Robert W. Hendricks

Robert W. Hendricks

DDS

View Bio

Dr. Hendricks grew up near Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn State University and received his Dental Degree from Georgetown University. For twenty five years, Dr. Hendricks served as a dentist with the United States Coast Guard assigned to many duty stations throughout the United States beginning with the US Coast Guard boot camp in Cape May New Jersey. From there he and his family traveled to New Orleans, La., Yorktown Va., Astoria, Oregon, and Traverse City Michigan. After retiring, Dr. Hendricks and his wife Linda moved to Boise and not long afterwards two of their three daughters followed and now call Boise home. Of all the places they have lived, they have found Boise to be the best place of all.

Dr. Hendricks is very fortunate to have received years of advanced dental training while with the Coast Guard and has made a lifetime commitment to continuing education. Dental techniques are rapidly changing and through his membership in premiere study clubs, he is constantly upgrading his skills in order to provide the latest techniques to his patients. Although there are many new and exciting advances in dentistry, experience has also taught him that basic dentistry is often the best treatment.

When not in the dental office, Dr. Hendricks can be found playing golf with his wife and friends, fishing, biking and hiking. However, his favorite pass time is skiing at Bogus Basin where he helps with events and long term planning as a member of Bogus Basin Auxiliary Board.
