Dear Patient,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me, and my father before me, to take care of your dental needs.

I have sincerely enjoyed having you in the practice and getting to know you both personally and professionally. After 35 years, I feel that the time has come for me to step back, and as of February 14, 2018, will be merging my practice with Bloomfield Avenue Dental Associates here in Drexel Hill.

With the merger, my sister, Lorie Shoup, will move to the Bloomfield Avenue Dental Associates office and continue to be a hygienist.

In order to make good on your level of trust and confidence, I carefully considered a number of qualified dentists who were interested in assuming the practice, attempting to find someone who will be able to live up to your high expectations. I believe I have found such a person in Dr. Barbosa, the owner of Bloomfield Avenue Dental Associates. Her office is located within a mile of our current office, and in addition to Dr. Barbosa, her associates Drs. Philip Shin and Joseph Costa offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments.

Those of you who know Dr. Barbosa and associates already know what fantastic dentists they are. To those of you who have not yet met them, you are in great hands. They have exceptional clinical skills and wonderful chairside manners. They care deeply about their work and their patients.

As part of this merger, all of your records will be transferred to Bloomfield Avenue Dental Associates unless you advise us to do otherwise. I highly encourage you and your family to continue your dental care at Bloomfield Avenue Dental Associates.

Thank you again for your loyalty, confidence, and friendship.

Warm regards,

Edward J. McKlindon, DDS
