Dr. Clint Wire
Dr. Clint Wire grew up in a small rural town just outside of Olympia, Washington. Ever since he was young, he has always loved the outdoors. During his childhood, he could be found building treehouses, riding bikes and exploring the mountains with his dog. While in high school, most of his weekends were spent with his family snow skiing, riding motorcycles, boating and attending sports camps. Though probably better at driving the cart than playing, he’ll always accept an invitation to play golf as well!
In trying to give back to the community, he served as a proctor care guardian for over a dozen at-risk youth for several years while attending dental school. During his time living Salt Lake City, he continued to enjoy playing on intramural sports teams and being in the mountains. His dental school teams even won the University of Utah intramural championship for three different sports in the same year! After attending orthodontic residency in Iowa, he moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, where he was able to continue his hobbies of snow skiing and riding dirt bikes in the Rocky Mountains — and practicing orthodontics. He is super excited to be here in Coeur d’Alene and experience all the outdoor activities the area has to offer. Whitewater rafting, wake boarding, hiking, mountain biking, Dr. Wire is up for anything!
Dr. Wire completed his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at Brigham Young University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He then went on to obtain his dental degree from the University of Utah, graduating with honors at the top of his class. While there, he served as the senior class president, worked to institute an advanced orthodontic course and helped to publish research on the correction of childhood facial fractures. He was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society, which signifies his being in the top 5% of all dental school graduates.
He went on to complete his specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Iowa while serving as the chief resident for the orthodontic program. Dr. Wire is a Board Certified orthodontist who is humbled by the opportunity to treat you and your loved ones and is eager to devote his time and attention in order to provide the very best orthodontic care.
