Despite economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, limited development space available in Keller’s Old Town district remains a hot commodity.

Keller City Council on Aug. 4 unanimously approved a special-use permit for the construction of Just for Grins, a nearly 11,000-square-foot dental office, at 466 N. Main St., Keller.

The new building will include a number of unique architectural features, such as a clock tower, and will provide an appealing entrance to the Old Town Keller zoning district, according to Community Development Director Julie Smith.

“This will be an impressive structure on the north end of our Old Town Keller district and serve as a gateway to Old Town Keller,” Smith said. “This building [will] really elevate the area.”

Located southeast of the Johnson Road and Main Street intersection, the new dental office will feature a brick and stone facade with metal roofing. The main building will be 35 feet high with an additional 20 feet that will include a clock tower and lightning rod.


The building will be the new office location for dentists Dr. Jonathan Angwin, Dr. Kristen Angwin, Dr. Ryan Angwin and Dr. Cortney Steele. It will replace the group’s current practice at 681 S. Main St., Ste. 300, Keller.

“We currently have four dentists and will add another dentist and an orthodontist at the new location,” Jonathan Angwin said. “We provide all types of services.”

To help mitigate area residents’ concerns over drainage and privacy, the project includes construction of a retention pond and masonry screening walls on the north and east property lines.

“This will be a beautiful building,” Mayor Pat McGrail said. “We appreciate them keeping their business in Keller.”
