Construction Update #5: Things are Shaping Up

It’s been awhile since our last construction update, and a lot has happened since then! The workers have been here nearly every day, putting together the side and back additions to the building. There are actual rooms to walk through now! They’re obviously not finished yet, but it’s exciting to be able to visualize what the space will look like in the future. New windows are being added, and Dr. Hurst is busy picking out carpets, wallpapers, and colors for counters for the front desk and operatories. We’ll be sure to keep you updated. IMG_4062 IMG_4061 IMG_4059

Christmas Tree Contest: Vote for Us!

It must be getting closer to the holidays, because Utley & Iszkula Orthodontics have started their annual Christmas tree decorating contest! We had so much fun decorating our entry this year. We chose the theme “Christmas Under Construction” because our office building is getting a makeover from Santa for the holidays. Make sure to click here and give our tree a “like” on Utley & Iszkula’s Facebook page in order to vote for us! Please feel free to share our entry on Facebook as well.

Construction Update #4: Getting Easier to Picture!

Make sure to take a moment to check out all of the visible progress on our building after your next dentist appointment. There are now walls for the additional rooms as well as the foundation for the roof. In the next coming weeks, the crew will remove the front of the building in order to start to build the new façade. The crew has been here nearly everyday, working hard outside while we work on your teeth inside! It’s been a busy couple of weeks here at Fairview Family Dental. The nice weather has allowed there to be even more progress than expected. Make sure to check up on the blog to see more pictures as the project continues.
