The Hunt Dental Building at 839 Ninth Street in Arcata is a one-story stucco structure with a quasi pavilion in the center of the front facade. A recessed entry contains a glass-paned door with sidelights and a transom light overhead. Front windows on either side of the entry consist of a narrow window with a small upper-division and a larger window which repeats the divisions. Small windows are found in the west and south walls, but the east wall is without openings and is now covered with a vertical-board siding, added after the 1979 fire which destroyed the three-store building on the front of the property. The only notable changes are this siding and the plastic panes in the front windows on the east side of the entry. These panes should be replaced with glass.
