Dr. Nathan Sommer is passionate about dentistry. He has a heart for people who are hurting, and he takes pride in his ability to help patients who are in pain find relief.
While a student at Creighton University, Nathan spent some time shadowing a dentist from his church. He loved learning about the hands-on element of dentistry and knew then that dentistry was for him. After finishing an undergraduate degree and earning a dental degree at Creighton, he attended the University of Nebraska – Omaha where he earned his MBA.
Dr. Sommer has a wide range of skills, but is particularly interested in implant solutions that allow patients who’ve struggled in the past to be able once again to eat what they want and to look their best!
Dr. Sommer has completed his clinical residency in implant dentistry and moderate iv sedation training with the advanced dental implant institute. He is also due to receive his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in July 2023. He believes dentistry is a life-long commitment and spends hundreds of hours each year on continuing education. He’s also a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Orthodontic Society.
Dr. Sommer met his wife on a double blind date. He wasn’t initially paired with his wife, but that sorted itself out eventually! When he’s not providing outstanding dental care to patients in our Clayton office, you might find him hiking a trail, especially if there’s a waterfall nearby.
