BIZ VOICE: New orthodontics centre coming to Chatham

Christen and Dr. Maxwell Abraham, along with Mayor Darrin Canniff and Matt Reaume of C-K Economic Development celebrate a new location for Abraham Orthodontics, which will be built at 729 St. Clair St. in Chatham.

An award-winning orthodontics centre is set to take shape in Chatham.

Dr. Maxwell Abraham and the Abraham Orthodontics team plan to build a spacious new building, a second centre to complement their Leamington office.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new $2-million structure to be located at 729 St. Clair St., took place July 22.

Local officials, including Mayor Darrin Canniff, were on hand.

Abraham Orthodontics is well known for its services as it has been providing orthodontic services to the region for the past six years.

The business operates on the premise of affordable and accessible care providing state-of-the-art orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign technology and Light Force, the world’s first 3-D printed braces.

“We are thrilled to be growing with this community and to better serve our current and future families,” Dr. Abraham said in a media release.

New clients at Abraham Orthodontics are offered a free orthodontic exam and consultation.

The team is anticipating a winter opening for the Chatham location.

An additional 1,200 sq. feet of space will also be available for lease at the new building.

Abraham was named Young Professional of the Year by the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce in 2020. He currently serves on the board of Erie Shores Healthcare and the Ontario Association of Orthodontists.
