2022 What a Year!

Three hundred and sixty five days, fifty-two weeks, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes and 3153600 seconds. 2022 was a year of new openings, expansions, entertainment and F-U-N! Below we will take a stroll through the property and see who opened their doors in 2022!

Dutchman Dental handed the reigns over to one of their own, Dr. Justin Labbe in August of 2022 and newly named the practice, Signature Dental. Chatting with The Independent in October, Dr. Labbe described wanting to plant roots in his own business and practice. “The idea is to have that long-term relationship with patients. Every time you see them you want them to feel good about coming,” said the North Kingstown native who now lives in East Greenwich.

Dr. Labbe is accepting new patients and practicing with the latest, state-of-the-art equipment. If you are in need of a dentist, give Signature Dental a call today!

Along with Signature Dental, South County Acupuncture also opened its doors. SCA uses traditional oriental medicine, providing safe, intensive treatments customized to heal your unique pains and conditions, and improve your overall health and well-being. Heena Choi  is a second generation Oriental Medicine Practitioner. She immigrated with her family from South Korea to the U.S. when she was a junior in high school. She graduated from the University of Maryland, and then went on to study the Master’s Program of Oriental Medicine at Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, CA.  After graduating from the Master’s Program in 2006, she did an externship at the department of Oriental Medicine at Kyung Hee University General Hospital in South Korea. Upon returning to the United States, Heena then started her own practice.  She treats patients with various conditions, from muscular pains to internal problems. She combines her knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine to help patients heal effectively.  Book your appointments and consults online HERE.
