    I was just telling my wife about your clinic yesterday, as she is a Dental Assistant.

    Do the girls dress up like Sandra Dee? Put 'em all on roller skates too!

    Great job.
  13. The interior and floor planning was done by a company that specializes in orthodontic office design (Green Curve Design). While the original concept and the look of the facades was my idea, they made it work. The outside was done by a local architectural firm. I told them the look I was going for, and this was their first draft. I saw the initial concept drawing and I said, "Build that!"


    Hey Buck, how you doing? I sent Augie an email this morning telling him I had new pictures up. Will you be going to the Stray Kat and Eureka, too? I gutted my Merc this weekend, so I will just be a spectator. :(


    So far as tours, see Duncan's post below yours. He is my full time tour guide. LOL. But, yes, the space under the awning where the Merc is in the picture was actually the idea of the architect thinking it would add interest to have that space just to park whatever old heap I drive to work in.


    Duncan Cox: Pastor, family man, good friend and tour guide. Sorry, that doesn't all fit on a little badge for your official vest, though. ;)


    Actually, we are a beta tester for a new office management program geared just towards orthodontists. Our billing and appointment schedule is a bit different than a regular dental office, so we have had troubles getting dental software to jive in the past. But, yes, we run all Macs...I love computers that work. :D


    Sure! We'd love to have you. But, Nebraska is a smidge far to travel once a month for your adjustment. LOL
  14. No, they don't. But, they all did want matching mechanics overalls for the open house. LOL Roller skates a bad idea...my staff is all over the age of 40. I'd hate to think about the workman's comp claim on a broken hip! LOL

    I'm sure you did this for your own pleasure. But, I admire that you are giving back a lot for the amusement and pleasure of your patients.

    1. Upholstery, pictures, inspiration, how to, history.

    Dr. Dave,

    I was impressed with your work when we conversed on the uph group. Now that I see the building, the way it is all incorporated, and the stories behind it all - WOW! I am truly amazed and impressed with your vision, talent, hard work and above all else - your attitude. A great job by you and all involved. Congratulations.

    Jake
