Changes at The Haven Dental Practice

Changes at The Haven Dental Practice

To all our dear patients and friends at the Haven Dental Practice.

It is with some sadness that I write to you all to let you know that the practice will be changing hands from 1st June 2022. I have known many of you for over 30 years and I will miss my many friends at the Haven. However, the time comes for all of us to retire and move on.

I should like to thank you all for your loyalty over the years and wish everyone all the best for the future. In particular, I would like to thank my colleagues Stephanie and Afif who have worked so hard to look after the practice during my absence over the last months. I owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude. Like me, Steph is also retiring at the end of Mayas well as Diane, who has worked with me for over 30 years. I know they will both be greatly missed. Afif will continue to work part-time at the practice, and you will benefit from his care and attention to detail. Katie, our other hygienist, as well as our dental nurses Zsuzsa and Jennifer, will continue to look after you in surgery and on the desk and I thank them also for their loyalty and service to the practice.

Below is a letter from Steph to her patients:

I am writing to let you know that I am retiring from dentistry at the end of May 2022. I have really enjoyed my career and feel privileged that you chose me to provide your care and I would like to thank you for your loyalty.

My husband retired 5 years ago; we have always planned to do more travelling, so now that the world is re-opening, after the pandemic, we will take the time to do some trips further afield.I also want to spend more time in my garden and my allotment.

The Haven dental team will continue to provide your routine inspections and hygiene treatment, soI will be leaving you in their capable hands.

Kind regards,
Stephanie Brown BDS

In conclusion, I would like to introduce the colleagues who will be taking over the Haven. They are Messrs Amit Birdi and Amit Kumar and I am sure they will continue to look after you as you have come to expect at the Haven. They have written an introductory paragraph below:

Allow us to begin with a special thank you to Ann and her team for their hard work and dedication over the years. Ann has built The Haven Dental Practice into such a wonderful, caring and happy environment to serve the population of Earley and its surroundings. Our aim is to continue the care that Ann and her team have put into looking after their patients. We have a combined thirty years of experience in dentistry, ranging from General Dentistry, Dental Implants, Sedation treatment for nervous patients, Cosmetic Dentistry and are Platinum Invisalign Providers. We have a strong ethos of treating our patients in the most comfortable way possible, providing high quality dentistry in a Pain-Free* setting. We are very excited to get to know our patients, understand their needs and provide a warm and friendly environment while helping to achieve everyone’s oral health needs.

We would both like to take this opportunity in wishing Ann, Steph and Diane the very best in their retirement. We look forward to welcoming you to The Haven Dental Practice.

All my questions were answered in as much detail as I needed. I would recommend that anyone with a gap considers this option. I couldn’t be more pleased...Joan Campbell, Lower Earley arrow down
Now I feel a lot more confident and would certainly recommend the treatment – my only regret is that I didn’t have it sooner!Matt, Earley arrow down
