Business Briefcase

Welcome back, readers, to another edition of Business Briefcase! We welcome readers to come back each week to stay updated on everything new.

This week we share a community event, Peoria Chamber happenings and a nonprofit expansion! Let’s get to it!

First is the expansion of St. Vincent de Paul’s Arizona Oral Health Center at the Virginia G. Piper Medical & Dental Clinic. Dr. Scott Myers joined as its clinical dental director, and the office went from eight to 16 dental chairs. The expansion will allow the clinic to treat 10,000 patients annually — 4,000 more people than previously.
