North Chautauqua Dental held a ribbon cutting celebration at their new location on Bennett Road on Aug. 12. Attending the celebration were both tow and city officials, as well as state officials. Congratulatory remarks were made by Richard Purol, town supervisor; Mayor Wilfred Rosas and Sen. George Borrello.
Dr. Julie Mills expressed her appreciation and gratitude to the town and city officials on behalf of herself and her business partners, Dr. Susan Soja and Dr. Michael Lee, for making Dunkirk a great place to own a business. She also thanked their families, friends, and staff for their support. Most of all, she thanked their patients for trusting the team at North Chautauqua Dental to provide them with dental care.
The trio of doctors purchased North Chautauqua Dental from Dr. John Berner in 2015. The work was underway prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which halted breaking ground. Additionally, supply chain issues caused numerous delays in the project.
Finally, in their new location, the doctors and staff are thrilled to welcome patients to experience this beautiful new space.
Guests were offered tours through the new state of the art facility that is three times the size of the former location at 6,300 square feet and 16 treatment rooms. Dental hygienists provided demonstrations of their in office whitening treatments, where patients can spend about an hour in office and experience whiter teeth. The dental assistant team was also on hand to show how the new 3D intraoral scanner works to effortlessly and accurately capture images that once required an impression. Also, displayed was the new CBCT imaging machine that provides doctors with a 3D image of the patient’s anatomy.
North Chautauqua Dental provides all aspects of dental care including implants, Invisalign, whitening, extractions, root canals, crowns, cosmetic dentistry and more. They are looking forward to continuing the legacy of exceptional care here in the northern Chautauqua region.
