From the

General Manager

Every year, the excitement over Best of Hall starts to build earlier, the interest level rises faster, and the public’s support grows exponentially stronger. The Best of Hall 2019 winners have been announced, and more businesses, nonprofits and individuals have been recognized for being exceptional than ever before. It is amazing how support for the Best of Hall competition has grown over the past four years, culminating in hundreds of nominees, thousands of votes, and a broad sampling of the best the area has to offer in dozens of different categories. The area’s largest competition of its type has become an annual tradition for many of you, as evidenced by the fact we often are asked “When does the voting start?” months before the ballots are ready. This magazine features the best of the best, those entities that the people in our community have selected as being worthy of special recognition. We know from past experience that many of our winners take great pride in hanging the plaques, mounting the certificates and posting the window clings that proclaim that they are considered among the Best of Hall. We also know that such recognition helps customers in deciding with whom they prefer to do business. But more than anything, we know that the annual Best of Hall competition is a lot of fun, for those who participate by nominating and voting, for those who are honored by being nominated and receiving votes, and even for those who may fall a little short but become determine to win their category next year. This year, for the first time, we added to the fun with a special public event to allow potential voters to meet nominees at the beginning of balloting, and a second public event at which the winners were announced and recognized. Some of those chosen as Best of Hall are familiar names that have been winners in the past, while others are being recognized with the honor for the first time. If you don’t’ see your favorite local company in the winner’s list this year, make sure you nominate them next time and then vote to help them win the recognition they deserve. We hope you will show your appreciation for the superior job done by each of these winners by doing business with them in the year to come. Please join us in congratulating all of them for excellence in their chosen field. And for those already anxious to do it again, watch for details on the next round of nominations in about 10 months.

Memorial Park Funeral Homes & Cemeteries Best Funeral Home In most communities, it is rare that someone would have interaction with a local funeral home that isn’t sad and somber in nature. But that’s not true in Hall County, where the Memorial Park legacy is one of the most unique in the funeral service industry. Thanks to ongoing efforts at community outreach and involvement, thousands have interacted with Memorial Park in ways that have nothing to do with funeral planning or services. What makes Memorial Park so unique? How about: • A quarter-century of recognizing the efforts of public safety workers in the community. • A “community kitchen” to help in fundraising for nonprofits, schools and churches. • A presidents’ room gallery including

portraits of all of the nation’s presidents and historical sites associated with the presidents, in a room available to visit or to reserve for private functions. • Community contests for children, including naming the swans swimming in the cemetery lake, and for a gorilla statue on the grounds, and rewarding the winners with cash prizes. • Works of art, located on the cemetery grounds in a special Heritage Garden, with lifelike marble statues of 21 former presidents for local residents to appreciate in a contemplative surrounding. Much of the unique direction taken by the Memorial Park operation is directly attributable to its owner, Jack Frost. Having started in the business in 1956 by selling grave sites door-to-door, Frost was the first recipient of the lifetime achievement award presented by The

Southern Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association, and has owned Memorial Park since 1988. Frost has always looked for opportunities to be an integral part of the communities he serves, and to build relationships that go far beyond those traditionally associated with the funeral industry. “You have to be a self-motivator,” Frost said. “There’s absolutely no one behind you saying you’ve got to do this; you have to do that. It’s got to be yourself with the determination to succeed.” Self-motivation helped Frost to put together the most successful funeral service operation in North Georgia, with two Memorial Park facilities in Gainesville, one in Flowery Branch and one in Braselton. In addition to the funeral homes are an expansive cemetery, a crematorium, and special facilities for providing cremation and interment for family pets.


Our success can be summed-up in three words

Community, Compassion and Commitment.

Tracy Tesmer Best Home Remodeler, Best Kitchen & Bath Remodeler, Best Professional Contractor As North Georgia’s premier home, kitchen and bathroom remodeling firm, Tracy Tesmer Design/Remodeling (TTDR) has been offering custom designs for homeowners seeking professional remodeling services for a decade. That work has earned TTDR “Best of” honors in a variety of categories the past four years, culminating with three awards this year. “We take great pride in the quality of our work, and it’s an honor to have that work recognized by the community,” Tesmer said. Tesmer founded the Gainesville-based company in 2009 after owning a successful CASE Handyman franchise in Gainesville for 10 years, and has built a team of talented design/build professionals who work on a wide range of remodeling projects. He’s also shared his industry knowledge and professional advice with the community as co-host of “The Home Improvement Show with Tracy and Steve”

each Saturday morning on WDUN AM 550 and FM 102.9. He recently retired from the show after 15 years. Part of what sets TTDR apart is not only the extensive experience of the team, but a unique design and construction process that keeps projects on time and on budget. That process includes: • Initial Consultation - We’ll work together to determine the exact scope of the project, discuss budgets and explain our process, as well as discuss any preliminary design ideas. • Feasibility Study and Design – We develop designs that consider the existing structure and design-build trends, define scope for final plan, create floor plans and 3D-design renderings and identify zoning or covenant restrictions. • Construction Documents Creation – A design review with mechanical and structure experts during walk-through with our project manager, designer and tradesmen helps identify any structural issues.

