LOWER SALFORD >> There’s updated technology in the new Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart Dental Associates office on Main Street in Harleysville, but not everything is new, Dr. Todd Weaver said.
“One of the interesting things to note is we did a green move,” he said.
Many of the things being used in the new office, such as the dental chairs, came from the two offices that are combined into the new one, he said. Instead of having three offices — the initial one in Souderton and ones at Peter Becker Community and at 181 Main St. in Harleysville — the two Harleysville ones have been combined into one office at the Main Street location.
Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart purchased the site when Dr. Jack Brent retired, removed the previously existing building and built a new, larger building with patient care space on the first floor and offices and storage space on the second floor.
A ribbon-cutting was held April 1, with the office opening for business April 4. An open house is planned for June 7, Weaver said.
Combining the two Harleysville offices increases the dental office’s efficiency, Weaver and Dr. Tracy Reinhart said.
“When we had the two smaller offices, the staff wasn’t as entwined,” Tracy Reinhart said.
“All the staff rotates between the doctors and the offices,” she said. “We’ll be able to connect better with our teammates.”
While the construction on Main Street was taking place, patients who would normally go there instead went to the Peter Becker office, which has since been closed, Dr. George Reinhart said.
“We can now offer [in Harleysville] all the procedures that we used to only do in our Souderton office,” George Reinhart said. That includes implants, orthodontics and root canals, he said.
Five employees have been added, Weaver said.
Information about Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart is available at www.gotta-smile.com and on Facebook. Construction updates were also posted.
Along with Weaver and the Reinharts, the other dentists in the practice are Dr. John Reckner, Dr. David Guengerich and Dr. Chris Zeledon.
Zeledon said he started at Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart as a dental assistant in 2008, then became a dentist there after his 2015 graduation from Temple University’s dental school.
“All the doctors here are really mentors, not just co-workers,” Zeledon said. “They really teach me.”
There is still a learning process after completing school, he said.
“They realize that and help me a lot,” Zeledon said.
