Office Manager Laura Cumiga says the expansion will diminish the wait time for patients and enable the clinic staff to provide better treatment. This expansion, which will be completed at the beginning of 2016, may mean the addition of five or six more staff to the current staff of 20 employees.
The first ABC Dental location was launched in 1995 by Dr. Iraj Jabbary. Including the West Orem clinic, the practice now includes five locations––6704 Hillcroft in Southwest Houston, 5751 Blythewood in the Texas Medical Center, 1500 E. Southmore in Pasadena, and the newest location that opened in March at 4400 N. Freeway in North Houston. Expansion is happening throughout the practice as the Pasadena location is also adding space, Cumiga said.
ABC Dental is unique in that it does not use traditional advertising and marketing methods. Instead, the philosophy is to inform the public about the importance of dental care and hygiene through its Community Outreach Program. “We believe in education,” she said, adding that presentations about good oral health have been beneficial to building the practice.
