By now, many people have noticed our new clinic name: West Peaks Dental Suite. This has brought up some questions from many of our patients: “What was the name before?”, “Why give the clinic a name now?” and “Wait, who is Oakridge Crossing Dental?”.
What was the name before?
Most people are surprised when they hear that our clinic has previously had no formal name. If you were to call the office, you’d be greeted with “Dr Harbison and Dr Doody’s office”. This is the way things have been since Dr Doody opened the office space almost 40 years ago. The switch to a formal clinic name comes at a time when our dental clinic is looking at a significant change – relocating.
Why give the clinic a name now?
The change to West Peaks Dental Suite happened over several months and somewhat coincides with the Oakridge Co-Op, who is looking at major renovations to the building. The Oakridge Co-Op redevelopment project has been scheduled to begin in Spring 2019 and take approximately 2-3 years. Once the development is completed, our office, along with the other professional offices in the mall, will be moved into a professional building close to where the Boston Pizza is now. Our clinic will only be moving a short distance following the renovations. We thought it would be appropriate to have a name people can look for when seeking our clinic. We’re not sure when things will get started, but check back for updates once they do!
Who is Oakridge Crossing Dental?
When coming into the clinic, people often see our neighbours “Oakridge Crossing Dental”. Usually, we will see patients come in and wonder which desk they should be going to. Anyone who knows the history of our clinic may understand that the other half of our office space was previously owned by Dr Jeff Okamura. He has since sold his practice to Dr Claudiu Corbea who has chosen the name “Oakridge Crossing Dental” for his practice. While we share an office space, we are two independent clinics.
So whether it is presently, or in the future, keep an eye out for our new name and logo. We still offer the same compassionate care to our patients with Drs Harbison, Carey and Doody all here to meet your treatment needs – all that’s changed is the name!