• Material Selection – Clients meet with our designer to select materials, including plumbing and lighting fixtures, flooring, tile, cabinets, countertops and paint colors. • Construction – Procuring building permits (a crucial step), project scheduling, coordination of inspections and client review of project completion. Throughout construction you will receive regular communications from your project manager to keep you updated on your project’s progress. “It’s so rewarding to be a part of making someone’s dream or vision for their home a reality,” Tesmer said. Whether you are thinking of a kitchen remodel, a bathroom remodel, a whole home remodel, or a home addition, we are here to help and work with you every step of the way!

M & R Equipment Rental Best Heavy Equipment & Tractor When the Crumley brothers purchased Gainesville’s hometown rental equipment store just over a decade ago, they had no idea the growth that would be coming to North Georgia over the next ten years-nor the support of the community they would encounter along the way. “We unlocked the doors and hoped a customer would walk in,” said Nathan Crumley. “Lucky for us, customers have continued to trust us with their rental equipment needs, and we could not be more honored to serve them day after day.” Nathan, along with brothers Will and Don, are honored to receive the 2019 Best of Hall distinction for their family owned and operated business. They credit their success to their customers, who have entrusted M&R to supply them with everything from boom lifts to jack hammers to skid steers and more.

Since coming under new ownership in 2008, M&R Rental and Sales has grown its team of equipment rental experts and expanded its inventory to provide equipment to all of its customers, whether they be a large commercial construction company or a fearless weekend warrior. “We are raising families here, and we are committed to playing a positive role however big or small in the future growth and development of this community,” said Will Crumley. Their commitment to providing the highest level of service to their customers has prompted new and innovative ways for the business to handle the needs of a growing community. Multiple drivers now spend their days delivering and pickingup equipment across the North Georgia region. An experienced team ensures that equipment is well-serviced before being placed into the hands of a customer.

Front desk personnel guarantees walk-in customers are greeted promptly and that all questions are answered with clear and knowledgeable responses. The business, which was founded in 1967, now even boasts a robust website, www. mandrrental.com, to help visitors see the latest earth moving, aerial, underground and compaction equipment in M&R’s fleet. “We cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for our customers, who have provided crucial feedback and encouragement to us over the years,” Don Crumley said. “Our greatest privilege is serving them with the best in equipment and tool rentals day after day.” M&R Rental and Sales is open Mon. - Fri. from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. For more information, please call 770532-3331 or visit M&R Rental and Sales at 128 Enota Avenue in Gainesville.

Jones Smiles Best Dentist Thank you for voting us Best in Hall! Since 2011, Jones Smiles has helped thousands of Hall County residents and neighbors regain their confidence and maintain their oral health. “Our practice is committed to not only providing routine dental care, but also help for serious dental problems like missing or broken teeth, being embarrassed to smile, or even having a high fear of going to the dentist – all in a caring and comfortable environment.” “I think many of our patients have carried around the burden or embarrassment of their teeth for such a long time. Maybe they didn’t know anything could be done, or maybe they were afraid of ending up worse off or the expense” explains Dr. Jones. Whether replacing a mouthful of mismatched fillings, dental crowns, and bridges with beautiful new all-ceramic crowns and veneers, or even replacing missing teeth with dental implants—Dr. Jones wants all patients to know that modern dentistry provides many

options for a fresh start and a second chance at having beautiful, strong, naturallooking teeth again. Even in a single day. If you are afraid of going to the dentist— or haven’t been to the dentist for years— then you can also rest assured we see many patients that were originally very anxious. Our practice has treated literally thousands of patients who were also nervous about dental treatment. By offering sedation dentistry, our team has helped even the most nervous of patients finally relax in the dentist’s chair and get the dental work they need done, often in just one or two appointments. Patients can also relax in knowing that we are proud to promise no lectures or judgements, ever. Dr. Eric Jones earned his dental degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. He maintains professional memberships in the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, International Congress of Oral

Implantologists, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and Hinman Dental Society. Dr. Jones has also been awarded Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry, and Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Jones takes numerous postgraduate education courses each year and has received extensive training in IV sedation, dental implant surgery and restorations, occlusion (your bite), and esthetic dentistry, allowing him a multitude of methods for solving complex dental problems. In addition to private practice, Dr. Jones also lectures on cosmetic dentistry nationally to both students and dentists. This commitment ensures the highest level of care, both today and tomorrow. We are located at 7330 Spout Springs Road in Flowery Branch. Reach us by phone at (770)965-3048 or on the web www.JonesSmiles.com.

RESTORING CONFIDENCE. How Dr. Eric Jones is restoring more than just smiles.

F

or the past 10 years, Dr. Eric Jones has found a passion towards helping one particular kind of patient. “The first time I meet so many of our patients, they have been struggling for years with missing, broken, or teeth they feel embarrassed of,” explains Dr. Jones. Recent breakthroughs in technology, materials, and techniques now allow for patients to restore not only their smiles and function, but also confidence.

