What a great day it was!!! Thank you Bev Woods for your most excellent initiative to offer free dental hygiene care for those who otherwise could not afford it. To Sally Lloyd (for bringing the day out West in Canada). And a great BIG thank you to the dear hygienists (Lenora, Jeanelle and Jody and Dave the “honorary hygienist”) who helped make this day a success at White Summit Dental Hygiene Clinic:)))
Mark your calendars people!!
This is Dave with a quick construction update. The rough-in for plumbing and electrical is done, drywall is up, interior doors are installed and painting has started. It all seems to be coming together now on the construction side.
Rocell and I are both looking forward to opening day and meeting all of you soon! So far we’re on target for opening before November. In the mean time, take a quick tour of the construction below.

It’s been a long time coming, but construction is finally underway at the new White Summit Dental Hygiene clinic in Kensington!
By the way… I’m Dave, Rocell’s main helper in her plans to serve the Hillhurst, Sunnyside neighbourhoods, and Calgary community with her clinic. We’ve met some amazing people who’ve helped us along the way, and before I show you some progress photos of the clinic, I thought I’d share some of the people we’ve met and had the pleasure to work with.
Keith, our Architect – Keith is a very easy guy to work with. He has great ideas, an eye towards eco-friendly design, and knows the Kensington community well. Keith used his magic and helped squeeze all the clinical elements we needed into a small space. He’s the principle at KaBeN Design. If you’re in the market for design help, we definitely recommend him!
Lindsay, our sign guy – Lindsay is a very creative individual, and has come up with some amazing ideas. His background in events shows through, and his passion is second to none. Call Flagworks and ask for Lindsay if you’re in the market for signage or swag!
OK, now onto the photos. These were taken shortly after the walls were framed and give a good idea of what the clinic will feel like. Cal, our contractor, made some minor layout suggestions that seem to have translated well.
