I am writing you to announce that I have decided to retire from dentistry in California to spend more time with my family and grandchildren. When you love a career as much as I love dentistry and think of all the friendships I have made throughout the years, the decision to retire is not an easy one. I wish to thank all of my friends, neighbors and family in Torrance and surrounding cities who have entrusted their dental care to me, for themselves and their families, for these past 38 years. Serving your needs has truly been a privilege and an honor.
After making the decision to retire, my primary concern was to find a skilled and dedicated dentist with whom I would be comfortable in placing your present and future dental care. I met with Dr. Mylena Ji and she impressed me with her accomplishments thus far in the field and her compassion in patient care. I felt that she would be a good fit for the practice. Dr. Ji lives in the city of Rolling Hills Estates with her family. She graduated from USC School of Dentistry in 2009 and from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro College of Dentistry in 2002. Dr. Ji has been practicing dentistry for 13 years. Your patient records will remain in the care of Dr. Ji. My office staff will continue to work with Dr. Ji to insure a smooth transition. It is my sincerest wish that all of you will stay with the practice and continue your dental treatment here in this office. I feel confident that you will be in the best of hands.
Thank you again for your years of dedication to our practice. Dr. Ji is looking forward to earning the same level of trust and appreciation you have shown me over these past many years.
