Copper Mill Office Park was the site of a groundbreaking ceremony Oct. 13 for Louisiana Dental Center.

Dental center founder and owners were joined by community and business leaders to help kick off the start of construction on the center’s newest location, 1081 Copper Mill Blvd., Zachary.

Scheduled to be completed by February, Louisiana Dental Center is expected to employ 12 to 15 staff members from the community.

Founded in New Orleans in 1980, the group practice combines comprehensive general and specialty dentistry with accessibility and affordability at 13 locations across south Louisiana, a news release said. The Zachary site will mark the dental center’s 14th location.
