Starting with one clinic in 1992, Dr. Carl Hash launched First Impressions on a mission to ensure that children enjoy a lifetime of healthy habits and smiles. Providing specialized, comprehensive oral care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special needs has proven to be a good business.

In the years that followed, the practice was joined by Dr. Cory Brimacombe, Dr. Carl Hash and Dr. Joshua Spiegl. With success of the partnership came growth of the business. The thriving dental practice opened a second clinic in 2000, and another in 2005. With 73 employees, including nine dentists, the business offers a state-of-the-art, child-friendly environment.

First Impressions used an SBA 504 loan to construct three new buildings and to acquire equipment for the growing practice. The business has experienced sustained growth with the opening of two additional clinics in 2010, and another facility in the summer of 2011. With this, First Impressions has been able to expand its markets to the more rural areas of north central Wisconsin, and broaden its base and diversity of patients that seek its specialty care.
