Local dentist finds the right place for the next chapter


With that much history attached to the rifle, it is no wonder the piece takes center stage in the living room.

“I picked up the powder horn somewhere along the way,” added Pierce, who served in the Army Dental Corps in World War II. “And the Civil War picture – I just really like it.”

Surrounding his three special treasures are a wealth of books – many of them about military history.

“If we would have purchased small pieces to accommodate all the books he has, the rooms would have looked cluttered,” said Phelps. “Having these cabinets built enlarged the room, particularly because they were taken to the ceiling. Extending them to the ceiling helps them become one piece. I strived to have it look like it was part of the facility, but they can still be broken down if he ever decides to move.”

Almost all of his furniture is new. Leaving behind many of his old pieces, he only retained his bedroom furniture and one interesting antique table in the living room.

“We have both seen people move into a condo and take everything with them,” he said. “They look very cluttered and I didn’t want that.”

The antique table is a tavern card table with two levels. Players can keep their cards and money on the lower level so that the prying eyes of opponents are obstructed. The flat surface of the top level leaves plenty of space for laying down the winning card and keeping a frosty drink handy.

“This is something he’s had for so many years that I insisted he keep it,” said Phelps.

Phelps and Pierce had enjoyed a great working relationship. She reports that he was easy to please and he highly praises her results. In addition, they both mentioned how easy it was to work with the facility.
