110,000 patient visits
Nearly 17,000 of those visits were new patients
Dr. John Hudec has been a life-long believer in the City of Cleveland. While other colleagues were starting dental practices in the suburbs and outside the City of Cleveland, Dr. Hudec went against the norm and opted for the City as his foundation. In November of 1977, Dr. John Hudec opened the doors to his 1 operatory practice at 4283 Pearl Road in Cleveland. Dr. Hudec was the Doctor, Hygienist, Assistant, EFDA, Office Manager and Patient Coordinator. He waited for that first walk-in patient to come through his doors. Soon one patient turned into two and two into four. The practice grew as word of mouth spread regarding the care that Dr. Hudec provided. Dr. Hudec focused on providing the ordinary extraordinary well in all that he did. As more patients came, the need was created for more staff and more locations to meet the increased patient demand.The old fashioned way of building a practice allowed for substantial growth throughout the past 3 decades. Hudec Dental has now grown in excess of 100,000 patient visits a year throughout its 17 neighborhood locations. From 1 employee, Hudec Dental now is proud to employ 204 dental professionals.
