As many of you already know, Dr. Michael Simmons retired on December 31, 2017. We were blessed to have such a caring clinician so keenly focused on offering quality orthodontics for a reasonable and affordable fee. Please take the time to read the kind words Dr. Simmons has written to you and your family.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued trust and confidence in permitting me to care for you and your dental needs throughout the years. It is with sincere gratitude and appreciation that I am announcing the sale of my practice.

“In an effort to ensure that my patients continue to receive the best possible care, I have worked with and selected Dr. Michael Woods, a caring and talented dentist, who possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well-skilled in all phases of orthodontics. Dr. Woods has been working as an associate in the office since the summer of 2017 and has done an excellent job, making this transition very smooth. Over these months, he has gotten to know, treated, and impressed many patients.

“I know you will be pleased with Dr. Woods and I hope you will extend to him the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded me. Dr. Woods and I have worked closely together to ensure a smooth transition in response to your specific needs.”

For Dr. Simmons, patients were more than just patients — they were extended family. He considered each and every one of you a friend whom he genuinely looked forward to seeing each day. We will miss his presence around the office, but we are excited for him in this new chapter of his life.

If you haven’t met Dr. Woods, feel free to give him a warm welcome next time you’re in the office!

We are happy to have him on board as the new leader of our crew.
