On Thursday, December 13, 2012, Diamond State Dentistry, owned by Lucinda K. Bunting, broke ground for new offices in Independence Commons on Airport Road in Milford. Currently, Diamond State Dentistry has two dentists, Dr. Bunting and Dr. Andrea N. Puddicombe, who has a penchant for pediatric dentistry. The new space will allow the practice to expand, and a new dentist, Dr. Philip O. Sels, has already agreed to join the practice.

Dr. Bunting, who grew up in Selbyville and attended Indian River High School, came to Milford after attending college at the University of Delaware and studying dentistry at Temple University. She began her practice in Dover and also had an office in Georgetown before beginning her practice in Milford, where her husband was from.

“The new space will have twelve treatment rooms, and our current location only has six, so this doubles our capacity,” Dr. Bunting explained. “Right now, we have twelve women working the office, and it gets just a little bit crowded.” In addition, Dr. Bunting says that the new building allows for expansion as the practice grows.

The new, 5,200 square foot building will be built at 215 West Liberty Street in Independence Commons, near Nephrology Associates and Response Computer Group. Dr. Bunting hopes to bring her trademark wooden tooth with her to the new building. The wooden tooth sits outside of the current office and is beginning to show some wear and tear. Dr. Bunting is afraid it may not survive the move.

“The tooth was created by Dennis Beach, who created the Bethany Beach totem pole. It is starting to show some weather damage, and has a few holes in it. Maybe I should give it a few fillings,” Dr. Bunting joked. Construction on the building is expected to begin on Monday, December 17.
