Too Busy for the Dentist? How We Can Help.

Think you don’t have time for the dentist? We know it can be tough to fit a Boise teeth cleaning into your schedule, but here are few ways we work to make sure that you have the time to keep your teeth and gums healthy:

Summit’s Convenient Location

We know how much easier it is to stop by our office now that we are just a walk from downtown Boise. Just take a quick drive from your downtown Boise office to see Dr. Robert Studebaker for a Boise cosmetic dentistry appointment, or get a quality Boise dentist’s teeth whitening with Dr. Carson Mooney. Idaho residents don’t have to live in Boise to take advantage of our quality service, however. Our office is located right off Interstate 184, meaning out-of-town residents can easily zip in and out of our office without getting bogged down by city traffic.

One-Appointment Boise Crowns and Bridges

Once you’ve gotten to our office, however, we make sure that you get all the work done in a day. For a crown, that means using CEREC digital impressions. How CEREC digital impression works starts with Dr. Robert Studebaker or another Boise dentist running a CEREC wand over your teeth to create a digital impression. From there, we use the CEREC digital impressions to custom-create the crown you need. It’s then sent to our in-office CAD machine that quickly and beautifully creates the perfect crown. We’ll permanently cement it in place the same day.

Quick and Efficient Appointments Thanks to Our Phenomenal Staff

If you’ve been to our Boise office, you know how incredible our office staff and hygienist team are. This is the final way we do our best to keep you happy and on-schedule. You know how hard our office team will work to ensure that you get the appointment you need when you need it. And we’re proud to say that our hygienists are some of the best in their field. If you are under a deadline, you can count on them to cheerfully and efficiently get you the care you need in the time you have!

Have any other concerns about getting the dental care you need? Chat with Dr. Robert Studebaker, or talk about your dental care options with Dr. Carson Mooney. Idaho and Boise patients like you have our entire team at your disposal so that you get the care you need. We hope to see you soon!

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!

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?

Meet Our Two Local Boise Ceramists!

Meet Our Two Local Boise Ceramists!
Investing in local Boise businesses is one of the many benefits we have as a local dentists. While we can’t wait to talk more about our favorite shops and stores, we thought it was fitting to share more about two local ceramists we work with on a regular basis.

 

Ralph Langer from Langer Dental Arts and Jack from Treasure Dental Lab take care of our ceramic work for veneers, crowns, and implants. While many dentists outsource their ceramic work to companies overseas, we take pride in keeping this business local! Not only does it allow us to work closely with Ralph and Jack to give our patients the best result, it also allows us to invest in our own community for a stronger local economy.

 

Quality Material

By using a domestic lab that makes their own crowns and veneers, our Boise dentists know they are getting quality material that is free of toxins or filler material. This knowledge allows our dentists the confidence that they are giving every patient the longest-lasting and healthiest option for a dental crown or bridge. With an overseas or foreign supplier, our dentists cannot be sure of the quality material they are getting.

 

Tailored results

Not only can our Boise dentists know they are getting pure and high-quality material, they also know that their patients are receiving the most customized results. Because we use local Boise ceramists, we can send a patient to their office for an in-person assessment. This allows Ralph or Jack to see exactly the color and contour the dental crown or porcelain veneer should have. While they usually do such a great job the first time that there is no need for a second appointment, their nearby office allows us to send a dental crown or veneer back to them if it needs a little more tweaking. This would be impossible with an overseas supplier! The final result is a unique and completely customized veneer or crown that will look identical to the patient’s other teeth.

 

A stronger community.

Finally, by using a local Boise office for our ceramic work, we are supporting and encouraging our local economy. We love our Boise community and want to help it thrive. Using a local ceramist is just one way of doing that. These local labs have such great craftsmanship they deserve to be the first pick for our office’s business!

 

We know what a great job they do at Langer Dental Arts and Treasure Dental Lab, but we would love to hear about your first-hand experience. Leave a comment here, or stop by our Facebook page to let us know how much you appreciate these great businesses as well!
