Iron Block is a prominent downtown building that is a significant piece of Milwaukee history. With that in mind, Dental Associates took every step possible to return the Iron Block to its original stature and elegance. Working with their lender and MEDC, the company secured an attractive financing structure that allowed them to restore the Iron Block back to its glory.
Born in Milwaukee, with the first dental center located on 16th Street, Dental Associates is committed to remain a Milwaukee-based company. Dental Associates is Wisconsin’s largest family-owned dental group practice with 10 offices throughout the state and nearly 800 team members. Dental Associates provides complete family dental services, both general and specialty dentistry – from pediatric dentistry to specialized dental services for older adults – with a focus on excellent care that is affordable, accessible and personalized. The 50,000 square foot Italianate Renaissance Revival style building will be the corporate headquarters of Dental Associates. It will also house Dental Associates’ first-ever downtown Milwaukee dental center on multiple floors of the building.
