Remarking on the clinic renovations, Dr. Nusstein said, “This has been
an amazing transformation. Not only do we have a better space to work
in, but we’ve also been given new dental chairs, new cabinets, and new
sinks and lights. All of those are tremendous improvements, but one of
the best changes is that we now have digital x-ray units to work with,
and that’s been a ‘night and day’ change in terms of technology.”
He added, “This area hadn’t been updated in any significant way
for several decades, and it was aging badly. We also serve about 5000
patients each year, so it's a heavy
traffic area that needed new equipment to serve
our clients better -- and to do a better job of training the D.D.S.
students who work here.”

staff members and students joined the celebration and were given a tour

clinic had undergone.

The Columbus branch of Patterson Dental gave $18,000 in labor and technical support for this project, and we thank them for their help. To the Midmark Corporation and Dr. Anne Eiting Klamar, we give our heartfelt thanks for their gift of $400,000 that has transformed this clinic. Their generosity is extraordinary, and we are truly grateful.”

“At Midmark, we're committed to making a
positive difference in the practice of health care and in every life we
touch. And I believe that’s our responsibility as a business leader.”

graduate was a big part of why we wanted to give something back. So ‘Go Bucks!’ And thanks for giving us this great opportunity to
do something that matters.”
