Dr. RossGreetings,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits as it is with a joyous heart I am sending you, as one of my most treasured patients, notice of the addition of Dr. Ozzie Rodas and his wife Taylor Rodas RDH to High Desert Dental. DR. Rodas and Taylor have been practicing in Farmington,N.M. for the past few years as part of the team at Sundance Dental. Fortunately for all of us they have decided to fulfill their dream of owning their own private dental practice and are purchasing my practice.

This year marked my 40th year of having the opportunity to have served you and your families oral health care needs. To say the least it has been my pleasure to have done so. I would like to say,”Thank you”, in all sincerity for having given me the honor of entrusting your oral health care needs to me.

Throughout my career I have endeavored to continue learning and practicing the latest proven clinical techniques and employ the latest technological advances in order to provide all of my patients with the finest care available. I am hopeful that you as a patient feel I have met my goal to be the best dental practitioner I am capable of being. To that end I am quite comfortable in entrusting your continued care to Dr. Ozzie Rodas as I believe his dedication to providing quality dentistry and oral health care is genuine and has been demonstrated both academically and clinically. To that point I am including with my letter a copy of Dr. Ozzie Rodas’s resume and a brief Biography as well as some reviews by his current patients. I am sure that you will come to appreciate Dr. Ozzie Rodas and his wife Taylor ( a dental hygienist) for their clinical skills and caring concern for their patients.

The announcement of my pending retirement is of course bitter sweet, as after 40+ years I have come to know you not only as patients but as friends and as such I hope we will continue to remain in contact socially if no longer professionally. As of September 15th, 2020, Dr. Ozzie Rodas will become the owner of High Desert Dental and I will assume a limited role in providing clinical dental procedures and as an acting consultant to Dr. Ozzie Rodas and High Desert Dental.

As many of you are aware, I have a myriad of outside interests beyond my practice and I am excited to have the opportunity to explore these interests while I am still physically and mentally able and eager to do so. Wish me luck, as I wish all of you a continuation of good health and maintaining your oral health care needs here with Dr. Ozzie Rodas and the staff at High Desert Dental.

In sincerity.
