A Letter To Our Patients

To my Valued Patients,

 

It is with a mixture of anticipation and sadness that I announce my retirement as of December 15, 2020.  

I have been honored to be a part of your dental care. I have enjoyed the relationships we have developed and this decision to retire is bittersweet.  I have been in dentistry since I was 16 years old, working with my dad as a dental assistant, then a dental hygienist. I have been a dentist since 1978, 42 years.  I am now almost 71 years old and I just feel it’s time to retire while my health is good and Kenneth and I can enjoy time off. 

I am happy to announce that Dr. Mary Glasheen will continue the dental practice.  Dr. Glasheen has been working with us for the last several months and has shown to be a great asset to our practice and our town.  Dr. Glasheen grew up in a small town near Houston, Texas.  She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M and The University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston.  She completed a General Practice Residency at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Hampton, Virginia.  She worked in private practice in San Diego, California, where her husband served in the Marines as a lawyer in JAG for the last 3 years. They moved to Lubbock in July of 2020 from San Diego.  Dr. Glasheen has a heart for the Texas small town and has brought a breath of fresh air to our practice.  I leave the dental practice in great hands. 

A large part of my enjoyment in the practice of dentistry has been the relationship I have with my patients.  Of course I grew up with many of you and I have gotten to know many more and have been blessed to hear about your life experiences. I will truly miss this relationship. 

If I can help you before I retire, please do not hesitate to let me know.

 

Sincerely, 

Donna Winchester, D.D.S.
