Smart Smile Dentistry and Cox Communications each held a ribbon cutting for new facilities on Thursday.
Smart Smile has moved to a new office space at 4404 NW 36th Ave. after running out of space for new equipment in their old space.
“We got really lucky finding this new place.” said Dr. Paivi Samant.
Cox Communications opened its first Solutions Store in the Gainesville area alongside Chamber officials, Mayor Ed Braddy and Rep. Keith Perry.
The Solutions Store, located in Butler Plaza at 3218 SW 35th Blvd., is a one-stop shop to help customers learn how to integrate their Cox services with new technologies, such as iPads and HD digital video recorders. Customers can also visit this new location to exchange equipment, buy accessories or pay their bill.
Cox Executive Director of Operations for Central Florida Kevin Munroe said that the store is going to bring Cox closer to their customers and allow them to bring more technology to their base.
“The store will allow customers to come in and interact and be hands-on with our products and technology,” he said. “It will also position us to better move into the digital age.”
The store employees five and a store leader, and will be the model for future Solutions Stores in the Cox Southeast region.
