Tucker Community Spotlight - February 2018
Keller Knapp Real Estate
Sage Dental is a name you wouldn’t have known a couple years ago. Now, after a rapid expansion across the Metro Atlanta area, Sage is the new name in dentistry.
“We started out in the Marietta location,” says Rhonda Cox, the Director of Operations for Sage Dental. “We opened our East Cobb location. We moved into Johns Creek and we’ve continuously been building. We’re in Cumming, Buford, Tucker, Suwanee.”
That’s a lot of activity in just about 12 months’ time. Cox and her team cut the ribbon on their newest location at Tucker Meridian Shopping Center on January 11. She explains the Sage Dental approach of prioritizing patients is what has enabled the company’s rapid growth.
“We value relationships…building relationships with each one of our patients,” Cox says. “We want them when they come into our office to feel like they are our only patient.”
Whether someone is a patient or not, Sage Dental is hoping to connect with people in these new markets by getting out and serving the community.
“We are firm believers in outreach programs,” Cox explains. “We like to look for areas where we can go into the community, build relationships and give back to the community and get the area healthy, as well.”
Sage Dental’s new Tucker office is located at 4280 Lavista Road. You can find them online at www.mysagedental.com.
Curt & Kathie Walker
“I would like to nominate Curt and Kathie Walker for Citizens of the Month. Curt and Kathie are long-time Tucker residents.
“A few years ago, they helped found the Tucker Running Club. In 2015, I moved to Tucker and didn’t know one person. After joining the running club, I now know people all over Tucker. Curt and Kathie are the epitome of hospitality. They welcome everyone into the group, whether beginning walkers or competitive runners. Though they compete in the Masters Elite teams with the Atlanta Track Club, they are always willing to slow down and encourage everyone. They schedule runs around Tucker and we visit Tucker restaurants afterward to refuel. When we have runs outside of Tucker, we represent Tucker in force, wearing our TRC shirts, always with a photo taken by Curt and posted on social media.”
Nomination by Dr. Priscilla Hammond
“Curt Walker maintains Tucker Running Club’s enthusiasm and morale by constantly creating events and having a steady routine that gives us a sense of belonging to a solid effort.
“I think Curt is an outstanding member of the Tucker community. He looks out for the physical and mental health of the club members and the community. And I know the club members appreciate that very much, as I certainly do.”
