San Diego practice limited to treating Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) and Orofacial Pain.
RETIREMENT IS ON THE HORIZON
July 5th 2020. Summer’s here, the coronavirus is still with us, though hopefully on the run, and most practices are not only back but thriving. After a couple of months of shut down, my practice also reopened, on May 18th in my case. Certainly we could easily have come back fully booked and busy almost immediately. My wife and I have reached the decision however, that it is time to taper down and sometime in the next few months to close. It’s with a great deal of gratitude that I am announcing that retirement is around the proverbial corner. The practice is still open, though on a limited basis, and I am seeing current and established patients only. I am not accepting new patients.

Christmas in Cusco: My wife, Andrea, and I flew to Lima, Peru on Christmas Eve and then on to Cusco on our way to hike the Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu. On the flight to Lima I leafed through LAN’s inflight magazine and saw plenty of ads catering to the dental tourist. Can they beat
