Very cool digs! ... Sure wish my kids had an orthodontist like you ... maybe then my Delta Dental insurance premiums would hurt so much
Are you still displaying these cool items in the new office?:
That is awesome to finally see it completed! I'll make sure Augie sees your post. I've got the picture you took of us at the downey Big Boy hung up in my shop Buck
Thanks for the compliments. It has been lots of work for the last three years and has consumed much of my free time....and that of my family. They have been great and I tried to be careful not to be crazy consumed with it and still put my family first. My wife says I'm not gonna be out in my shop anytime soon. Bummer....and my Merc needs brakes, wiring and a new steering set up.
HEMI32, yes, all that stuff is still in the office. The P-40 nose is actually on the wall above Larry's shop doing a fly over. If you look close in that picture, you can see it. The blue sky needs some clouds to make it pop, but that is a project for another day. The other stuff is scattered about. There are several showcases around that has lots of it. The soap box derby car is still here, just doesn't show in the pics. That was actually built by one of my first patients and she went to the Nats twice in it in two different divisions.
So far as a fancy office being a reminder of how much braces cost patman, that is not lost on me. In my case, I'm pretty sure I'm the least expensive guy in town and I don't live in a big fancy house and drive a Mercedes, Porsche, etc. (just driver quality and below old cars LOL). Rather than live like that, I invested it in an office the patients get to enjoy, too. Although, I recognize that is something that is not readily known, but I'm pretty well known in town and folks know how I live, so hopefully most of them get it.
I think im going to be taking a trip down there to check this out in person! Awesome and CONGRATULATIONS It looks like your hard work is paying off
Awesome, gotta lighten the day for folks when the walk in!
Dude!!! This is AMAZING!!! Well done!!! I have to go to the dentist on Wednesday to have a cavity filled. Every time I go there it makes the experience even LESS fun because the place is SOOOO ugly inside! There's no WAY people's experience wouldn't be at least a LITTLE positive visiting your office!
We didn't have cool shit like that when we were kids
I wonder how many grown men are going to be seen strutting around with braces just to have an excuse to hang out at your joint. Sah-weet!
Well conceived and beautifully executed - what a great idea!
That's an ortho office??? Wow, I wish my Orthodontist had been a hot rodder! I'd love to see this in person. Bravo! And I wish you luck with the business!
That's impressive! You all done good!
Very cool, what better place to get a new grill.
That's really neato, you did a great job!
"GADZOOKS!!" Frickin' amazing!! I can see see an increase in adult cavities in Conway or weekly polishing,whether needed or not!! Do you do surgery tours!!?
Way to go Doc...Wish you were closer.
Absolutely Incredible! If I'm ever in Arkansas I am stopping in. Ihave an appointment later this month with my dentist, I am taking prints of your office with me!
I wish my orthodontists office looked like that when I was a kid!!! Awesome work Doc!
Dave, Kongrats on finishing your remodeling, your going to have to figure out when you
can give tours. Very kool!! Do you have saved parking for the Merc?
Happy Trails, Mick
Mick, you know I'm the official tour guide! Just let me know when you'll be here!
Let's just hope his drills aren't powered by blown V8s.
If I lived anywhere near your office I would be there every 3 months for a cleaning just to check out the place. Great job!
Give me a few hours, I'll hop in the Merc and I'll be on my way... I wish
Looks like we will be rolling into Conway the week before Salina. (mid July)
way to cool looks great
This is beyond incredible!
That is great DrDave. You and Denise did not do it justice when you guys were describing it at the BBQ place at GNRS. Congrats it is a fantastic office.
Very cool, and well done!!
Just caught some of your hardware in the office - are you running MacPractice DDS?
If you were my dentist, I'd let you pull all my teeth out.
