Family Dentistry held an open house at its new location this past Saturday.

Dr. Chad Denomme and Dr. Stefano Storey opened their new office at the old Pizza V at 79 Richmond Street. The new location is twice as big as their previous office, which will help keep up with patient demand.

“We were outgrowing the space where we were,” said Dr. Storey. “We kind of had it in the back of our mind that we needed to make a move. Before you know it, we were tearing down drywall and hanging studs.”

According to Dr. Denomme, Family Dentistry is proud to serve the community of Amherstburg with the availability of IV sedation and their high level of expertise in implants.

The community responded well to the open house with over 300 people visiting the new office.

According to Debbie Scott, the regional manager and hygiene coordinator, it’s important for patients and families to feel comfortable when visiting the dentist.

“People love it here,” added Scott. “They walk through the door and they feel like they’re at home. We’re all family and friends here. Everyone gets along well, and everyone is very comfortable. There’s no other words that people are using besides how fantastic it is here and how kind and gentle these dentists are.”

In the five years since Dr. Denomme and Dr. Storey have been in business together, they have always felt the support of the community behind them, which has led to their growth.

“We want to say thanks to the community and the people around us for putting their trust in us and getting behind a new business,” said Dr. Denomme.

 

 

 

Local dentistry holding spring canned food drive

Local dentists are asking for their clients help with a canned food drive until the end of June.

Since the beginning of April, staff at Family Dentistry has been collected non-perishable food items for the Amherstburg Food Bank, and the support from their clients has been exceptional.

“Lots of people give before Christmas, there is always all kinds of stuff going on, even shortly after Christmas people are doing canned food drives at the schools but nobody really does a whole lot come spring time and there is still a need for it,” said office manager Melissa Gascoyne. “We decided to have a spring food drive for a couple of months and if they bring any canned goods in we enter them into a drive to win an iPad mini as incentive, which is donated by us.”

Melissa Gascoyne and Dr. Stefano Storey stand behind their front desk, which is overflowing with canned goods donated by their clients. The canned goods will be delivered to the Amherstburg Food Bank at the end of the month.

The team sponsors local sports teams on a regular basis and is always looking for ways to continue to give back to a community. Dr. Stefano Storey said they just wanted to continue to do their part.

Dr. Chad Denomme said they started in Amherstburg nearly four years ago, and wanted to show appreciation for the business people have given them.

“We want to give back what we can to the community that has supported us and our business,” said Dr. Denomme. “I remember a time when we first opened the doors and we didn’t have a single patient, it’s a pretty scary feeling. We felt a lot of gratitude as things started to take off. We never expected that as a practice we would be where we’re at today this quickly and I think the biggest thing is that we look forward to continuing to provide the best care possible in a town where there’s many other good dentists, I think that’s important.”
