Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI – Successfully developing a modern dental office requires the coordination of multiple disciplines. Heritage Construction Companies brings cost effective, environmentally sound, efficiently productive and patient friendly sub-contractor management and office design strategies to Northern Dental Alliance dentist clients.
Heritage Construction began in 2004 when Andrew Christensen started the general contractor business to serve dental clients throughout the state of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin to build commercial and retail buildings that fit the needs of the business, the business owner and the area. The Heritage office is located in Elk River, MN.
Christensen saw his association with the Northern Dental Alliance (NDA) as a comprehensive structure for increasing awareness in the value of dentists involving specialists from various dental industry disciplines. The knowledge his construction and remodeling group brings to NDA has greatly improved the success ratio for its member dentists.
As with all Northern Dental Alliance members, Heritage Construction Companies, LLC, is an independent firm. Dentists can select individual NDA consultant members and then ‘build a team’ if desired. Each member is an independent contractor and diligently works in the best interests of the client. The areas of expertise members represent include business banking, equipment/building financing, laboratory services, cosmetic/implant dentistry education, OSHA training, infection control, fee-only financial/tax planning, retirement strategies, buying/selling of practices, dentist transitions, legal issues, health law and marketing/advertising.
After operating a business for many years that employs various subcontractors, Christensen understands how expertise and collaboration can improve the likelihood for success: from initial planning to project execution. The Northern Dental Alliance offers a platform to proactively connect, and then partner with dentists and dental office developers.
This group effort makes it possible to interact and develop solutions at the right time. Dentists can avoid the architectural (cart before the horse) design mistakes and cost overruns and inefficiencies related to poor planning and/or office building site selection.
Heritage Construction manages each office building or remodeling project from start to finish, and even extends their expertise beyond those parameters. A parallel goal is to cost-efficiently refine the dentist’s budget. Their dental practices (and other buildings) come in many shapes and sizes so they have the experience to meld any dentist’s goal with a reasonable yet optimum budget.
Work environments are based on respect with the complementary result of a rewarding and fun experience. Alliances with subcontractors from architects to carpenters and suppliers including lumberyards and other building supply companies are formed to enhance job site safety, productivity and cost effectiveness. Serving their clients honorably typifies their business relationships.
According to Heritage owner Andy Christensen, “We have been successfully building, remodeling and servicing dental clinics for many years. With our combined knowledge, experience and skill set, we have become experts in the dental industry. Many dentists in the area already know about our construction company, whether we have built or remodeled their practices or not. Besides building many offices throughout the region we keep connected by regularly attending dental shows and meetings as well as advertising in the Northwest Dentistry Journal, a Minnesota Dental Association publication.”
Each practice construction team developed by Heritage coordinates their efforts to ensure an integrated and seamless building process. Every project is individualized as well to provide the dentist client with the results that work best for their office. From practical workspaces to patient comfort, expert knowhow is available to offer recommendations for efficiencies and innovations.
Minnesota and Twin Cities area projects include offices in Bloomington, Brooklyn Park (Smile Centers), Albertville, Blaine, Maple Grove, Burnsville, Waconia and Moundsview. Their Smile Center client said this, “The biggest thing that stands out about Heritage Construction is how professional they are as a company. Their honesty and follow through on all projects, no matter how big or small, and their attention to detail makes the construction process so much easier.” Another client’s response, “They are very trustworthy and honest in everything they say. Heritage performed and did everything they said they would do. We’re very happy with our building.”
The Northern Dental Alliance (NDA) provides a comprehensive platform for dentists to structure highly successful and secure businesses, achieve superior oral health and smile enhancement restorations for their patients as well as protect and improve their financial future through proper investment and transition planning. Heritage Construction Companies, LLC, greatly increases the depth of knowledge and resources every NDA member is able to offer their dentist clients.
