You may already have received a letter from Dr. Chang about his retirement, but if not, here are some thoughts he wanted to share with his patients: 

“I am truly grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to serve your dental needs. I have had the opportunity to watch some of you grow from childhood to adulthood and bring in your own children for dental care. During this time we shared the growth and development of dental technology and knowledge but always tempered with caring, respect, and concern for the best outcomes. I am referring you to the care of a nearby dental office with an outstanding reputation, extremely capable dental clinicians and a warm friendly staff. Excellence in Dentistry is led by Dr. Kendall Skinner, who not only have outstanding clinical skills but have created a warm caring team. They will continue to provide excellent dental care.”
