It’s an exciting time to be an orthodontics patient with Dr. Mark McCollough! Over the last several months, constructions crews have been hard at work to create a space dedicated to orthodontic treatment at Dental Depot Northwest OKC.
Dr. McCollough and his team previously worked out of the Central OKC office, located at NW 23rd St. and Drexel Blvd. And while the space was renovated to make it ortho-friendly, the space limited their ability to serve patients as efficiently as they would have liked.
In this interview, Dr. Mark explains how this orthodontic-focused office came to be and what it will mean for his patients:
“When I joined Dental Depot about three years ago, the owners asked, ‘How can we make this [office] better?’ I said that incorporating an open bay allows us to be more functional and see more patients efficiently,” said Dr. McCollough. “The biggest thing is that all of our current locations – architecturally – have been designed for closed-bay facilities.
“Unlike in general dentistry, where you have to have closed rooms, in orthodontics, everybody is receiving the same care – that’s how we can [have an open bay]. This allows me, as the orthodontist, to see more people than what a general dentist could at one particular time,” said Dr. McCollough. “With high-end, well-trained orthodontic assistants – they’re capable of carrying out the orthodontic procedures after I review with the patient. Thus, allowing us to see more patients in a very efficient and quality manner.”

This 7-chair orthodontic suite is exactly what Dr. McCollough and his team envisioned when they discussed their needs with Dr. Glenn Ashmore and the construction teams. Included in the 7-chair total is a glassed-in consultation room for new patients to privately discuss their treatment questions with Dr. McCollough. Along with having a brand new space, patients will have more flexible scheduling options throughout the week – including appointments on Saturdays.
