Mayo Denture Center was  welcomed to the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce Thursday afternoon with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

“It’s an official welcoming by the chamber, and we provide it gladly,” Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce President Les Cohen said.

Members of the chamber and the community attended the ceremony.

 

 Mayo Denture is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is located at 1041 Chetco Ave.

The center opened Nov. 1.

“Opening my own place is a dream of mine,” co-owner Kismet Mayo said. “I grew up in this business. It’s always been my dream to continue in my family’s footsteps.”

The center, which is owned by Kismet and her husband Chris Mayo, offers complete dentures and partials, relines and repairs, as well as  implant retained dentures.

“We’re the only denturist in the area that does implant retained dentures,” Kismet said.

Chris and Kismet opened because the service is underserved in the community.

“It’s a service that Brookings needs,” Kismet said. “It’s my goal for everybody to know that we’re here. To know that we’re affordable and have quality.”

 Kismet grew up in the area, worked as a nurse for 20 years and has degrees in Denturism and Advanced Dental Pathology. Chris is a nurse.

“I’ve done it my whole life. It’s rewarding to me,” Kismet said. It can be very life changing for a patient who is not able to eat.”

Cohen said the chamber is thrilled to see people like Chris and Kismet come back to Brookings.

“We’re really excited about that,” he said.

Tech workers filed a class action lawsuit against Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Google Inc (GOOGL.O), Intel Inc (INTC.O) and Adobe Systems Inc (ADBE.O) in 2011, alleging they conspired not to poach one another's employees in order to avert a salary war. The case, closely watched in Silicon Valley, was largely built on emails among top executives, including late Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who agreed not to approach each others employees with job offers.
