Dr. Chris Minert is a native of the Treasure Valley, having grown up in Eagle for most of his life.

After graduating from Eagle High School, he went on to attend Boise State University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2008. Upon completing his undergraduate studies, he was accepted into the prestigious IDEP program at Creighton Dental School, completing his studies in 2012.

After dental school, Dr. Minert and his wife, Summer, moved to San Antonio, TX, where he opened a new practice. After a little over six years of hard work, Dr. Minert’s practice grew to have over 10,000 patients, 15 staff members, and three doctors.

Dr. Minert loves helping patients feel confident, happy, and positive about their smiles. His caring and compassionate personality shines through every aspect of his practice.
