Crews are demolishing a building on the south side to make way for a dental clinic.
At 5021 S. National Ave., at the intersection with Weaver Road, a new building for iTooth Family Dentistry LLC is slated to be developed, according to past reporting. Roughly 90% of the existing building is being demolished in preparation for construction of an 11,500-square-foot clinic, according to Brian Kubik of project architect Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective.
In a Facebook post yesterday, iTooth Family Dentistry officials said the company is moving to the site in late spring or early summer 2023. The business currently operates at 3211 E. Battlefield Road, Ste. 100.
Springfield Business Journal previously reported Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective is the architect and mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer for the two-story addition and renovation for iTooth Family Dentistry. Richards Construction is the general contractor for the project and additional engineering work is by Anderson Engineering Inc., civil, and Toth and Associates Inc., structural.
The building being demolished formerly housed Dining by Design and Aviary Bakery.
Signage at the site indicates OakStar Bank is financing the project. The cost of the project is undisclosed, Kubik said.
With services including cleaning and preventive care, cosmetic dentistry and family dentistry, iTooth is led by Dr. Lance Robbins, according to its website. Robbins' LinkedIn profile indicates he's owned the practice for more than 13 years.
The newest facility for Springfield-based preschool and early child care operator Little Sunshine’s Enterprises Inc. opened; a love of food and cooking spurred Brian Keener to launch Contorto; and a CrossFit gym in Marshfield changed owners.
