On Monday, May 15th, Hudec Dental acquired Modelo Dental in Lakewood, Ohio. This acquisition is the 20th office for Hudec Dental. Since Dr. Hudec opened the doors 40 years ago, his goal was to serve the City of Cleveland and prioritize the needs of local Clevelanders. Forty years later, he has expanded West of Cleveland to focus on serving more communities, specifically the Lakewood community.

“Lakewood is a very cosmopolitan community. It’s residents are a true reflection of the diversity in NEO. Hudec Dental has not provided the convenient access to its quality care on the West Side of Cleveland. By coming to Lakewood, we now can begin to provide access to the type of care that Westsiders seek in a true Cleveland-esque community.” Says Michael Hudec, Chief Operations Officer at Hudec Dental.

Dr. Joseph Jez is the sole provider out of the Lakewood office and joins 4 staff members. This team has over 20 years of experience and two of the staff members are bilingual to better serve and meet the needs of the community. Dr. Jez’s determination and enthusiasm to help others will drive the practice with his team.

“I am very empathetic to the needs of my patients. I will make every effort for my patients to have a painless experience. I truly listen.” Says Dr. Jez who joined Hudec Dental in 1989 and has now returned. “Hudec Dental allows me to truly focus on the patient. I am an artist of the patient and my priority is at the chair. I will give each and every patient the respect they deserve.”

All 35 doctors and over 250 staff members follow the same philosophy, Hudec 1, 1 Patient, 1 Priority. The patient is always the center of our service. This philosophy was created to ensure the patient is the priority at all times.

“Hudec Dental will bring 40 years of experience in service NEO to Lakewood. We are different because we seek to listen to our patient’s needs and build long term relationships upon trust. We offer our own dental lab and in house specialists” adds Hudec.

This office is located at 14805 Detroit Ave. Lakewood, Ohio 44107.  If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call Carol the Office Manager at 216-228-6633 or 216-661-8888. We hope to serve you soon!
