Dear Patient and Friend,
I hope everyone is safe and well!
With mixed emotions, I am writing this letter to announce my retirement from the practice of dentistry. Although I am in good health, I feel this is the right time for me and my family. After practicing for 37 years, the last 34 years at Gentle Dental Care, it has been an honor and a privilege for me to be your Dentist. I’ve been asked, what will I miss the most? The answer is not the practice of dentistry,but rather my conversation with you. No matter the topic, I enjoyed it. I thank you for that!
Gentle Dental Care will still be here. I have asked my partner and friend, Dr. Brad Strober, to take care of your dental needs in the future. He is an excellent dentist! Many, if not all of you, know or have been treated by him. You can be assured that he will continue to provide the highest quality of care that you are accustomed to receiving. Our Staff remains intact. They are the best!!
I thank you for your confidence, loyalty and most of all, your friendship throughout the years. It means more to me than I can ever express.
I wish you and your families all the best in the future. Keep Smiling!
Mark Messer, D.D.S., M.A.G.D.
