Dental office unveils new office look with ribbon cutting

Dr. Julie R. Sams was met with hugs, smiles and congratulatory words Thursday evening as she unveiled the newly renovated Julie R. Sams Family Dentistry. The brand-new downstairs is now equipped with seven operating rooms and more sitting space for customers. Sams said the night could not have been more perfect as her family, friends and patients gathered around to see the updates to the office.

“I’ve been overwhelmed by the love and support everyone gave me today,” she said. “I was seeing patients and the girls called me to the front, and there were truckloads of flowers and plants coming from our patients and those that have supported us.”

Each room was filled with the flowers and plants donated to Sams, and she said she could not be happier than to share this moment with the people that believe in her business.

“This is something to let the patients see the final product, and just enjoy being with us,” she said. “We want the patients to see what we have to offer. It’s for me, but it’s for them also.”

Sams said even though she was the center of attention, God was to be glorified in everything she has accomplished with her business.

“I give glory to God, and I would not be able to do this without Him,” she said. “My biggest hope is that this glorifies Him, and that through this, people see that Selma is alive and it’s growing. There’s revival here and I hope that others will join in on that spirit.”

After the meet and greet, everyone headed outside for the official ribbon cutting with Sheryl Smedley, executive director of the Selma and Dallas County Chamber of Commerce.
