This Labor Day, I will celebrate my 30th anniversary in my private dental practice. This gives me a chance to thank all of you for your loyalty and support by both staying with me and by your referrals of colleagues, friends, and family. I also want to thank my staff for their help in treating our patients to wonderful care; Shirley has been with me on Saturdays for nearly thirty years and Marilyn has assisted me for twenty-four years. The remainder of our group, including Afsaneh, Karin, Amy, and Barbara have all been with us for nearly five years. That is a great achievement and the primarly reason we are all on the same page in delivering professional and personal care.
