City leaders say Doctor Herron's move allows Pittsburg to get one step closer to becoming a medical hub. Doctor Herron will be working out of both the Columbus and Pittsburg offices.
"Pittsburg has been suffering from a low number of dentists. Several have retired and the ration of dentists to patients has gone up tremendously. There's really a need," says Dr. Robert Herron, Dentist.
The Pittsburg office is expected to open in June. Doctor Herron doesn't plan to hire new employees until he sees a great influx in patients. His staff will rotate offices depending on the day of the week.
