Local Dentist Office Upgrade Facilities
LAC DU FLAMBEAU - Just thinking about going to the dentist makes some of us run for cover, but a new Northwoods dental clinic might make you think again about the horror stories.

Peter Christensen Dental Clinic upgraded their facilities.

The 36,000 square foot facility will be able to seat 50,000 patients in the next coming year.

Dr. Paco Fralick is the dental health director.

They have reinvested money into the program so they can bring specialist in-house so patients won't have to travel.

"So that builds better treatment planning and better team work when all of the providers are under one umbrella," said Fralick.

"You can sit down at a table and look at cases together. So it's a real advantage for the patients."

Catherine Winters is the Program Director for Dental at Nicolet College.

She has worked with other community colleges and dental schools.

She says this is far beyond anything she's ever seen.

"It's just a phenomenal opportunity for the students out here. It's exciting," Winters said.

"I just love program development and I love seeing the new beginnings of programs. Dentistry is my passion."

Dr. Fralick still does a private practice here in Rhinelander.
