COSHOCTON – Dr. Todd Salmans has been practicing dentistry in Coshocton for the last 20 years and will be making a big transition on Monday, Aug. 31. Salmans will be moving his practice to a new building that has been constructed using all local labor right beside his old office on Fourth Street.

“The way the building flows is much more efficient,” Salmans said. “Unlike the old house, this was made to be a dentist’s office. The other was fitted to be a dentist’s office.”

The 3,000 square foot building features a large modern waiting room, a private room and computer for each hygienist, an employee lounge, two private business offices, a lab area, and Salmans is expanding from four patient rooms to six. There is also a window where patients can look in and see how the instruments are sterilized.

“There are a lot of windows, a lot of light, and a lot of high ceilings,” he said.

Salmans has used as much local labor as possible. Hathaway Construction Inc. is the contractor, Philip A. Wagner Inc. did the plumbing, heating and cooling, Hilscher-Clarke did the electrical work, Bice Masonry in Fresno did mason work on the building, and supplies were bought locally at Coshocton Lumber and Fischer’s Decorating. The cabinetry was made in Ohio, and local resident Jim Fleming painted the office and Ed Dickerson constructed the flooring.

“One of my main goals was to use as many local tradesmen as I could,” said Salmans. “That is one decision I don’t regret. I can’t express enough gratitude to these people. They went above and beyond for me. The neatest thing for me was to pour money back into this community.”

Construction on the new building started the second week of April and will be ready for operation on Monday, Aug. 31.

A grand opening for the new building is being planned, but no date has been set as of this time.
