Happy Mother’s Day From Summit Dental!

Happy Mother’s Day From Summit Dental!

The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom – Henry Ward Beecher

This Mother’s Day, Summit Dental Group would like to take the time to celebrate all the many wonderful mothers in our lives. She is the one who not only gave us life, brushed away tears when we got hurt but helped each of us become the person who we are today.

Not only have our mothers nurtured and protected us over the years, but they have inspired us as well. In fact, there is no greater teacher than a mother when it comes to the classroom we call life. While a national holiday to celebrate our mothers is a nice way to honor them, there is, however, no way can we ever repay them for the unconditional, and undying love they have provided us.  

Nonetheless, Mother’s Day is an important day that provides us with the opportunity to stop what we are doing and take a moment to let our mothers know just how much they mean to us. Whether its a handful of dandelions, a bouquet of roses, or even a quick phone call, the time we take to provide our mothers with the honor they deserve, shows them that we love them just as much as they love us.

The dentists and staff at Summit Dental would also like to say “thank you” to all the great Treasure Valley moms out there for being so wonderful during their child’s Boise dental visits. While they say “a mother’s work is never done”, we want you to know that even if it’s driving your kids to regularly scheduled appointments, or just providing support by hanging out in the waiting room during your child’s treatment, it’s mother’s like you that light up our office!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Sincerely,
Summit Dental Group

Dr. Skip Pierce’s Retirement

Dr. Skip Pierce’s Retirement

Summit Dental would like to announce that Dr. Skip Pierce has retired from our practice as of December 16th, 2015. Skip was a wonderful addition to our dental office and always took wonderful, professional care of our patients and their families. As a compassionate and caring person devoted to his family and his practice, Skip was known for treating his patients like family while having improved the quality of dental care within the Treasure Valley community for over 40+ years. It is because of Dr. Pierce that three of our current dentists: Carson Mooney, Lance Ritchie, and Zac Richardson all decided to go into the field of dentistry having once been young patients of his own.

Dr. Pierce began practicing dentistry in 1974 having graduated from the University of Idaho in 1969 and the University of Washington Dental School in 1974. Dr. Pierce is a former president and member of the Idaho State Dental Board as well as a former president and member of the Idaho Delta Dental Insurance Board. Skip was also a Boise school board member for 12 years, as well as a one time board member of the YMCA.

Everyone at Summit Dental Group feels incredibly grateful for having worked with him and for the service and opportunity Dr. Pierce provided to so many while enriching everyone’s life that had contact with him in the process. He will always be remembered as a hardworking, committed, and friendly person. He is a true example to look for and follow. We will all truly miss his wonderful presence in our office and we wish him all of the best in his retirement!

Sincerely,
Summit Dental Group

Read About Dr. Robert Studebaker’s son’s Class Visit!

Summit Dental 2013 03 20We were pleased to have Dr. Robert Studebaker ‘s son’s class come and visit our office! Our staff had so much fun showing them what we do every day, and we are happy to share what they learned with you:

Boise Office Tour

The class got a whole tour of the office as we showed them what happens when you visit our Boise dentists. They loved our famous waiting room fish tank and our kids waiting area. A large TV, lots of Pixar movie options, and plenty of games and books are some of the favorite things you can find in our kids waiting area. When we moved into the patient rooms, the kids could see our new, spacious patient rooms that let in plenty of natural light as well.

In the Dental Chair

In one of the patient rooms, Dr. Studebaker’s son, Will, sat in the dental chair and showed his classmates how to open big so that the doctor could see and count how many teeth he had. Our staff had a great time using our “show, tell, do” philosophy to explain what happens at a dental appointment. We showed the class some of our tools and told them what they were called. We give everything in the office kid-friendly names, such as calling the water sprayer and air sprayer “rain” and “wind.” We will often let the kids feel the water sprayer on their hands so they know what it feels like. Everyone in the class was so well-behaved and had a great time sitting in the dental chair.

Learning about Kids’ Dental Care

The kids also learned how to brush and take care of their teeth.  We showed the class how to brush their teeth lightly, making sure to get all the way to their back teeth. We sometimes recommend teaching kids a song so that they can remember how long to brush their teeth as well. Finally, we talked about flossing and how important it is to keep their teeth clean. In fact, Summit has a Cavity Free Kids Club for every child who comes to their appointment without a cavity. Once a month, we draw a winner who gets two free movie tickets!

We loved having Will’s class visit our Boise office! It was so fun to show them around the office and teach them about how to take care of their teeth. Hopefully we will see some of them again soon!
