Periodontics practice enjoys new offices

PLATTSBURGH — A spacious new office has the staff at Adirondack Periodontics all smiles.

Dr. Gordon Davis said the practice moved into the former Tip Top Frame building at 4161 Route 22 in South Plattsburgh on Nov. 19. 

“We did some fairly significant renovations,” Davis said.


The new office has five operatory rooms, including two surgical operatories for procedures such as dental implants and sinus grafts. Each features earth-tone tile floors and windows to maximize natural lighting.

The waiting area has cream-colored walls with white trim and windows to provide a bright, cheery atmosphere.

There is a back office that houses IT equipment and can be used for case discussions. A spacious conference room features a deep brown hardwood table and comfortable chairs.

The reception area is about three times the size of what they had at the former Healey Avenue location, which makes the office staff happy. 

Davis shared that building with dentist Dr. Mark Davey and orthodontist Dr. Tim McSweeney. As the three planned to grow their practices, it made sense for someone to move and Davis was able to make that work to his advantage when the Tip Top Frames space became available.

It worked out in other ways as well, as Davis now is closer to his home in Peru and thus able to ride his bicycle to work in warmer weather. The new office also includes a gym downstairs for staff to work out and get a little stress relief.

Davis said it is really nice to own his own office space.  While he misses the camaraderie that went with the shared offices, it’s nice to have a little more elbow room.

“It allows us a little more flexibility,” he said. “We know we’re going to be here awhile.”


The new location also provides easy access from Route 22 at Exit 36 of the Northway.
