WICHITA — The space at the northeast corner of 21st and Oliver has sold, but for a while you'll still see the same man out there mowing the lawn.
He's not the gardener. He's dentist Michael Williams, whose self-named practice has been at the property for three decades.
Last week, Williams closed on a deal to sell two lots he owns at the corner.
"We're leasing our own space," says his wife, Tracy, who also is the practice administrator.
The dental office, which offers full family services including orthodontia, is moving to a former chiropractic space in Remington Park on east 21st Street between Webb Road and Greenwich.
"Oh, we're still on 21st Street," Tracy Williams says she's been assuring customers.
Once their concerns are allayed, she says, "They're excited for us."
Currently, the practice is in 1,900 square feet.
"We're squeezed to the ... max," Tracy Williams says.
Still, she and her husband weren't necessarily looking to move.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
