Dear Valued Patient….

I would like to thank all of you who have given me the privilege of being your dentist these post 35 years. Your confidence and trust in me has been both professionally rewarding and personally humbling. I will forever be grateful for the relationships we had with each other and everyone of you.

There have been some recent physical changes in my life. I am experiencing painful sciatica of my lower back where the only resolution is retiring from dentistry and undergoing surgery. After much deliberation, I have decided to retire and transition to the next chapter in my life effective June 30, 2021.

While I am saddened that I personally will not be providing your preventive care in the future, the dentists and staff here are dedicated to providing you with only the finest in dental care. To make the transition as smooth as possible, our newest staff member and my replacement, Dr. Benjamin Baranes, has joined My Scottsdale Dentist. Dr. Baranes has been with the office since November 2020 and some of you have already met him. I am confident he will provide you with the some personalized, excellent care that you expect and deserve.

I have so enjoyed being your dentist and hope that our paths will cross again in the near future.


My Scottsdale Dentist is excited to be your dental care provider. We look forward to serving you and your family for years to come. We’re here when you need us!
