About Hutchinson Family Dentistry

Want to know more about Hutchinson Family Dentistry? Here you’ll find more information about us, our historic building, the fish tank, the Les Kouba artwork and more.

The Beginning

Hutchinson Family Dentistry was established in 2012. Our dentist office is a result of the merger of two highly respected Hutchinson dentists, Dr. Steven Flinn, and Dr. David Mach. Hutchinson Family Dentistry now has three highly skilled Hutchinson Dentists on staff including Dr. Steven Flinn, Dr. David Mach, and Dr. Jorey Heit. They work together in a convenient location to offer progressive dental technology with extended office hours, along with flexible scheduling.

No need to leave Hutchinson! Simple cosmetic dental procedures of teeth whitening or tooth-colored filings to comprehensive smile designs and advanced surgical procedures can be completed directly in our office. We pride ourselves on convenience to accommodate our patients! 

Our Historic Dental Office

We relish the fact that we were able to locate our office in a building with such fantastic history!  It was very important to us to preserve such a facility, as opposed to building in a completely new location.

We have done a lot of research about our location through Hutchinson Leader news articles and advertisements; studies prepared at the time this property was offered for sale; and a few artifacts we found during our renovation. We want to know everything we can learn about our building and its past and hope that you will share what you know.

As of 1893, the 36 West portion of our property was developed as a stable for the adjoining Merchant Hotel that was located on the corner of Main Street and Washington Avenue. By 1923, this property was redeveloped with two buildings separated by an alley. The 36 West building housed an auto repair facility. The 40 West building was constructed as a steam laundry and operated under the name Hutchinson Steam Laundry. Lee Motors moved into the auto repair place after 1937 when the Fallon Garage, where it had been operating, was torn down to make room for the State Theater.

In March 1946, Sears announced it would open a retail store in the 36 West building. Before opening, Sears expanded the building with a 22 foot by 70 foot addition to the west which effectively attached the 36 West building to the 40 West Building. In addition, Sears remodeled the main floor of the 36 West building and its basement. The store opened in May with huge crowds.

Our Artwork

All of the art in our building is from local artists. In our reception area, we feature a Les Kouba print, licensed from Kouba, Inc. You will find many unique pieces of local art throughout our office, all with the purpose of bringing our community into our office.

Our Fishtank

A unique feature of our office is the fish tank. Our aquarium is all natural and features the type of fish and weeds you would find in local lakes and streams. This is another way we try to bring the comfort of our area inside.

Our Windows

Some of our exterior windows feature historical and current photos from the community. On the front of our building, you’ll find a historical photo of what the building you used to be, an ice cream delivery facility. On the exterior facing operatories, you’ll find a changing selection of photos from local artists.
