OVERVIEW

Meet Dr. Summer I love my job! Creating beautiful smiles for my patients to love is a wonderfully rewarding experience to me. To have the fortune and privilege of treating patients in the South Bay community I call home makes it all the more special. It was here where I met my husband, Matt, where we were married (American Martyrs) and where we are raising our daughters, Ahnika and Tegan. I am truly blessed! The Founding of Summer Orthodontics My vision for Summer Orthodontics is the result of years of education and experience. As a California native enduring Philadelphia winters for my orthodontic residency, the dream of an office with a view of the Pacific ocean motivated me through cold, winter nights. As a practicing orthodontist, the importance of staying current on the latest advances in orthodontics has been a top priority. Today's orthodontic treatment is truly amazing. Every year there are new advances being made. I make sure I have the most up-to-date training to achieve the best possible results. As a mom, I know the value of every patient's and parent's time. Our Office goes to great lengths to respect everyone's time throughout the treatment process. The treatment plans of Summer Orthodontics are designed to progress our patients along as efficiently as possible. Additionally, the office environment helps reduce stress through its design and by encouraging excitement in patients to attend appointments. As a professional caregiver, it is very important to me to answer all questions and explain my treatment plans every step of the way. Choosing the right treatment plan is a big decision and can potentially cause anxiety. My job is to minimize this stress by arming patients and parents with the knowledge they need to make the best possible decisions. As a health advocate, I enjoy practicing healthy choices in my personal and professional life. In my free time, I enjoy yoga & pilates and preparing healthy meals with my family. My focus on healthy choices is the foundation for Sustainable Smiles. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Summer Orthodontics. We look forward to the opportunity to care of you or a loved one soon. Summer Blake, D.D.S., M.S.

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