“Whatever the cause, I wish all patients knew that dentistry now has many options to restore their smiles and how they feel about themselves. From all-ceramic crowns and veneers, to Invisalign, and even deep whitening. There is just so much that we can now do.”

“Over the past 10 or 15 years, so much has changed in dentistry. Dental implants are the biggest breakthrough.” says Dr. Jones. For patients missing teeth, Dr. Jones uses 3D cone-beam technology and software, along with 3D printing to provide guided implant surgery. “With guided surgery, I know I can help patients to have as little time in the chair as possible, provide less discomfort, and be safer than ever before while still reducing costs in most cases,” explains Dr. Jones. For patients missing multiple teeth, new treatment options allow for replacing multiple, most or even all teeth across four to six dental implants—providing a fresh start and a second chance at having beautiful, strong, natural-looking teeth again. Even in a single day. While some patients come to Dr. Jones for broken teeth, many other come with broken down confidence. “I think many of our patients have carried around the burden or embarrassment of their teeth for such a long time. Maybe they didn’t know anything could be done, or maybe they were afraid of ending up worse off or the expense” says Dr. Jones. In some cases, it may be a mouthful of mismatched teeth from old fillings, dental crowns, and bridges. In other cases, crooked teeth, gapped, yellow or stained Dr. Eric W. Jones, DMD, FAGD, FICIO teeth are to blame.

“Personally, I always promise patients that there will be zero judgements, and with sedation dentistry I know that we can keep them completely comfortable.”

Asked what has kept many patients from seeking care in the past, Dr. Jones feels that fear is very common. In a worldwide study taken by over 18,000 people, over 60% reported dental fear or anxiety.

“For some patients, I know that it is fear of the actual procedure or having the work done, but for many, I also know that there is anxiety about being lectured to or judged” says Dr. Jones. “Personally, I always promise patients that there will be zero judgements, and with sedation dentistry I know that we can keep them completely comfortable.” If you have missing, broken, or embarrassment of your teeth, modern dentistry provides a way to not only restore your teeth but also confidence. According to Dr. Eric Jones, watching this transformation is what keeps the Jones Smiles team passionate about providing highest level of care both today and tomorrow. For more information on Dr. Jones and the Jones Smiles team, call 770-965-3048, or visit www.JonesSmiles.com.

Dermatology Associates of Northeast Georgia Best Dermatology Group Thank you for choosing us as the Best Dermatologist in Hall County! For over 30 years, it has been our goal to treat each of our patients like members of our own family. We have a wonderful team of providers and staff who treat a wide variety of medical and cosmetic skin issues, but our practice has a special interest in the detection and treatment of skin cancers. Dr. Rabb has been in practice in Gainesville since 1993. His focus is now surgery, (primarily Mohs skin cancer surgery) performing more than 1200 Mohs cases to date. What is Mohs? With an amazing cure rate of better than 99%, Mohs surgery has come to be accepted as the single most effec-

tive technique for removing Basal Cell and Squamous Cell Carcinomas, the two most common skin cancers. During Mohs surgery, a local anesthetic is used and thin layers of cancerous tissue are removed until only cancer-free, healthy skin remains. If your cancer is recurrent or large, is in a delicate area such as the face, hands or feet, or if your cancer is considered “aggressive,” then Mohs is the best choice for you! Dr. Rabb’s surgical scars are minimal, with most of his patients saying that their scars are barely detectable! Please call our office today at 770-536-7546 for an appointment and remember that you need an annual inspection of your skin to catch skin cancer early, when Dr. Rabb of Dermatology Associates of Northeast Georgia it can be easily treated.

Dr. Means

Everyone wishes to live a happy healthy life. If you were to look at your health as a chain, you would see a connected series of links. Your brain, heart, eyes, and other organs are links which must all work together to keep the body functioning. Each link plays a vital role in the chain and your overall good health. What happens if one of the links, such as the ability to hear, fails to work properly? North Georgia Audiology is committed to be “your link to better hearing.” Correcting a hearing impairment requires detailed knowledge of how ears respond to sound and familiarity with the latest hearing technologies. Patients appreciate the personal touch Drs. Means and Allen provide.

NGA believes it is crucial to establish a patient relationship based on professionalism and trust while focusing on their individual needs and lifestyle. Forget about what you know about hearing devices up to now; you’ll be amazed at how smart, how helpful, and how transforming better hearing can be. With our doctors’ expertise in providing solutions to hearing loss, patients can regain their confidence and are not embarrassed by inappropriate responses in conversations. The value of a strong hearing link is immeasurable. Our Doctors of Audiology are trusted by many local primary care physicians and have over 20 years of experience in treating the hearing needs of North Georgia.

Before Scott found his passion for helping people protect and preserve their lifetime savings, he began his career as an engineer in the computer industry, utilizing his degree in electronics from Phillips Business College in Mississippi.
