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

Happy Mother’s Day From Your Boise Dentist!

Happy Mother’s Day From Your Boise Dentist!

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

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!

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!

Our Favorite Boise Shops for Dessert!

Our Favorite Boise Shops for Dessert!

Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? We love a good cup of coffee or a delightful pastry, so here are our Boise dentists’ favorite places to go for coffee or dessert!

Our Boise staff love their coffee and can recommend several places around town where you can great mocha or regular coffee. Stop by Dutch Brothers for a latte on the go on your way to work, or choose one of the delicious monster scones at Big City Coffee when walking around downtown Boise. We also think Moxie Java offers some of the best blended iced coffees, perfect for hot summer weather! For a little more of the sweet stuff, we have to recommend the donuts and coffee at DK Donuts. This place has been around forever and still serves some of the best and freshest donuts in town!

A’Tavola is one of our favorite restaurants in all things—from lunch to dessert! The atmosphere, the gourmet food, and the sweets make it a great place. They serve locally-roasted coffee from Dawson Taylor, and have a beautiful display of yummy goodies to choose from. If you are looking for a great dessert date or a place to meet a friend, stop here for unique and delicious pastries.

If you love taking the kids to get ice cream or milkshakes, make sure you get the best sundaes in town at Goody’s Goodies in Hyde Park, or head to Blue Cow or U-Swirl for a great frozen yogurt. Our Boise dentists and staff love Goody’s not only for their great ice cream and old-fashioned feel, but also for their excellent location. We love the historic neighborhood, full of antique stores and specialty shops for browsing, in addition to its several summer festivals and events. When you are wondering where to take your kids for a frozen yogurt, we love Blue Cow for their unique flavors like peppermint stick and eggnog, while U-Swirl is great with Candy treats like Reese’s frozen yogurt, in addition to having other seasonal flavors.

While we love to go out for a cup of coffee and a donut or ice cream, we also know the importance of taking care of our teeth after eating something sweet.  It is always best to brush your teeth right away, but when this is not possible, at least swish with water and chew sugar free gum or mints, as this will help stimulate saliva flow to help buffer and clear the sugary treats.

We hope you enjoy a dessert from one of our recommendations! What are some of your favorite places to snack?
