  • Office 1 opened September of 2002.
  • Office 2 opened February 2001.

• Both offices had access to CAD/CAM around the same time.

  • Office 1 had a CAD/CAM installed July 11, 2007.
  • Office 2 had a CAD/CAM installed August 8, 2007.

• They are both owned by the same affiliated owner doctor.
• They are only 15 miles apart in Southern California.
• Both facilities were built new with roughly the same square footage and number of treatment rooms.
• They both function as a group general practice model with multiple associate doctors and limited specialty providers.
