Negotiations are underway for a Wichita dental office to purchase the Marion dental clinic.
Ty and Terra Reusser, who operate R2 Center for Dentistry in Wichita, are in the process of finalizing the purchase of the practice of longtime Marion dentist Gerald Vinduska.
Vinduska announced in February that he and his family would move to Hutchinson for family reasons and that he hoped to sell his dental practice in Marion. Vinduska is working in Newton as dental director at Health Ministries Clinic.
Ty Reusser said the deal to purchase the practice at Marion is expected to be finalized in the imminent future.
Reusser said his roots go deep in Marion County — indeed, to his childhood growing up in Hillsboro.
“My parents lived in Marion about 10 years, and I have an older brother and sister,” Reusser said.
His parents moved to Hillsboro when his siblings were 8 and 10.
His sister, Diedre Serene, is director of Marion County Health Department. His brother, Layne Reusser, is a cardiologist who visits Hillsboro each month.
Both Reussers will see patients in Marion, he said, although their schedules have yet to be determined.
“We’re going to start July 1,” Reusser said.
All services offered by Vinduska will still be available, Reusser said. Orthodontics also will be available.
Some renovations to the building are in the works before the Reussers begin seeing patients, Reusser said.
Nevertheless, someone will be available to answer the phone and set appointments during the clinic’s normal hours.
Ty Reusser received his undergraduate degree from Kansas State University and pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery at University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in Lincoln, Nebraska. He is a member of The Academy of General Dentistry.
Terra Reusser studied at University of Nebraska before being accepted to Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in Lincoln, Nebraska. After receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, she began her career in Wellington. In 2009, the pair began working together in Wichita.
Both donate time to local charities and organizations. Terra Reusser has donated time to programs that provide dental services to uninsured Kansans.
