Dentist to expand office, preserve old oak tree

A Mountain Road dentist plans to expand his practice with a new 3,500-square-foot building across from the Pasadena Post Office.

Dr. John J. Mosca, who has had offices at the Lake Shore Plaza for 10 years, said his new two-story building is being designed to preserve a massive, old oak tree near the edge of the road. The first floor of the building will house Dr. Mosca's practice. Professional offices will occupy the second floor.

The building should open by mid-1993.
