SmileCare Dental, owned by Dr. Ryan Nygard, is a well-established family and cosmetic dental practice in Fargo, ND. We truly believe we are unlike any other dental experience. It is their goal to provide you and your family with professional and comfortable care in a peaceful and clean office environment through state-of-the-art dental practices and technologies. While their equipment has been state-of-the-art since opening, Dr. Ryan wanted the building to match that.
This project was a 5,101 square foot interior and exterior remodel with a new parking lot and landscaping, as well as additional rental space. The goal was to keep the dental office operational throughout the entire process, so we completed the interior remodel in 2 phases. The interior remodel project consisted of a new layout, dental equipment, and implementing an all-around welcoming space. The exterior remodel consisted of new windows, siding, paint, building signage, landscaping and a new parking lot.
We visited with Roers Project Manager, Nate Mankie, to get some feedback regarding this project. Here is what he had to say:
What was your favorite part of the process?
My favorite part was watching the existing building go from old to new. I also enjoyed watching patients’ and passerby’s reactions as they saw the different stages of progress throughout the remodel.
With the dental office still operating, how did you avoid any issues during the remodel?
The key is maintaining optimal communication between Roers, SmileCare, and the subcontractors. With this, we were able to maintain our schedule to keep each piece running efficiently.
What was it like working on-site?
Everyone worked well on site. Everyone would help if there was a problem and put their heads together to come up with a solution. They would respect that the dental office was still open during construction and that some days we had to work around that but overall it was a good on-site experience.
What was a highlight of working on this project?
The highlight of the project for me was the completion of the exterior of the building. The exterior is like a first impression. It sets the tone for the experience, and I think it turned out great!
This remodel project offered a unique experience for our team, as we got to work along side an interior designer.
Monica Hart, Interior Designer, came in and assisted SmileCare in making the owner’s dream of a new space, with a timeless color pallet and feel, come to life. Dr. Ryan specifically asked for navy blue with an accent of mustard, so she built the palette and selections around that.
At Roers, we focus on building partnerships, so we asked Monica how her experience working with the Roers team was.
“Everyone at Roers was very efficient and organized – I really appreciated that!”
That efficiency and organization played a role in the success of this project. Happy contractor, happy interior designer, happy owner. This was such a fun project to be a part of, and we can’t wait for the next!
