Pediatric Dentist in Kuna


Dr. Julio O. Escobar

Dr. Julio O. Escobar feel fortunate to practice dentistry since 2008. He is happy to join Kuna Kids Dentistry to continue the next phase of his career.

As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Escobar strives to improve oral health from infancy through the teen years. He believes early intervention, education and prevention are pillars to creating healthy smiles and patients who are comfortable in the dental setting. Those efforts are also key to establishing long-lasting habits and routines while minimizing the possibilities of dental fear or anxiety. Dr. Escobar knows this both as a pediatric dentist and as a parent. He is the father of two young children. Growing up in a place where access to dental care was minimal, he has made it his goal to increase access to dental care through service and obtain the best education to help his patients.

Dr. Escobar appreciates the intersection of empathetic, efficient, and conscientious clinical care with evidence-based and research-supported treatment modalities. After obtaining an undergraduate education at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2000, Dr. Escobar spent formative time as a researcher involved in the Human Genome Project at Stanford University. He then attended some of the best dental training programs in the nation. He obtained a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of California, San Francisco in 2008 and completed a Pediatric Dental Residency at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2015. Dr. Escobar was one of two Chief Residents in his UCLA cohort. Dr. Escobar became a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2016. He is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Family is at the center of every aspect of his life.  In his time away from practice, he enjoys family outdoor activities like running, soccer, hiking and paddle boarding.
