In a front page story on Monday, Aug. 24 it was implied that dental costs would be going up. A statement from Drs. Herman and Mack would like to clarify that inference:

“Yes, it does cost to build a new building, but design advantages and layout changes will allow new technology to be implemented.   This will provide an increased level of efficiency that will allow the delivery of dental care with even greater efficiency.  This will allow us to keep direct costs and fees to patients down for years to come, as well as making it more convenient and enjoyable.  We believe that now is a good time to build.  Costs are low now and building will provide further stimulus to the local businesses, and will continue to help improve our city.”
