20131024-002513.jpg

By William Tauro

On Tuesday, Great Hill Dental Partners LLC. hosted it’s grand opening event for it’s Somerville new location located at 40 Holland Street, right in the heart of Davis Square.

Great Hill Dental has five locations in the greater Boston area and offers the very best and professionalism in dentistry with a modern touch of technology and state of the art equipment backing it up.

This Somerville location was specially designed and equipped with ten dentistry examination rooms, an in-house laboratory, a full inventory stockroom mini dentistry warehouse and a large comfortable waiting and reception area to make you feel right at home.

Former Somerville Mayor/Middlesex County Register of Deeds turned book author, Gene Brune was the official dignitary who was asked to conduct the ribbon cutting ceremony.

According Great Hill Doctor Richard Michalowski DMD, Mayor Brune was a perfect and appropriate fit especially with this grand opening because of the fact that when Brune was mayor back in the 80’s, he was the mayor who was instrumental in bringing in the Red Line to Davis Square as well as opening the very high rise newly renovated building that Great Hill Dental’s office is located in.
