Intermountain Dental Specialists

Intermountain Dental - ID Specialty Group

Dear Doctor,

Intermountain Dental Specialists (IDS) is a hand-selected group of experienced Dental Specialists in partnership with private practice general dentists. With the growing number of Corporate Dental Outlets in Utah, we believe the best way to secure our future Specialist relationships in private practice is to affiliate with the best specialists.

We invite you to consider referring to this extraordinary group of specialists in Syracuse and Pleasant View.

We are seeking dentists in private practice that may have an interest in affiliating with and referring to these specialists. I would welcome the opportunity to sit down with you for lunch and describe how you can benefit from this opportunity.
