CROCKETT – After almost 49 years practicing dentistry in Crockett I find it necessary to retire. I have had a wonderful time knowing, and interacting with all of the patients that allowed me the privilege of taking care of their dental needs. Their expression of confidence in me and my staff has been an irreplaceable gift. My decision in October of 1968 to come to Crockett led to a long and fulfilling relationship with the people I have gotten to know. I had hoped that I could get back to practicing this month, but having a number of out of town appointments on a regular schedule has prevented that.┬áMy sincere thanks to all of you.
