The Greater Roslyn Chamber of Commerce welcomed Dr. David Kashan MD PC, an all-inclusive plastic surgery medical office, to the Roslyn community with a ribbon-cutting Thursday evening.

The ribbon-cutting for Kashan’s business marked the fifth this year, preceded by other businesses, including Concierge Pediatrics and Orwashers Bakery.

Kashan’s office, which he said has a goal of helping community members “feel the best in their own skin,” has been open for about six months. He said the ribbon-cutting served as a great way for him to engage with the community, meet other business owners, support one another and make connections.

“We wanted to do something also just for the community and have everyone get a chance to meet us in person,” Kashan said. “We felt like this was a good way of getting the word out that the office is up and running.  We’re seeing patients already.”

Kashan said it was nice to see the support from his immediate community as well as from people from the surrounding areas of Long Island, Queens and Westchester who attended the event.

“We absolutely love the support,” he said.

At the ceremony, Kashan gave a speech thanking the community along with friends, community members and public officials who also spoke. Kashan was presented with a Ten Tier Diamond Award for him and his business. The ribbon-cutting celebration featured sushi, custom-made cookies and champagne.

Kashan said while he and his staff were excited to host the ribbon-cutting to celebrate the business opening, it was just as much about showing his appreciation for the community’s support.

“As much as it was for us to throw a party for the opening, it was also to throw a party to thank the community for really being so supportive,” Kashan said.

Barbara Kaplan, the chamber’s vice president of marketing and public relations, said the chamber has been hosting ribbon-cuttings for years.  She has planned the events for the past six years.

She said that ribbon-cuttings are a great way for local businesses to be introduced to the community. Ribbon-cuttings are held for businesses typically within their first year of opening.

“The chamber wants local businesses to succeed,” Kaplan said. “The ribbon-cuttings make a newsworthy event out of their grand opening.”

Kaplan added that the chamber gets many requests from local businesses to partake in their regular ribbon-cuttings “as it is an opportunity to celebrate, enjoy some food and make a toast for much success.”

“Everyone loves our giant scissors and beautiful red ribbon,” Kaplan said.

He applauded the chamber’s implementation of ribbon-cuttings as it helps local businesses that are starting out and need help growing their business. He said he would like to invite community members to come by their office and meet him and his staff.
