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.
Donna Winchester, D.D.S.
