Facial and Oral Surgery Associates has been in business in Pocatello since 1949. It has been in business in Blackfoot for the past year.
"We've always had a very good relationship with the doctors and dentists here in town, but it was good timing for opening a satellite office," said Dr. Mark Baker, who joined with Dr. Shawn Jepsen in welcoming guests to a Chamber After Hours event at their offices in the Parkway Plaza on Wednesday.
"Our patients like that they don't have to travel now," Dr. Baker continued.
"We've been very well received since we came in," Dr. Jepsen added.
Dr. Baker is a native of California, but received his undergraduate training at Ricks College and BYU. He received his dental training in Missouri, then came to Pocatello in 1992.
Dr. Jepsen is from Pocatello. He graduated from Pocatello High and Idaho State University before getting his dental training in Kentucky. He served 10 years in the US Army before returning home to Idaho.
Facial and Oral Surgery Associates is open on Wednesdays.
