“… for it is in giving that we receive.”

It is with bittersweet emotion that I write to inform you that after almost thirty years of practice here at The Dental Center, I will be retiring from private practice effective January 1, 2022. After numerous conversations with my family, we decided that the time has come to open a new chapter in my life. The Dental Center will be moving to a new facility in the coming months, and I will be replaced by a new dentist joining the practice, Dr. Dallin Burk. It has been both a pleasure and an honor to serve your dental needs over these years; I shall miss you all and remember you fondly.

I highly recommend and encourage you to continue your relationship with The Dental Center. I have respected and trusted them for almost thirty years, which is the highest form of recommendation one can give. I wish you all only the best with your dental needs and peace, prosperity, health, and happiness for you and all yours.
