|Dear patients and friends, |
I love being a dentist, and for 33 years I have tremendously enjoyed providing dental care for you as well as the relationships we’ve formed. After a great deal of soul searching and prayer, though, I have decided to retire from the private practice of dentistry so that I can spend more time with my family.
I have interviewed several quality dentists, and I am delighted that I found an outstanding dentist that I feel comfortable continuing your care based on her credentials, diagnostic philosophy, advanced skill, and compassion of service. With sincere confidence, I am happy to introduce Dr. Martha Catalina Payne.
Dr. Payne is a 2010 graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dentistry. She is passionate about helping patients improve their oral health and achieve a beautiful smile. With 11 years of experience practicing dentistry in the Bay Area, Dr. Payne shares a philosophy of building personal relationships with patients and working with each patient to meet the individual’s distinctive oral health goals. She brings poise, enthusiasm, and a kind, gentle nature to the practice. She has completed rigorous and extensive advanced dental education at the prestigious Interdisciplinary Dental Education Academy in Foster City, CA, and attends continuing education courses on a regular basis to stay updated on improvements in dental technology, practice, and in all aspects of dental procedures. Dr. Payne also donates a considerable number of hours to local schools and community programs supporting oral health for both kids and adults. Dr. Payne prides herself in making every patient feel comfortable with a laid-back patient-centered approach to dentistry and patient comfort. Dr. Payne enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two teenage children, sports, reading, gardening, and being active in the community. She is also a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Santa Clara Dental Society. I am confident you will find Dr. Payne’s personality and style complements our friendly and warm dental team.
I will work closely with Dr. Payne so that she will become familiar with all aspects of the practice and have a thorough understanding of each patient’s dental needs. Of course, if I have begun treatment with any of you that requires another appointment to complete, I will be completing that care for you within the next few weeks. I am confident that you will enjoy Dr. Payne as much as I have enjoyed getting to know her. The team is also quite impressed with Dr. Payne, and you will continue to see them at your reserved dental care visits.
It has truly been an honor to serve you, and I thank you for your many years of loyalty, friendships, and laughs. I am grateful for the confidence you have placed in me, and I am sure that you will feel just as comfortable with Dr. Payne as she continues to provide you and your family excellent dental care for years to come!
Very truly yours,
Dr. Guy Peabody DDS
