The Chocolate Drawer and Other Favorites: What Our Hygienists and Office Staff Love About Summit

The Chocolate Drawer and Other Favorites: What Our Hygienists and Office Staff Love About Summit
We’ve been wondering what your favorite things about Summit Dental are, so we thought we’d share a few more of ours as well. Here are three of our hygienists’ and office staff’s favorite things about working at Summit Dental Group.

 

The chocolate drawer. One of our office’s longest traditions, the chocolate drawer is a place for everybody to grab their favorite piece of candy. It is full of any and every kind of chocolate, from Twix to Milky Way to Hersey chocolate bars. We all take turns filling the drawer as well so it always has a good stock, just what we need if we’re having a rough day or need a late afternoon pick-me-up. We can’t quite remember how it started besides the fact that we have an office full of women, so of course chocolate is a great idea!

 

Office field-trips. These trips are a great time for us to hang out and relax together while creating a solid team environment. They may be as simple as a few rounds of Frisbee golf, or we might make a longer day out of it by floating on the river. One year we even rented a bus and went down to Jackpot to check out the concerts and casinos! Made to bring us together as a team, these fieldtrips include some of our favorite memories of Summit Dental.

 

The Summit gang. Of course the staff and team at Summit are what make working at this dental office such a great experience. We get along so well together and have such a great work atmosphere. You’ve already heard some of our favorite places to get together for lunch or drinks so you know what a great time we can have! In addition to going out together after work or during lunch, we also like to throw together a girls’ getaway where we go out for dinner or try a new project. Some of our favorite times include going to a ceramics place to paint pottery, or heading to Need to Bead for some creativity.

 

With something like a chocolate drawer, you have to know that Summit Dental Group is a great place to work with an environment that is hard to beat, whether for us or for you as our patients. Of course, something like a chocolate drawer or office fieldtrip is just the cherry on top of a great working environment, made possible by our amazing team of dentists and staff!

Privacy, Comfort, Technology: A Perfect Recipe for Great Dental Patient Rooms!

Privacy, Comfort, Technology: A Perfect Recipe for Great Dental Patient Rooms!
With the new office opening on August 1st, we’d love to share more about what makes the new office so impressive! You’ve already heard about the great location and our Boise dental office’s amazingly friendly environment, so now we’d like to share three important things about our new patient rooms:

 

Privacy. Floor-to-ceiling walls make sure every patient has the privacy they need during their dental visits. With private patient rooms, patients will not be disturbed by other’s appointments, and patients will not have to worry about sharing space. A quiet and peaceful environment makes every appointment better for the doctor, patient, and family members! Don’t forget about our private patient check-in and check-out as well.

 

Comfort. Not only is each patient room very private, our patient rooms are also spacious and relaxing. Appealing wall colors, dark wood floors, and plenty of natural light make these rooms warm and inviting. Our patient rooms are also easily accessible from the waiting room, so no squeezing around furniture or zigzagging through several narrow hallways.

 

Technology. Of course, what can help a patient relax more than a movie or TV show? Each patient room is equipped with a flat screen television attached to the ceiling, and patients can choose from our many satellite TV channels, or they can decide on a movie to watch during the entire appointment (we have plenty of options for kids and adults). So be sure to bring your headphones!

 

Not only do we offer the latest technology for watching movies, we are also proud to have top-of-the-line dental technology throughout our Boise office. Each patient room is equipped with the latest dental technology so that every appointment can run smoothly, without relying on borrowing equipment from room to room.

 

Between our beautiful and natural room designs, private patient rooms and check-in, and latest technology, we are confident every patient will feel comfortable and relaxed at our new office space. Don’t just take our word for it, though—stop by and check it out for yourself! We’d love to say hello and show you around.

Boise Dentists: New Things to Love

Boise Dentists: New Things to Love
With an official move-in date of August 8th, we at Summit Dental are listing off our favorite things about the new Boise dental office. First things first—location!

Located at the corner of Shoreline Drive and Americana Boulevard, our new Boise dental office is even easier to get to from the downtown area and from out of town. For those who need to make a dental appointment in the middle of the workday, our location in downtown Boise makes it easy for professionals to leave work and come into the office. In fact, the drive from Central Downtown or the Westside District is under four minutes! Our close location to the Connector, however, makes it easy for those coming in on I-184 to get into town and to the office quickly. The drive is only five minutes from the junction of I-84 and I-184 at the west of town.

Foot and bicycle traffic will have just as easy a time with our location along the Boise Greenbelt in Ann Morrison Park and Kathryn Albertson Park. Pedestrians and cyclists can easily reach our office by crossing the river and walking east for a half block. Easy access to bike parking makes our new dental office an even friendlier place for patients coming via bicycle. Of course, increased parking offers better convenience to our patients who drive to our Boise dental office as well. All parking is well lit.

Once you get inside the building, our new modern facility is spacious and energy-efficient. Two waiting rooms (including a special waiting room designed for kids), and private patient check-in and check-out give you a relaxing and private environment before and after appointments. Private and spacious patient rooms makes sure your appointment is relaxing and enjoyable as well (we can’t want to tell you more about our patient rooms next week!). Efficient and effective temperature control also makes sure that all patients are comfortable no matter when their appointment is.

We are certain our new Boise office location will help patients get to and from our office even easier. Be sure to stop by our Grand Opening Open House on August 8th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. We can’t wait to show you around!

Boise Dentists: A New Office with a Familiar Feel

Boise Dentists: A New Office with a Familiar Feel
While we are so excited to show off the new space and equipment of our new Boise office this month, we are so glad that some things will make the transition with us, like our fun-loving office environment and friendly staff. Every part of our office aims to make patients feel comfortable and welcome, and we pride ourselves on listening to their specific situations and needs. After all, we believe that patient relationships are the core of who we are! Here is a list of things we are glad to keep:

 

A welcoming waiting room. Not only will we have a comfortable waiting room, the space will have expanded so that kids can have fun at the dentist with a kid-friendly area complete with soft flooring, toys, and a television that shows favorite Disney and Pixar films.

Patient-centered staff. If anything, being in a space that is tailored to be exactly what we need may make us even more enjoyable to be around! We don’t just want to take care of your teeth; we want to hear about your family, your summer vacation and everything in between. Our patients are the heart of our work, so we want to form long-lasting relationships that allow us to really know our patients!

 

A fun-loving office environment. With such an outgoing staff, it is hard not to catch the atmosphere of fun that our Boise dentists, hygienists, and office workers create. Office staff at the front desk welcome patients into the office before our hygienists sit and talk with them in the dental chair. Finally, our Boise dentists are personable and relaxed. If you want to see just how much fun we have hanging out together, head to our Staff page to see pictures of our dentists, hygienists, and office staff. Whether it is our interaction with you or with each other, you can’t help but notice that we love our job.

 

We may be moving to a new building, but our signature office environment full of welcoming spaces and friendly staff is one thing we are certainly excited to be taking with us. What are you hoping to see in the new Boise office?
