Orleans, VT – The Orleans Dental Center is pleased to announce the opening of a new addition after only two years of operation. The expansion is a self-funded project deemed necessary based on the rapid growth of the Center’s patient population. Orleans Dental Center opened in January of 2017 and is part of a collaboration with North Country Hospital, the Village of Orleans, and Northern Counties Health Care to serve the dental needs of Orleans County residents.
“The Orleans Dental Center was reaching near capacity and in order to better serve the community, we doubled its treatment capability by adding a 1,500 square foot addition,” states Michelle Tetreault, Director of Dental Operations at Northern Counties Health Care (NCHC), parent company of the Orleans Dental Center. “The addition encompasses four additional treatment rooms, a Community Resource Coordinator room, and a conference room along with the expansion of the waiting room and business office.”
NCHC has recently hired a part-time dentist, Dr. Ekaterina Nemtsev, who will begin seeing patients at the Orleans Dental Center in early March. Dr. Nemstev joins current Orleans Dental Center dentists Dr. Ronald St. John and Dr. Amanda Munger. NCHC is continuing to recruit with the desire of adding an additional full–time dentist to the organization.
The hours of operation at the Orleans Dental Center are 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. To make an appointment, please call (802) 754-6973. For information on other NCHC healthcare and dental facilities, visit www.nchcvt.org.
