Danielle Hodge, her husband Matt, and their daughter joined members of the town council on June 5 for a grand re-opening ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Richardson Denture Clinic. The event was attended by council members Kirby Whitlock, Rob Pulyk, and Deputy Mayor Kevin Martin, alongside Mary Lee Prior, Manager of Economic Development for Vermilion, and Interim CAO Mike Van Der Torre. In a gesture of welcome, Danielle was presented with a plaque by the town officials.

Councillor Pulyk expressed his delight at the event, emphasizing the importance of community retention. “It’s great to see people staying in Vermilion. The younger generation staying around signifies the numerous opportunities available in Vermilion,” he said.

The Richardson Denture Clinic has been a vital part of Vermilion and its neighbouring communities since its establishment in 1971. Known for providing high-quality denture services with a personal touch, the clinic was founded by Bob Richardson and later led by Rick Donily, maintaining a legacy of quality craftsmanship and individualized care.

Danielle began her journey at the clinic in 2011 under Rick’s mentorship and now leads the clinic alongside denturist Carissa Farkash. With over 35 years of combined experience, Danielle and Carissa are dedicated to upholding the clinic’s tradition of handcrafted, high-quality dentures. Adding to the team’s expertise is Megan Letawsky, a licensed dental lab technician, who brings her devotion to the craft.

Reflecting on the clinic’s storied past and looking forward to a bright future, Danielle, her family, and the clinic team expressed their gratitude and commitment to the community.

“We look forward to maintaining the clinic’s reputation as a trusted destination for quality denture care in Vermilion and beyond,” said Danielle.

The re-opening marks a new chapter for the Richardson Denture Clinic, reinforcing its role as a cornerstone business in Vermilion dedicated to excellence in denture care.
