Transition Notice

Dear Valued Patient,

It is with mixed emotions that I am writing this letter to announce the sale of my practice. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued trust and confidence in permitting me to care for you and your orthodontic needs through the years. You and your families have helped me to grow professionally and create a thriving practice that delivers personalized, excellent care. Many of you were more than patients, but friends who I looked forward to seeing at each and every visit. However, it is time for me to focus on pursuing some of the goals my family and I have set for ourselves, along with new professional and personal opportunities as well.

In an effort to ensure that my patients continue to receive the best possible care, I have carefully evaluated a number of candidates who were interested in assuming my practice. I have worked with and selected Dr. Nick Kim, a caring and talented orthodontist who possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well skilled in all aspects of orthodontics. Dr. Kim has been working as an associate orthodontist in the greater Atlanta area and has been treating over 2000 patients.

Dr. Kim is a graduate of University of Alabama at Birmingham and UAB School of Dentistry. He obtained his orthodontic certificate and Master of Dental Science from University of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Kim will be expanding the number of days and hours during which appointments may be made, making it easier to schedule appointments. The office location and telephone numbers will remain the same. I will be working with him over the next six to eight weeks to ensure all of my current patients transition their treatment plans successfully. Dr. Kim and I will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition in response to your specific needs.

I know you will be pleased with Dr. Kim and will extend to him the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded me. Again, I want to thank all of you for your support over the years. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Kim to Suwanee as he is a gifted and compassionate orthodontist who truly puts his heart, soul and technical excellence into his work.

Dr. Oral Francis
