On behalf of our entire staff, I want you to know how much we appreciate your friendship and support of our office. I have been experiencing health issues with my neck and back for the past two years and unfortunately, even after two neck surgeries, my condition has not improved. Therefore, after much thought and consideration, I have made the difficult decision to turn over the reins of my practice to another dentist.
After searching for my successor for the past year, I am pleased to announce that I will hand off my practice to the care of Dr. Christina Shaw as of January 9, 2015. I have the utmost confidence that I am handing off my practice to a knowledgeable and caring doctor who is committed to my philosophy of providing quality care for my patients first and foremost. I also take comfort in the fact that our wonderful staff will continue working in the practice.
Dr. Shaw grew up in Northern California, earned her Degree in Dental Medicine from Western University School of Health Sciences, graduating in the top 10% of her class. More importantly, Dr. Shaw has a passion for doing beautiful, functional dentistry and taking excellent care of her patients. She has the energy and drive to take Great Grins Dental to the next level. For these reasons, I feel that Dr. Shaw is a great fit for our office and can recommend her to you without reservation. Dr. Shaw is very excited to meet all of you, and looking forward to becoming involved in the vibrant local community.
Dr. Shaw moved to Austin earlier this year with her husband Jameson. In her free time, she enjoys all of the outdoor activities Austin has to offer, and exploring restaurants around town.
I have enjoyed getting to know you all and spending many precious moments together over the past 18 years. Some of you have been with me for years and I'm forever grateful for your trust and friendship. Please understand that this has not been an easy decision for me, but one that is necessary. Thank you for supporting me and Dr. Shaw during this transition.
