I graduated from a Dental Assisting program in California. It has been over ten years and I love helping people Improve their dental health. I have worked with Dr. Bauter for 5 years. In that time I have become an E4D Specialist, which allows our office to make same day crowns and onlays. I am passionate about expanding my professional knowledge and keeping up with dental technology.
I moved to the United States from Ukraine in 2001. I speak Russian and Ukrainian fluently. I am happily married and my husband and I have 3 beautiful daughters! When I am not making crowns I am with my girls. We love to dance, sing and learn to play the piano together. I also enjoy cooking new recipes and traveling.

Dental Hygienist

I have been a Dental Hygienist for 12 years, Eleven of those years have been spent in this office! I am an Idaho native. I graduated from Centennial High school and then attended Apollo College to study Dental Hygiene. I am married to Vaughn and we have a beautiful daughter, Scarlett. We have a ranch in Eastern Oregon and spend a lot of our weekends there working on the land and taking care of the cows, horses, sheep, pigs and chickens. I also love anything crafty and creative. Recently, I love photography and try to do as much of it as I can.
This office is my home away from home. I love coming to work and being able to see the beautiful Loggers Creek out the window. I enjoy helping patients feel pampered and they enjoy having their teeth cleaned. I feel blessed to work with my great team and to know so many wonderful patients who have become friends over the years.

Summer | Eagle Dentist Office

Summer

Office Manager of Eagle

I have the privilege of working in both the Boise and Eagle dental offices. I have been part of Dr. Bauter's team since 2016. I graduated from Chemeketa Community College in 1996, and was a dental assistant in Oregon for many years before taking a break to be with my young children. I am happy to be back in the dental field. It's wonderful to work in a practice where the doctors and staff are focused on each patient as an individual.
My high-school sweetheart and I have been married over 20 years. We have four beautiful children. They keep us busy in the best possible ways. My favorite thing about livling in Idaho is having all four seasons. Outside of work I love date nights, baking, traveling and spending time with my family.

Emily

Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist since 2005 after graduating from Idaho State University. I love working in the dental field and was excited to become a part of Dr. Bauter's team in October of 2016. I enjoy interacting with patients and having the opportunity to help them improve and maintain their oral health, leading to their increased overall wellness. Some of my interests outside of work include skiing, hiking, camping, biking, concerts, sports, running, spending time with family, reading and traveling, so apparently there aren't many things I don't enjoy or won't try....maybe I'll see you on the slopes!

Kristi

Dental Hygienist

I was born in Boise, Idaho and have lived here all my life. In 2011 I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Dental Hygiene. My full-time job is being a mom to my three children.
When not working I can often be found at the lake in the summer or on the slopes in the winter. I enjoy the opportunity to work in Dr. Bauter's office and the many great people I meet that come through its doors.

Gina | Boise Dentist Office

Laura

Dental Assistant

I have been a Registered Dental Assitant for over 20 years. By chance, I started to work for Dr. Bauter in a temporary capacity after retiring from dentistry three years ago. However, I enjoyed working with Dr. Bauter and his team so much that I decided to work here full time when the position presented itself. I am passionate about patient care and truly enjoy building personal relationships with my patients. I enjoy making sure our patients receive quality care, service, and attention. One of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry is seeing how changing a patient's smile can transform their lives.
In my free time I enjoy oil painting, reading, gardening, and spending time with my family. I am married with two grown children, four grandsons, two dogs and two cats.

Talese

Dental Assistant

I grew up in the beautiful small town of Payson, Arizona, the Pine Top Forest. I moved here right after graduating high school and fell in love with Boise! I now have three rambunctious children whom I love. My career as a dental assistant alows me to support and spend quality time with them. I've always loved beautiful smiles and now I get to be a part of that on a daily basis, while meeting fantastic friends along the way.
