If you have spoken with Dr. Orban for any length of time, you are probably familiar with his commitment to helping the community achieve improved oral health and well-being. For him, helping people relieve their pain and achieve a smile they are proud of is the most rewarding part of dentistry. Knowing this about Dr. Orban, we hope you will find it easier to strike up a conversation with him during your next dental appointment!
WHY HE BECAME A DENTIST
Dr. Orban knew he wanted to become a dentist in sixth grade. He witnessed his uncle’s success and ability to help his family through dentistry, and he wanted to be just like him when he grew up! So no, it was not necessarily his love for teeth that first inspired him to become a dentist. After shadowing multiple dentists and specialists, he realized that general dentistry was a good match for him. Dentistry in general blends science, medicine and technology while also being a hands-on discipline. General dentistry allows for variety and for building long-term relationships with patients. This last aspect of general dentistry is one of the most appealing for Dr. Orban, as he is most energized by positive interactions with patients.
Dr. Orban obtained his Bachelor of Arts in biology from Southern Adventist University and his Doctor of Dental Surgery title from Loma Linda University. After dental school, he accepted a position at a practice in North Idaho. He eventually opened his own practice in Coeur d’Alene. Dr. Orban is licensed to practice in both Idaho and Washington.
Dr. Orban is passionate about staying up to date with new advancements in dentistry. In his practice, he offers CEREC same-day crowns via CAD/CAM software, cone beam CT scan imaging, and guided implant surgery, among other cutting-edge services. Furthermore, Dr. Orban has been a part of the Implant Northwest study club for the past seven years and has taken multiple courses in implant placement and bone grafting techniques. He most recently attended an intensive training in functional occlusion at the renowned Kois Institute in Seattle, Washington. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association®, Idaho State Dental Association, Idaho Panhandle Dental Society and Academy of General Dentistry.
LIFE OUTSIDE THE PRACTICE
Dr. Orban is happily married to Manuela Orban, who earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Washington State University and works as a family nurse practitioner at Family Health Associates in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. They are extremely happy about the recent arrival of their baby girl, Noelle, in November 2018.
North Idaho offers breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, so Dr. Orban and his family enjoy the outdoors in every season. They love to go on walks and hikes, ski in the winter, play water sports, and camp in the summer. Dr. Orban also loves golf and takes every opportunity to improve his game. As mentioned above, Dr. Orban is passionate about helping those less fortunate and takes time yearly to participate in projects and mission trips that provide dental care to underserved communities.
