Robert L. "Bob" Cunningham
Passion for excellence, high tech-high touch, personalized treatment, comfort, and friendly relationships are the hallmarks of an outstanding dental practice. Dr. Cunningham has lived by these principles his entire practice life. Dentistry is like chess or bridge-you can learn the rules of the game quickly, but it takes a lifetime to become a master.
Dr. Cunningham was born and raised in Southern California. For him it was an idealistic childhood with strong academics, sports, school activities and a balance between fun and work. After High School he received a sports/academic scholarship to play water polo at University of Southern California and in a short seven years he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from USC.
Dr. Cunningham practiced in Huntington Beach, California before moving to Ketchum/Sun Valley 20 years ago. Bob and his wonderful wife Suzanne have managed his Ketchum practice together ever since. They love the Wood River Valley and all the beauty and activities available here.
Bob and Suzanne have two grown children. Their daughter, Laurie, lives in Chicago with her husband Dave and two beautiful children. Laurie is a writer-editor for a law firm, while David practices family law. Their son Eric and his wife Sonnet are both architects and live in Los Angeles with their two wonderful kids. Grandparenthood is a joy!
Dr. Cunningham has been doing implant surgery and restoration since the 1970's. In addition he has extensive training in complex restorative dentistry, periodontics and oral surgery.
Candice obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene at Idaho State University. She knew from grade school that she wanted to have a career in Dental Hygiene. She wanted to be able to help people have overall health by starting with oral hygiene. She recently moved to the Sun Valley area to continue doing what she loves to do in an area where she can also enjoy the outdoors. She enjoys hiking, fishing, running, snowboarding, and anything active outdoors. She graduated high school from Emmett High, and always dreamed of living in the Sun Valley area. She is now loving living in a small community to continue her career in such a beautiful town, and being able to help the people around her.
