To my valued patients, 

It has been my great pleasure and opportunity over the last 34 years to work with you and serve your dental needs in my office.  Some of you have been my patients since before this office was built and our Prescott Valley adventure in dentistry began.  We were blessed greatly to build this office in 1994 and begin to establish our own practice haven here.  It has been a great ride for sure and we have been so blessed with great office staff to assist us in care for your needs over the years.  We are so thankful for our wonderful hygienists, office managers, assistants and other helpers through the years who have been there for us and for you to help us on this journey.  We are so grateful for the relationships that we have established and the opportunities that we have shared over the years.  Unfortunately, it has become so much more complicated to manage a dental office.  My ability to keep up and to keep the energy needed for this office has waned in recent months and I am ready to pursue other adventures after 34 years.  

We have tried very hard to find another dentist to take over this practice and continue our work here.  We have worked with a broker who specializes in practice transitions, and we have worked with several potential dentists to take over; however, we have been unsuccessful in finding the right situation.  There are so many factors and important pieces to agree on and work out in a transition and it has proven very difficult.

After much contemplation I have decided to close this office effective September 30th, 2022.  I will be finishing up some “in process” cases as I am able to fit them in, or other perviously discussed treatment on a case by case basis.  I’m sorry that I cannot finish up every filling or other treatment that may prove necessary.  I will likely be working a few less days in the office starting the middle of August due to some staffing and other issues.  You can always call 928-772-2474 for more information or records.

Depending on your insurance, location and other needs I suggest you may use one of the following dental offices.  Please verify with your insurance!
