Boise Dentist - Dr. David L. Ripplinger - Victory Dental
David L. Ripplinger, DDS
Dr. Ripplinger grew up just south of Preston, Idaho in a small farming community. He has been interested in dentistry from the time he was a boy and worked in a dental office in his hometown to put him through undergraduate studies. He pursued his career choice and graduated from Marquette School of Dentistry in 2004. Dr. Ripplinger completed his dental schooling requirements ahead of schedule and was able to spend his last year working part time for a Pediatric Dentist in Wisconsin. During his time at Marquette he also founded “Smiles for the Future”, a nonprofit organization to help underprivileged kids in Milwaukee receive dental treatment.
Following dental school he took over the practice of a retiring dentist in Cortez, Colorado. Over the course of five years Dr. Ripplinger tripled the practice’s production. He is well loved, trusted and respected as a dental professional and as a friend. He is grateful for his time in Cortez, a small town with few specialists. He was often the end of the line and gained great experience in a wide field of challenging dental procedures. In January of 2011, a four-wheeler accident forced Dr. Ripplinger to sell his thriving Colorado practice. He took the opportunity to move his wife and five children closer to family and to an area that they have always loved, Boise, Idaho. He opened Victory Dental in June of 2011.
Dr. Ripplinger's love in dentistry is helping people achieve that perfect smile so they can pursue life’s challenges with confidence. He feels it is extremely important to stay on top of the best solutions for his patients. He has completed over 75 hours of continued education in implant and bone grafting procedures alone.
Dr. Ripplinger has had the great privilege of serving on several dental humanitarian trips, including trips to the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Bolivia and Guatemala. He enjoys hunting, fishing, rock climbing and working with his children on the family farm.
