It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing the permanent closure of my practice, effective November 16, 2018. It has been a great pleasure providing for your dental care needs over the last three years, and it is not easy for me to give it up.
Though I understand this was not anticipated, there are many things that have pushed me to make this decision. I find this to be bittersweet, as I am excited to start a new chapter in my life but sad to end another one.
As of October 1, 2018, I will no longer accept new patients or start any new treatment with exceptions to emergency care until closure in November 16, 2018. As required by the Dental Board of Texas we ask that you sign this letter, at the labeled space below, acknowledging that you received this letter and return it back to us as soon as possible with the enclosed stamped envelope.
A copy of your treatment plan is included in this letter. Please refer to it for pending treatment you may require. This may be to treat cavities, gum/periodontal disease and/or bite (occlusal) maladies. Dental disease left untreated may result in pain, tooth loss or need for medical intervention. Delayed treatment may result in the need for more invasive procedures and a limitation of future treatment options. Please continue to seek dental care for routine check-ups and cleanings as well. It is my recommendation that you seek the care of a new dentist as soon as possible to complete any pending treatment. Your new dentist will probably require a comprehensive examination and may recommend a treatment plan that differs from your current one with additions or deletions of treatment recommended. If you have any questions regarding your treatment plan, diagnosis or risks/benefits of treatment, please do not hesitate to call the office. I would be happy to answer any question you may have.
Your dental records are confidential and your privacy is important to me. A copy can be transferred to another dentist or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. To do so, you can sign the enclosed authorization form to release your records. Upon request, you will be given a free copy of your digital dental record, including digital x-rays. If you would like a copy of your old paper records with old film x-rays, you may have a copy for a fee proportionate to the number of pages and x-rays in your file.
Finally, I would like to thank those who have given me constructive advice and encouragement throughout this time; especially my staff. It has been a privilege and a pleasure serving you.
