Welcome to Paramount Family Dentistry

(a.k.a. Dr. Hisel and Dr. Hoidal’s Office!)

Celebrating 30 years of private practice in the treasure valley!

Dr. Hisel began Private Practice in Boise in August of 1989. His private practice began in a very small leased office building with two dental chairs and a private office in the basement. Dr. Hisel’s team consisted of his wife, Terri, at the front desk, one dental assistant and one hygienist (who is still one of our hygienists!). Most of the patients seen during those first days are still patients today and we now have the privilege of serving their grandchildren! We still have our first appointment book (on paper!) and enjoy looking at it periodically to remind us of our very first days. We are so thankful to all of our great patients who trust us with their dental needs.

We quickly outgrew our small space and relocated to Garverdale Court in 1991, doubling our capacity to 4 dental chairs. After seeing patients in that location for 10 years, we purchased the land for our current location in 2001. We immediately began the planning and building process for our new building which we occupied in January, 2003. In our new facility we integrated the newest advances in dental technology with Digital X-rays and Intra-Oral Cameras allowing us to serve our patients well while reducing X-ray exposure. Over the years our staff has blossomed to an amazing team of two Doctors and 13 Clinical and Administrative Team members. You can find out all about each of them on the Our Staff page of our website.

Dr. Eric Hoidal joined our team in July, 2008 and we became Paramount Family Dentistry. At Paramount Family Dental we pride ourselves in what we like to call a “relationship driven” dental practice. Our most important goal is to get to know our patients while at the same time providing them with the best dentistry possible. Over years we have enjoyed “growing up” with our patients and their families, while as a team our own families have grown and changed! As you enjoy reading information about each Doctor and Team member, you will find that many of us have been together for a number of years. Together as a team we have spent time white water rafting, attending local concerts and plays, at one another’s homes, shopping at the mall, and even going on a cruise!

We are very excited about the future of Paramount Family Dentistry and are thankful to each of you who are a part of our great patient family. We consider it an honor to serve you. To those of you who are our future patients, we look forward to meeting you and thank you for visiting our website.

We hope you find it informative and helpful.
