If you’ve stopped by our office recently, you may have noticed some big changes!
(Even if you’ve only driven by, you may have noticed the dumpster.)
We’re in the middle of a big expansion and renovation project, but don’t worry—we’re still open and still providing our full range of care options.
You might have to excuse a little bit of mess, but when everything’s finished, we’re going to be able to serve our patients better than ever.
We’re so excited, and you should be, too!
So What’s Changing?
Our neighbor, Dr. Dan Hornsby, recently merged his practice with another dentist and sold us his old office space. Since then, we’ve been hard at work renovating, remodeling, and converting it into a new, connected expansion for Head to Toe Healthcare.
By taking over the dentist office, we’ll increase our total floor space by more than 66 percent and have the entire building to ourselves!
What’s in it for you? Here are some of the highlights:
- Expanded lobby space with comfy seating and a coffee bar!
- Almost double the number of exam and treatment rooms—up to a new total of 11! In other words, even though our new waiting room is a lot plusher than the old one, you won’t have to spend as much time there—we’ll be able to get you back a lot quicker than before.
- Expanded optical display space and store with a wider selection of fashionable frames to choose from!
As for our internal team? We’ll be getting upgraded office and work spaces, a new conference room, call room, break room, and storage.
And that’s all good for you, too, since it means our team can work more efficiently and effectively together behind the scenes. In other words, we can worry less about the busywork of running a medical practice and spend more time delivering high quality care to our patients!
What’s the Timeline?
We kicked off the project in early May, and the expected timeline runs about three months. That means we’re hoping to be all finished sometime in August.
It’s a big project that hasn’t been without a few challenges! Knocking down walls and building new ones. Moving cabinets and sinks from one place to another. New plumbing, new electrical, new flooring. But we’ve done our homework and things are going really well.
We can’t wait to open the full office to 100% capacity!
In the Meantime?
In the meantime, we’re still open over our regular hours and offering our complete array of services to all our patients.
We’re doing as much work as we can over nights and weekends, and going through it in sections—first doing the full renovation on the expansion, and then making some upgrades to our existing office.
Our goal is to introduce as few disruptions as possible and honor existing appointments to the best of our ability.
We couldn’t be more thrilled that our practice is growing, and we can’t wait to show off the new office! We hope you’ll stop by and check it out soon! And again, we haven’t moved and we haven’t closed during the construction, so if you need to schedule your next appointment at any time, just give us a call at (52) 545-0202 and we’ll get you in.
Thanks!-Dr. Shih and Dr. Zie
