To my wonderful dental patients:

I have been blessed and fortunate to have you as my patients, in most cases for decades. You feel like my family! As many of you know, in 2009 I began treating sleep apnea as well as providing dentistry, with my mother as my first sleep apnea patient. Since then, our focus on sleep apnea has grown to the point that we no longer have the availability required for general dental services. We are transitioning to full time sleep apnea service.

If we are currently treating you for sleep apnea, we are delighted to continue to do so. We will continue to welcome anyone concerning sleep-related issues, including but not limited to snoring, interrupted sleep, tiredness, daytime sleepiness, and related problems. We still provide hygiene care to patients who wish to have that service. However, we will not be able to provide dental treatment if it is required.

We are ready to assist you in finding a dentist who will continue your dental care. Of course, oftentimes, your friends’ and relatives’ recommendations will lead to a dental office that suits you well.  As another option, you could consider contacting The Greater Houston Dental Society for an American Dental Association dentist:

In addition, the dentists below, whose offices near mine, will be happy to see you:

  1. Dr. David Silberman
  1. Drs. Paul Setzler and Arda Paylan
  1. Drs. Tommy Harrison and Garrett Bethke

With your permission, we will send copies of the pertinent information from your record to a dentist you choose. Just let us know where you’d like your records to be sent. You can contact us during our office hours at 713-796-9600 to let us know the office who will receive your records. We strongly recommend you make this a priority, even if you do not need care in the near future, as this will ensure you have a reliable practice to visit during a dental emergency.

Again, dear dental patients, THANK YOU for all your friendships and patronage over the years. To those of you I will no longer have the privilege and honor of providing dental treatment, please know I will miss you dearly.
