As some of you may know, I am unable to return to my dental practice due to a sudden diagnosis of terminal cancer. I have cared for many of you for decades, and, while saying goodbye is difficult, I am so grateful to be leaving your dental health in the very capable hands of Dr. Pavinee Chotiwannaporn.
Dr. Pavinee (as she is called by her patients and friends) has been with Seattle Specialty Dentistry for more than a year. I think so highly of her clinical skills and chairside manner that in September, only one week before my diagnosis, I offered her a full partnership. At that time, I thought we would form a fantastic team to provide the best care for you.
Dr. Pavinee has outstanding professional training and credentials. She practiced general dentistry in Thailand before pursuing advanced education in the United States. Here in the US, she simultaneously earned certificates in both Graduate Operative Dentistry and Prosthodontics while earning her MSc in Prosthodontics at Indiana University School of Dentistry. Thereafter, she completed a fellowship in Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. She has also earned certificates in Moderate IV Sedation from both LSU Health Sciences Center and Oregon Academy of General Dentistry. Her extensive and diverse education demonstrates not only a commitment to learning and achievement, but also a sincere dedication to providing the very best care for her patients.
Equally important to her academic achievement and clinical skills is her warm and caring nature. I am so very comforted knowing that she will be here to care for you and your dental health. You will truly be in excellent hands.
I want to close by thanking all of you for the trust you have placed in me over the years. I have truly loved being your dentist.
