Healthwest Dental Associates expands and changes its name
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – Dr. Bayne Heersink and Dr. Wilkerson Mahone, dentists at Healthwest Dental, are thrilled to welcome two new dentists to their practice this month.
Dr. Jordan Rains and Dr. Riley Rains, a husband and wife team, focus on pediatrics and family dentistry. Both practiced in Missouri and decided to move south as they grew their families.
Both doctors are both members of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Alabama Dental Association. They have spent the past few years working to provide general dental care in underserved rural communities.
They will start accepting patients immediately.
“We receive daily calls from parents who need dental care for their children. Dr. Jordan Rains was an incredible candidate who ticked all of our boxes. She comes highly recommended by so many Missouri families. After getting to know her, we knew she would fit well into our practice,” says Dr. Bayne Heersink. “And due to the growth in our region and the increased demand for dental services in general, we also needed to add another dentist to our team. Her husband, Dr. Riley Rains, was the perfect fit. We are delighted to have them in Dothan and anticipate that our community will also welcome them warmly.
As Healthwest Dental recruits new members to their team, they thought it was the perfect time to reflect their expansion with a new name and look.
Effective October 1, 2022, Healthwest Dental Associated will now be known as Foundations Dental Group.
“A foundation is the base or foundation of everything from a home to a healthy mouth. If it’s solid and strong, a great foundation evokes feelings of security and well-being. We think it truly embodies everything what we’re trying to do here in our practice,” says Dr. Wilkerson Mahone. “We wanted this name change to have some meaning behind it. our team.
The group is expanding to offer pediatric dentistry and increased capacity in all other areas.
Foundation Dental Group is located at 502 Healthwest Drive in Dothan, Alabama. Their services include advanced general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and prosthodontics. The office is open Monday to Thursday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
