Dear Patient and Friend,
As a health care professional and fellow patient, I understand that dental care is a very personal issue. Each of you selected Dr. Bown as your family dentist for reasons that are important to you. I want you to know that like Dr. Bown, I am committed to high quality dental care with a personal touch. I hope in time to earn the same degree of trust you placed in Dr. Bown.
When the opportunity came for me to be the successor in Dr. Bown’s practice, I was honored. I know the Bown family has made it a mission to find the right dentist to take over the care of his patients. It is a distinct privilege to be selected from the many candidates. As a colleague of Dr. Bown, I have served West Michigan over the last 12 years, and I know Dr. Bown is held in high regard in our dental community. He is a great dentist and human being and has served the White Lake area well for over 30 years. I hope you will give me the opportunity to serve you in the same way.
I would like to tell you a little about myself. My wife, Kristi, and I have 3 active boys; Mason, Brady and Logan. We have lived in West Michigan for over 12 years since I graduated from The University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2005. We have too many chickens, 5 ducks, a Miniature Golden doodle named Bella, and two free cats if anybody wants them. (I’m just kidding.) When we are not on the baseball or soccer fields with our boys you can find me outdoors running the trails, hunting or fishing.
I grew up as a preacher’s kid in a small town similar to the Whitehall and Montague areas and I was surrounded by a life of leadership, dedication and service. These values were instilled in me from a young age and have been the backbone of how I practice dentistry. In my practice, I stress comfort in dental treatment and will work hard to make each of you feel welcome and comfortable in my care. I want to earn trust from you and your entire family.
I know from experience that change can be both exciting and challenging. Dr. Bown and I, along with the staff, have worked hard to see that this transition goes smoothly. The staff is remaining so the same friendly faces will greet you and serve your dental needs along with me. We are working to assure that you will find this change a pleasant one.
I look forward to meeting you soon and if you have any questions I encourage you to call or set an appointment. Please know I am excited about the opportunity to serve the White Lake area and I commit to providing you and your family with quality, comfortable dental care.
