ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Westgate Dental Care held a groundbreaking ceremony today to commemorate the construction of a state-of-the-art dental facility after a two-year development process.
Representatives from the Village of Arlington Heights and Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce joined Westgate Dental Care owner Dr. Peter A. Kics, DDS at the ceremony. Dr. Kics thanked village and chamber representatives for their help and support during the lengthy planning process and noted that he looks forward to continuing to serve the community in the practice's new facility.
"My team and I have been lucky enough to serve Arlington Heights and surrounding communities with quality dental care for 15 years," said Dr. Kics. "With this new facility, we'll be able to continue to deliver the highest levels of service, care and experience for many years to come."
The decision to expand was made in 2015 when it became apparent that more space would be required to serve its existing and growing patient base. With strong ties to the community, the decision to stay in Arlington Heights was a simple one. Mayor Tom Hayes congratulated the Westgate Dental Care family on their decision to expand in the village.
"Congratulations to Westgate Dental Care for getting to this point with their business," said Mayor Tom Hayes. "It is very exciting for me, as mayor, and for all of the board members to see a business reinvest in the Village of Arlington Heights. We wish you many, many years of great success at this new location."
Westgate Dental Care locally sponsors numerous schools, sports teams and charitable organizations throughout the year. In addition, Westgate has provided over $80,000 in free dental care through Dentistry from the Heart, a program the practice has participated in annually since 2014, providing free dental care to individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford it.
Located at 2900 W. Euclid Ave in the Esplanade at Arlington Heights Shopping Center, the new facility is a half mile from Illinois Route 53 and situated between the Arlington Downs development and Arlington Park.
The new facility will span over 9000 sq. ft. across two stories – over seven times the size of the current storefront practice in downtown Arlington Heights. The building will feature a modern, ergonomic design as well as the latest in industry technology. Twenty patient treatment rooms will be complimented by a state-of-the-art lab and sterilization center as well as a dedicated conference and training center for professional growth and staff development. Treatment rooms are designed for rear-delivery dentistry which place clinical instruments behind the patient to decrease anxiety – something Westgate strives for. With the new facility, additional staff and specialized services such as oral surgery will be brought on-board to bring comprehensive dentistry under one roof. The building was designed by Design Ergonomics, Inc. and is being built by TMS Construction, Inc. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2017.
