Construction is underway on a three-story multi-tenant building on Route 202 near the intersection with Route 101 in Peterborough. The building, occupying what was formerly 104-108 Grove Street, is designed to have a dentist’s office on the first floor, and three apartments in the upper floors.

It’s owned by Dr. Tae Kwon, DDS, MMSc of Monadnock Perio & Implant Center in Keene and his wife, Dr. Ji Hai Yang, DDS, who currently works at Horizon Dental Associates in Brattleboro.

Yang intends to start her own dental practice in the space, Kwon said on Thursday. “We’re very excited, I must say,” he said. “Nowadays, a lot of dentistry and medical care is moving big,” he said, but they’re moving in the opposite direction, and hope to offer a small, locally owned, general practice option for the Peterborough area that can serve all members of a family. Kwon and Yang live in Keene. They’re still working on a name for the business, but “Our Town Dentistry” is the leading candidate as of now, Kwon said.

Kwon said he was surprised at the community interest in the construction, as well as in the apartments the building will include. “People are having a hard time finding rentals, I think,” he said, but that he and his wife are happy to find themselves in a position to help with the housing crunch, and will have more information on rental prices and move-in dates as the construction advances.

Yang’s dental practice is aiming to open in October, although construction is expected to complete somewhere between September and November, Kwon said.
