Dr. Larsen purchased a small practice in July 1981 from Dr. Joseph Johansen who was starting an oral surgery residency. Our first office home was located in the Edgemont Professional Plaza at 3707 N. Canyon Road in Provo, Utah. It was a small two operatory office, but it provided a good foundation upon which to build.
In 1986, we had a growing and learning experience when our office moved to the Millrace Dental Center to share space with Dr. Sherm Cloward. It was great to be able to rub shoulders and learn from one of Utah Valley's top dentists. During this period we added a dental hygienist to our dental team. It is amazing that we were able to function previous without this valuable team-member.
The lure of owning his own building prompted Dr. Larsen to relocate to Orem in 1988. He and his wife, Linda, were making the home show rounds when they discovered a great lot on the SE corner of the intersection of 400 West and Center Streets. It was a great move and has proven to be a great location in close proximity to the Orem Post Office, the Seville Retirement Community, Mt. View High School, the Orem Recreation Center, and I-15. It has been very gratifying to be part of the Orem Community. Since that time, it is amazing how much the practice of dentistry has changed with many new techniques and materials.
