Dear Patients
It is with many mixed emotions that I announce my retirement. I still love doing dentistry. As a career, dentistry has provided me with intellectual challenge and artistic expression. In the practice, I have met and cared for so many wonderful patients. I will dearly miss them. Over the years I have worked with many great team members, who were the source of my success. I could not have been successful in taking care of all my patients without their abundant compassion and skill. I want to especially acknowledge Leann Hart and Stefanie Zednik, who have been there for over 20 years.
It has been my pleasure to serve all my patients over the last 31 years. I will truly miss all of you. Finally, I want to acknowledge the special relationship I have had with Dr. Eric Fort. From the time he was an associate, through the partnership, to the time when I worked for him, we have been like brothers. We have gotten along so well over the years because of our openness, honesty, and integrity. We have shared the same drive for clinical excellence resulting in many hours training in some of the best,advanced dental learning in the world. I know that I leave my patients in great hands with Dr. Fort.
If you are in the middle of treatment, I will continue your care with specially arranged appointments to finish the treatment. I have already spoken to many of you, but if not, please call the office to make arrangements. You may also continue your case with Dr. Eric Fort or Dr Jeff Kim.
In the future I will be spending more time with my wife, Dr. Margaret Lee, who retired from the practice 3 years ago. We will continue fostering dogs for Brookline Labrador Rescue. We will both maintain our license in order to do volunteer work at Community Volunteers in Medicine.I will also continue to serve the PA Academy of General Dentistry as the treasurer and the director of the educational PEAK master track program. Finally, I will continue to grow my investing and consulting businesses which will result in a good bit of travelling. Through those travels, I am excited to continue to meet and help my fellow dentists and investors so that we can better serve patients and the greater community.

Dr. Shelly and Dr. Lee took the time to explain the work I needed in detail, and the staff also explained the billing very well. I will recommend West Chester Dental Arts to all my family and friends.
