New Dentist Could Re-open Old Office
Dr. David Jameson's retirement left Bushnell without a dentist. The city has moved to fill the cavity in the community.
Mayor Steve Russell said, “We had a team of people here made up of several interested people that might like to work with us and get the word out there that we were interested in having a dentist in Bushnell.”
Representatives from the Bushnell Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Corporation pitched in. He said Kim Pierce of the Macomb Area Chamber of Commerce also helped with the search.
The city has already had an applicant who contacted Dr. Jameson himself. Russell can't name the person. He said the city is offering an incentive package that includes a low-interest loan of up to $75,000 for the purchase of Jameson's old office and the purchase of new equipment.
