Dr. Shane Porter

General Dentist and Contributing Expert

Dr. Shane Porter, DMD, was born and raised in Idaho. He graduated at the top of his class at Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry, earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree while amassing many academic and clinical awards.

Dr. Porter has more than 15 years of both general dental and surgical experience. In addition to traditional dental education, he served as an officer in the United States Army Dental Corps and completed a two-year advanced surgical education and general dentistry residency. 

Dr. Porter has a distinction that only 1% of US dentists hold: board certification by the American Board of General Dentistry. 

He has a clear passion for providing excellent dental care, and Dr. Porter firmly believes that quality care starts with building a compassionate relationship with patients. 

When he’s not at work, you can probably find him in the kitchen cooking for his family and friends. He loves anything and everything Boise State, and Dr. Porter and his wife and children take time to travel, enjoy sports, and the occasional drive-in movie.
