Dr. Staley

Dr. John Staley

Dr. Staley initially explored dentistry because he was intrigued by a career that did not involve being behind a desk all day. He enjoys working with his hands, problem-solving, and interacting with people—which all make the days go fast! Continuing education is important for Dr. Staley, and he enjoys keeping up with the latest techniques in dentistry. This continuously improves Staley Dental’s services and offers optimum convenience for all his valued patients.

The opportunity to raise a family and practice dentistry in Boise has fulfilled Dr. Staley’s lifelong dream. He loves living in the Boise community and feels blessed to have such a fantastic team that shares his values and work ethic.

Dr. Staley has been married to his wife, Joelle, for 27 years, and they have four daughters and one son. He loves being outdoors, golfing, skiing, cycling, and fishing in his spare time, and he can smoke a good brisket. He is also dedicated to community service through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
