"Dear Patients and Friends,
I am so very grateful to every single one of you, the loyal and lovely people I’ve met over the last quarter of a century. For many, a trip to the dentist is not something they look forward to and I hope you found that we made it as easy and enjoyable as we possibly could. It’s been especially rewarding to see multiple generations of families and to see you all grow (or age, depending on when we first met!). And I appreciate every recommendation you made to your friends and family as well: we were never short of customers!
A special word for my team here – they have supported me every step of the way and have got behind my vision, right from the shaky, nervous days when we left the NHS to the development of the high quality customer care which we were ultimately able to deliver. I’m proud that so many team members have stayed with me for so long and have got to know you all so well whilst doing so.
We began to make people aware of my forthcoming retirement back in May when I sold the Practice after a lengthy, Covid-delayed process and I am sorry that I was unable to share the news with each of you personally. My leaving date has been brought forward by mutual agreement and so from the end of July I will be walking or cycling off into the sunset.
I wish you all the very best for the future years.
