Ancon Construction: Leading the Way in Dental Commercial Construction


Welcome to an insightful journey into the realm of dental commercial construction, where the vision of creating modern clinics that cater to both the practitioner and patient is an art in itself. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the dental industry in the United States employs approximately 120,740 general dentists (May 2022), many of whom aspire to establish their own dental clinics after gaining experience. However, the process of designing and constructing dental clinics goes beyond standard commercial projects, demanding a unique blend of creativity, compliance, and collaboration.

Since 1975, Ancon Construction has been at the forefront of the construction industry, continuously evolving its service lines to provide innovative solutions for its clients. Founded by Andy Frech, Ancon Construction’s journey took an inspiring turn in the ’80s and ’90s when Andy made a momentous decision to sell the company back to its employees. This move laid the foundation for the unique culture of Ancon Construction – a culture that revolves around our employees and their ownership, empowering them to thrive and take ownership of every project.

Designing a Dental Clinic: Beyond the Ordinary

Designing a dental clinic requires a team to listen to understand the specific requirements, distinct from typical office spaces. Plumbing and electrical designs play a critical role in dental clinics, demanding expertise from architects well-versed in this specialized space. You want an architect who ensures an environment that caters precisely to your needs and those of your patients. “A successful dental project is a result of a team effort of qualified professionals focused specifically on your vision, culture, and equipment for the practice,” shares Ben King, an in-house architect with Ancon Construction.
