New Business/Old Business Conflict

I work for an orthodontist, and we have a Google My Business page and are wanting to verify a new address that we have.  Unfortunately, the location we are moving into and want to verify was also previously an orthodontic office--just not ours.  The past orthodontist passed away, but when you search our address Google pulls up the old orthodontist's page and shows him for maps.  Like I said, we have created a My Business page for the new location, it just has not been verified due to renovations and a lack of a mailbox currently on the site.  Once I can verify the business will this help?

No, you need to notify Google that the other business is closed. Use the suggest an edit and mark it as closed. Once that is done, you will be able to add your new listing.
