Cedar Springs Dental broke ground on a new 3,000-square-foot office to replace the current 1,000-square-foot facility located at 20 East Church Street NE in Cedar Springs.
The new facility is being built adjacent to the current one, and once complete, the old building will be demolished and converted into a parking lot.
The project has been in the works since the day Dr. Andy Setaputri purchased the practice from Dr. Danette Martin in 2018. Tripling the size of his current facility will allow Setaputri to see more patients, as well as bring on his business partner and brother, Zane Setaputri, DDS, without compromising the level of care and service each patient receives.
“We have experienced incredible growth over the past two years and are seeing over 60 new patients a month,” Andy Setaputri said. “Our current facility is simply too small and outdated to meet our current needs.
“Building from the ground up allows us to create the perfect space that prioritizes patient health and safety, as well as prepares us well for future growth. The design and layout of the new office support the culture we’ve worked hard to establish and allows us to add three full-time positions to the team.”
The office will include nine operatories, a surgical suite and a waiting area.
Each operatory of the new facility will include Grade-A water-filtration systems, as well as a single point of entry by way of a limited-touch door. Each operatory will function as a negative pressure isolation room and will include air purification systems that offer surgical-quality air and limit patient exposure to harmful aerosols.
Grand Rapids-based First Companies will manage construction, and architecture is done through Grand Rapids-based Dixon Architecture.
An open house for all current patients and the Cedar Springs community will be held at a yet-to-be-announced date at the beginning of 2021.
