Boise Dentists: Our Dentists’ Favorite Things about the New Office

Boise Dentists: Our Dentists’ Favorite Things about the New Office
A spacious office with new equipment and a better layout gives us a better environment to do our best work, but it also allows us to work together with our patients to provide the best care and give the best answers. Here are our favorite things about the new office, and how it helps us work better together with our patients:
Spacious rooms:  The new office patients’ rooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. Hardwood floors, natural light, and plenty of extra floor space and seating help patients to sit comfortably during appointments. This allows for more relaxed dentist and patient interaction, which is greatly appreciated on both sides.
Top-of-the-line technology. In addition to spacious rooms, we are very excited to work with the latest dental technology in each patient room. One of the features that is most convenient are the  large format computer displays; these are used to show patients intra-oral camera pictures of what we are seeing, and it really helps us communicate problems we are seeing in the mouth.
Many diseases cannot be seen when we examine the mouth, so these pictures and x-rays help us see small areas of decay between teeth, bone loss caused by infection or gum disease, and many other things, including the position of unerupted teeth. The large format screens allow us to then demonstrate the problems we see in the mouth so that our patients can clearly see the problem, and then we can work together to resolve it.
The Summit team. Finally, by working with such experienced clinicians, we can share ideas on treatment decisions with each other and learn from each other’s experiences. This helps us find the best possible treatment for every patient. Also, working with such a friendly and outgoing staff really helps create an enjoyable environment to work in on a daily basis.
Last but not least, we love being a part of a dental practice with such a long standing of 35 years, and which has an established reputation of being a high-quality and friendly office, with truly great patients. We are excited to carry on the Summit reputation in a new location with the same great service, staff, and patients!
