Mount Horeb receives $250K grant for new dental complex

The Village of Mount Horeb is receiving a $250,000 state grant to help finance the construction of a multispecialty dental and health complex, part of a $2.6 million project located in the village's downtown, according to a release.

The Community Development Investment Grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) will support the development of a 10,800-square-foot multitenant complex that will provide residents of Mount Horeb and surrounding communities with all their dental needs in one convenient location.

Owners of the multispecialty complex believe the complex will provide a convenient location for residents of Mount Horeb and surrounding communities. With the new location being close to an interstate exit, they hope it will help attract patients from other communities to seek specialty appointments that otherwise would not be available to them, and in turn bring more business to the village.

Tenants will include Mt. Horeb Dental LLC, Mt. Horeb Dental Specialty, and a new medical spa. Mt. Horeb Dental LLC will provide general dental services in a new state-of-the-art facility that will include 16 treatment rooms, three full-time general dentists, and nine hygienists. Mt. Horeb Dental Specialty will have four designated treatment rooms and will provide access to dental specialists, including an endodontist and orthodontist. The new medical spa will provide wellness coaching, cosmetic injectables, and skin care services.

The project is expected to create 15 to 20 new health care-related jobs as well as retaining 24 current jobs at Mt. Horeb Dental LLC.
