Oral surgery practice develops vacant land on Crocker Road
North Coast Jaw & Implant Center, the longtime practice of Dr. John Blakemore and Dr. William Blood, will move to Westlake after 39 years of practicing in North Olmsted. Dr. Raymond Plona joined the practice in 2013 and Dr. Gregory Plona joined in 2015.
“The practice has grown and we were in need of a larger space,” said Dr. Blood. “The new location will give us the opportunity to build a state-of-the-art facility, while focusing on providing the quality patient experience that our office strives for and that all of our patients deserve.”
The doctors considered many locations and ultimately decided that the southwest corner of Crocker and Center Ridge roads met their patients’ needs perfectly. “We have patients that drive from all over, being accessible to both interstates just felt like the right decision,” Dr. Ray Plona said.
All of the doctors at North Coast Jaw & Implant Center have lived in Westlake for many years and are very active in the community. “We are happy to bring our business to Westlake and feel very fortunate to live in such a wonderful, vibrant community,” said Dr. Blakemore.
The facility was designed by Davidson Smith Certo Architects, also of Westlake, and is slated to be finished in August 2017. The 23,000-square-foot building will house the offices of North Coast Jaw & Implant Center, Retina and Associates and will have an additional 5,000 feet of office space. The design of the building is sleek and modern, yet classic, with glass and stone work that will enhance the clean lines and basic geometric forms.
“Our fundamental goal has always been to provide the best medical care for our patients. Now we will get to practice in a beautiful new facility, that will not only be a wonderful environment for our patients, our staff and the doctors, we believe, it will be a nice addition to Westlake,” said Dr. Greg Plona.
