Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Hawley Lane Dental!
Three questions with Dr. Kristy Gretzula, owner of Hawley Lane Dental.
Why did you start your business?
I (owner and dentist Kristy Gretzula) started Hawley Lane Dental in 2008 because I wanted to change people’s perception of dentistry. I felt by creating a small, friendly environment, we could show our patients that their oral health was not only important but also something that didn’t have to be neglected out of fear. Now that we’ve been in practice for over 10 years, my next goal is to expand my “giving back”. More donations and fundraising, as well as charity work, will help us give back to the community and those in need.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business: “I wish I could…”
…tell our patients how much we really care about them! We love teeth of course but getting to know our patients and their families is what really drives us. Sharing in weddings, pregnancies, job promotions, new homes and other life events helps us stay connected to the people we treat. My favorite part of our practice is watching our young patients grown through childhood into young adulthood!
I always say we’re like the “Cheers” of dentistry…when you come in, everyone knows you!
We have a lot of requests for teeth whitening. Everyone wants a dazzling smile of course and a bright smile can really change how you feel about yourself. We’ve been using an amazing whitening system in our practice. Each batch is made fresh and we get great results with almost zero sensitivity! There’s something for everyone’s needs and budget!
