, but western Montana, eastern Washington, and all across north Idaho as well. Dr. Peckham attended dental school in Portland, Oregon and graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University – School of Dentistry in 1985. Since then he has continued to enhance his education with experts from around the globe, including extensive training at the world’s premiere dental continuing education school, The Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida. His special interest is in solving complex dental issues resulting in teeth that look beautiful, feel great, last a life time, and support your overall health as well. He was one of the first dentists to pioneer the use of operating microscopes for dental treatment, and continues to advance the art and science of dentistry as a researcher (he is the founder and president of the Masters Dental Research Foundation) and dental consultant.
