Over the years, Dental Associates Fond du Lac has established itself as one of Fond du Lac’s best dental clinics, winning or being a finalist in the Readers’ Choice Awards each of the last six years. “Our clinic has been a part of the Fond du Lac community since 1996, and our focus since day one has been to provide the very best, most patient-centered care to this community,” says Barb Moser, Practice Manager at Dental Associates Fond du Lac. Dental Associates Fond du Lac features general and specialty dentistry including pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry.
Dental Associates’ growth in Wisconsin communities continues, with construction in progress for a new clinic in West Milwaukee scheduled to open in November. Its two newest clinics in Waukesha and Howard opened in July and August, respectively.
Dr. John G. Gonis founded Dental Associates in 1973. With a dedication to service and a sincere desire to see people smile, Dr. Gonis served the needs of a very under-served Spanish community. Then in 1986, Dr. Gonis wanted to spread the smiles, so he established a second Dental Associates location in Wauwatosa, which was also considered the corporate headquarters. From that point on, the smiles kept widening throughout northeastern Wisconsin: Appleton in 1992; Kenosha and Green Bay in 1994; Fond du Lac in 1996; North Appleton and Greenville in 2007; and Sturtevant and Franklin in 2011. In 2014 a downtown Milwaukee dental clinic opened in the historic Iron Block Building, a 50,000 square foot Italianate style building first constructed in 1860 during Abraham Lincoln’s presidency. This completely restored building houses the corporate offices, as well as a clinic on multiple floors.
What once was a small office serving only one location is now an AAAHC (Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care) Accredited organization of nearly 800 staff members serving 14 locations throughout eastern Wisconsin, from Green Bay to Kenosha.
