Charleston, SC – Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery is expanding, focused on bringing more healthcare options to the growing North Charleston community. After breaking ground in May, construction is officially underway with a projected completion date of spring 2019.
Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery remains dedicated to serving the Lowcountry, despite challenges in the project’s early stages. After COAFS announced plans for expansion and purchased the land in 2012, an Army Corps of Engineers’ survey revealed that some of the land was considered “protected wetlands.” COAFS revised their plans to ensure no damage to the environment. This delay set the project nearly two years behind schedule, but was deemed necessary to protect the land our community values.
Now that construction has begun at 78 Ingleside Boulevard, Boyer Construction, the same developer hired to build COAFS’ Mt. Pleasant office, does not foresee any additional setbacks, aside from weather-related delays. The state-of-the-art, 15,000-square-foot building will be conveniently located in the Medical Park and will feature solar panels on its roof. COAFS will occupy the building’s first floor, but is currently seeking leasers for the other two levels.
“We are so excited to continue to grow in order to provide access to the very best in dental technology and service,” said Dr. Edward Strauss.
The Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery team is confident that the end result will be worth the wait. Patients in the area are excited for the project’s completion as well, eager to receive top-notch care closer to home. Since opening their first office in 2005, Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery has grown its team of surgical professionals and opened new offices as well. Five convenient locations exist today, including four in the Greater Charleston area and one in Bluffton. Each office is committed to providing the personalized, state-of-the-art treatment patients deserve.
Oral surgery patients are in the very best hands with Dr. Aaron Sarathy, Dr. Edward Strauss, Dr. A. Drane Oliphant and Dr. D. Graham Lee.
