Office History

Our office has a long and storied history here in Johnson City.  In the spring of 1986, Dr. Bill Marusich took over the practice of Dr. Robert Kaley located on Main Street in what is now part of the UHS complex.  Dr. Bob, and/or his dad Dr. Myrle Kaley, had practiced at the same location since the 1920's.  Dr. Bob Kaley was an excellent, well respected practitioner who helped Dr. Bill greatly in continuing the practice.

In short order the practice grew dramatically and by 1988 our practice was in need of an additional dentist.  Fortunately, at that time Dr. Roger Conti was finishing his general practice residency at Strong Memorial hospital in Rochester and was looking to come back to his hometown to practice Dentistry. Dr. Bill and Dr. Roger began practicing together in the summer of 1988 and are partners to this day.

By 1992 the practice had outgrown the original facility so we purchased and renovated our current office.  The building we are in was recently designated a historical landmark of the village of Johnson City as it dates back to the days of Leicestershire, NY.  We have authentic photographs of our building from the 1930’s and 1950’s on display in our reception area.  This building was the residence and dental office of Dr. Joseph Sullivan until the 1970's after which it was the dental office of his son Dr. Richard Sullivan until 1992.

Even though our office has homey atmosphere, and a long history in the dental profession, we are a modern, advanced dental practice.  We feature technology such as digital computer enhanced imaging, laser dentistry, non-surgical periodontal treatment, and dental implants.  We offer advanced, caring treatment in all phases of general and cosmetic dentistry. Our office team are indeed a "family" as Deb, Sandy, and Diana have been with Dr. Bill since 1986!

In the summer of 2011 we were pleased to welcome Dr. James Marusich to our practice.  Dr. Jim offers state of the art techniques with a caring touch.  He is a welcome addition to our team.

We look forward to seeing you for an appointment soon!
