Dr. Luke Jacobsen, DDS, has joined Dr. Rich Davis, DDS, and the staff at West Valley Natural Dentistry, in Boise.
Jacobsen was born and raised in Boise. As a presidential scholarship awardee, he attended California Lutheran University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biology with an emphasis in pre-medicine. He continued with his dental education at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, recognized as one of the top U.S. cosmetic and dental schools.
Jacobsen most enjoys the personal inter-action with each patient, discussing their wants and needs, educating them and delivering the highest standard of treatment with an ethical approach. He treats every patient like family. Considering that time is valuable, and many people have reservations about visiting the dentist, he has become proficiently trained in CEREC technology, providing streamline patient care for crown and onlay delivery in a single appointment visit for the patient.
Jacobsen’s extended training through Lutheran Medical Centers Advanced Education in General Dentistry has allowed him to become proficient in endodontic therapy, as well as routine and surgical extractions, making it easier to complete treatment without the process of referral.
The most rewarding aspect for Jacobsen is watching the transformation of the patient’s attitude and increase in self-esteem. He states, “In order to achieve harmonious balance in treatment outcomes, you must engage the patient and become more than their doctor—you must be their confidant and advocate.”
