After more than 25 years with this practice it’s time to hang up my scalers. I have been blessed to work in this environment where everyone loved and truly cared for each other; it is a very rare thing indeed. When Dr. Kessler retired I wanted to stay and give my personal farewell to as many of you as possible. The six months since have been incredible. The warm wishes, thankfulness for the care, vigorous handshakes and the warm hugs are all indelibly etched in my memories. To those of you I didn’t see, you have my warmest regards. Thank you all for your confidence, for trusting me with your children and allowing me to watch them grow, for the many enjoyable conversations, and for the privilege of providing you with care these many years. I know that I’m leaving you in the kind and capable hands of Dr. Saam. God Bless you all.
