The Dental Center, LLC. Welcome Letter

Dear Dr. Kennedy’s patients and friends,

As you read Dr Kennedy’s letter we are sure that you have mixed feelings about his retirement. We know that you have forged a wonderful and trusting relationship with Dr. Kennedy and that while you will miss him greatly, you also join us in wishing him and Pam well as they embark on a wonderful new phase of their life.

One of the most important decisions a retiring Dentist makes is to whom he will entrust the current and future care of his patients. A caring individual, such as Dr. Kennedy, would find it difficult to step away if he did not know that his patients were left in good hands. We are honored that he has selected us as his successor in overseeing the dental care of you, his valued patients, and we feel this should be a very smooth transition.  As colleagues practicing in the same town, engaging in similar continuing education courses and often covering emergencies for each other, it is clear that our practices share a philosophy centered on delivering outstanding patient care.

We understand any concerns you may have about continuing your dental care with new dentists. Therefore, our goal is to provide outstanding and compassionate dental care in the same location and with the staff that you have come to know and trust. We are truly impressed with the quality of Dr. Kennedy’s staff and will rely heavily on them as we familiarize ourselves with your dental history and expectations. We would like to briefly introduce ourselves:

Dr. David Bell and Dr. Barbara Honor are partners in the Dental Center LLC. We are both active mentors of UCONN dental students, regularly attend continuing education courses and were recently honored as “Top Dentists” by Connecticut Magazine. We currently have offices in Bloomfield and Newington.   As you may know, Dr. Brian Bell has been working with Dr. Kennedy since July and is a new associate in our practice.  Brian graduated at the top of his class at UCONN and recently completed advanced training at Hartford Hospital where he received an award honoring him as an outstanding resident.

In addition to our current offices, Dr. Honor and Dr. Brian Bell will be practicing at Dr. Kennedy’s office.  We believe that our multiple locations will give all of our patients greater scheduling flexibility and prompt emergency care.  We look forward to meeting you in the months ahead and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
