Meet Our Doctor

Meet Dr. Cory Gaunt, D.M.D.


Dr. Gaunt is proud to be a native of Spokane. He grew up in the Wandermere area and went to Mt. Spokane High School. As the son of a dental hygienist and the grandson of a dentist, he decided after much prayer and discernment to pursue his career in the footsteps of those great role models in his life. After moving to Bellingham and Glendale for school, he welcomed the opportunity to return home to Spokane to raise his family and serve his community as a dentist. He is married with 4 young, busy children. In his free time Dr. Gaunt enjoys camping, hiking, sports, reading, barbequing, date nights with his wife, wrestling with his kids, watching the Seahawks, and volunteering with high school youth ministry.

Professionally, Dr. Gaunt is very passionate and committed to dentistry. In order to provide patients with a greater range of services, he has traveled all over the country to receive advanced training in dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, root canals, extractions, and more. He has found a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, and finds few things more professionally rewarding than transforming the smile of someone who was once embarrassed to show their teeth. He is a perfectionist who always ensures you receive the highest level of quality treatment possible.

Dr. Gaunt's Philosophy

Dr. Gaunt's practice philosophy is to give everyone the same level of concern and high quality care that he would give to his family. He is committed to ensuring you always receive an honest and accurate diagnosis, and that all necessary treatment is done as gently and minimally invasive as possible. You and your desires, needs, and concerns are Dr. Gaunt's top priority, and he promises to give of himself without reserve to ensure you are well taken care of.

“I will make every effort to ensure your oral condition is accurately diagnosed. I will always be honest with you. I will never over-diagnose, over-treat, or over-charge. I will give you options and treatment alternatives so that you can choose a plan that makes most sense to you. I will perform all procedures as gently and minimally invasive as possible. I will answer all of your questions. I will adapt my care to any specific needs or requests you have. In short, I will go above and beyond to ensure you receive the highest quality of care and that you are satisfied with your dental experience.”
