I have been going to Summit Dental since 1995. It is easily the best dentist in Boise. Wonderful staff, fantastic dentists, and a great overall feel. I have also been taking my daughter to Summit Dental for the best 8 years. They are so fantastic with her that she honest to god loves going to her appointments/checkups…. if that isn’t a resounding endorsement, I don’t know what is.

I cannot say enough good things about Summit! They are amazing! They’ve been wonderful for my husband and me, but most importantly, my kids enjoy going to see the dentist because of their kindness. They make an effort to make sure my kids feel safe and comfortable. They are perfect for the whole family.

I’ve been going to Summit Dental for over 35 years. I had a crown replacement and I am extremely picky. Dr. Richey went beyond my expectations to make everything right with the color of my crown. I am extremely happy with Summit Dental and highly recommend them. They are highly professional and very punctual! Thank you for the great service and beautiful work on my smile 🙂

Wow! What a GREAT office! I had such a great experience starting with the friendly greeter who made me feel so welcome. The doctors are so professional and very thorough, all the while being friendly and fun!! My dental assistant was so informative and made me feel so comfortable, even though I was a little nervous. I have also never had a better cleaning in my life! Jennifer is HIGHLY recommended and my teeth have never felt so squeaky clean! Lastly, the front office was so awesome, explaining all of my financial responsibilities and answering any of my million questions, with a smile on their face the whole time. Summit Dental Group is by far the best dental office I have ever been too! Thanks for all your great work, guys!!

I am blown away by the attentive care I received at Summit Dental! From reception to the hygienist and Dr. Richardson everyone was warm and welcoming. I have never had a positive dental experience elsewhere and always dreaded getting work done. Recently I started going to Summit Dental and I had to have two cavities filled. Dr. Richardson worked fast so I was out of there in less than an hour and it was virtually pain free; something I have never experienced before. I can not recommend him highly enough!

Summit Dental is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. The office is so clean and the staff is incredibly friendly. Everything in the office is first rate including the awesome fish tank in the waiting room. Once you lay down in the chair you are able to enjoy a big screen TV above your head and multiple choices on want to watch. It is basically like laying in bed watching your favorite show while getting great dental service. The doctors and hygienists are ALL great. They are super professional, honest and helpful throughout the entire process. The only real complaint I have is my dentist makes me laugh so hard during the visit that it becomes hard to sit still 🙂 I would recommend Summit Dental to anyone looking for a professional, positive, honest experience. The staff quickly become your friends and you, your family/friends/kids will start to truly enjoy going to the dentist. Thank you Summit Dental Group for doing things the right way!

I had cracked my crown over the weekend and was in pain and they were very attentive in getting it corrected! I would highly recommend this office to anyone I know. They made a bad situation into a good experience.

I am a root canal specialist who cares for patients from many dental offices around Boise and Meridian including patients from Summit Dental. I find that their patients love the doctors and staff that work there and are fiercely loyal. They do quality work and I would not hesitate seeing any of their doctors myself. They are the best of the best!

I truly believe the best part of dentistry is getting to walk through each stage of life with all the families and patients I see.”
