East Pointe Trails Dental Centre Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada Dr. Edward MacMurdo “Less is more”...we have all heard the phrase many times. In this instance, we can showcase Dr. Edward McMurdo’s new practice, East Pointe Trails Dental Centre, to more fully understand the philosophy behind the notion. After moving to Tecumseh from the Vancouver area, Dr. MacMurdo sought to enter into an associateship. When this was not forthcoming, he revised his plan of action and decided to build new. What evolved was a great plan for a compact and streamlined 1,600-ft., 3-operatory office. “I prefer the smaller office with a single practitioner and’s less like an assembly line,” comments the Doctor. The vision for the office was further defined as the plans solidified and were taken to the action phase. “I received good ‘word of mouth’ references from other dentists about Henry Schein Dental’s Equipment Sales Specialist Carl Bernat,” recalls Dr. MacMurdo. “I spoke with him...and along with the contractor, we got everything organized. Carl took charge; I was still living in Vancouver at the time of construction. SIDEKICK Autumn 2010 Sidekick 71
