Jonathan W. Bauter, DDS
Dr. Bauter is a graduate of Creighton University dental school in Omaha, Nebraska. He did his undergraduate study at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. He is a huge Bulldog’s fan. He met his wife, Ashlee, in Sun Valley, Idaho and they were married there in 2006.
Dr. Bauter purchased his father’s practice in Carson City, Nevada in 2007. In 2008, their son Samuel was born. After living in Nevada for 5 years, the Bauters were looking to move to Boise, Idaho, where Ashlee was born and raised. Ashlee’s entire family lives in Boise and it is important to the Bauters that their children be raised close to cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. They moved to Southeast Boise in 2011.
In January of 2012, Bridget was born just 5 days prior to Dr. Bauter buying Dr. Brady and Dr. Shellworth’s practice. They feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful practice with such kind and health conscious patients! They have never looked back, and since have enjoyed the smaller, slower paced practice compared to what they had in Nevada. They love Idaho and enjoy being so close to family, nature and the numerous outdoor activities that are practically in their backyard.
