In 2007, after working for a large dental corporation for several years, Dr. Hedrick decided she was ready to run her own practice. Her primary motivator was wanting to better serve patients, and she realized she could offer more personalized care with her own dental practice. Technology was another big factor, as she eagerly wanted to take advantage of the latest dental equipment, such as CEREC machines. With her own practice, Dr. Hedrick could make her own decisions and purchase this equipment herself.
In January 2008, Dr. Hedrick was fortunate to find a great dental practice to purchase from Dr. Joseph Kelliher, a well-respected dentist in Longmont who was retiring. After a round of interviews, Dr. Hedrick’s dream came true when Dr. Kelliher decided she was the person to continue his legacy and transitioned his practice to her.
Our New Location
The transition from Dr. Kelliher was extremely successful and went so well that we began to outgrow our office space after just a few years. In 2013, we moved from our original office on 17th Street to our current location off Hover Road in Longmont. We also changed the name of our practice from “Adrienne Hedrick, DDS” to “Longmont Dental Loft.”
