Occidental Management’s Offices at Cranbrook will be home to an expanding oral surgery practice and a nearly year-old medical practice with a focus on improving cognition.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery will open its first east-side office in a 1,800-square-foot suite in the Class A office park at 10111 E. 21st St.

A couple of doors down, physician James Seberger will occupy a 1,445-square-foot suite for Performance Health, a practice he founded with Jeree Forbes.

John Gagnon, founder of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, said he has for several years wanted to add an east Wichita location. Now that he has a full-time partner, oral surgeon Matthew Robertson, he can do that.

“The practice has grown to the point where we need to expand,” said Gagnon, who has practiced in Wichita for 15 years and who operates an office at 3510 N. Ridge Road.

Gagnon said the new location will feature two surgery rooms as well as a lobby that will look like a living room instead of a waiting room. He said the focus of his practice is on patient service and comfort.

Performance Health offers family medicine care and focuses on improving a patient’s overall health through measuring and improving cognition.

“We’re able to follow where your cognition is and improve it,” Seberger said. “As you improve cognition, you improve the body.” Joining Seberger and Forbes, who holds a doctorate in education and specializes in cognition, will be chiropractor Steven Howard and physician Renea Schuler, Seberger said.

Stephanie Wiens of Occidental handled the lease for Performance Health, and Gary Oborny, Occidental’s CEO, handled the lease for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

Chad Stafford, Occidental’s president, said that with the addition of Performance Health and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, the first building in the development – 12,240 square feet – is now 78 percent leased. Union State Bank and neurologist Eva Henry are the other tenants.

Stafford said the first building should be ready for occupancy in early April.

Also at the Cranbrook site, the footings for its second building, which will be more than 10,000 square feet, have been constructed.

Stafford said that building is more than 50 percent pre-leased by unnamed tenants.

Oborny said he’s hoping that construction on a third building could begin later this year.

“I would love to be in the second phase of construction by fall, which I think is doable,” Oborny said.

The development encompasses eight acres, three of which will be a pond.
