I would like to take this opportunity to Wish you all a Very Happy New Year and inform you of changes we are making to serve you and your family better.
For some time now, I have been searching for the right person who shares the same philosophy of dentistry and has the skills that you have all come to know, embrace and expect from my staff and me. I will continue to work in the practice while pursuing my passion for teaching, which I have grown to love over the past few years.
It is with great pleasure that I introduce my new Associate, Dr. Arindam Kakkar. Dr. Kakkar is a graduate of NYU School of Dentistry. He was a member of the OKU fraternity (Omicron Kappa Upsilon), and graduated with honors while on the Dean’s List. The doctor relocated to New Jersey after 8 successful years of practice, catering to over 5,000 satisfied patients in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Further, considering current economic conditions, we are in the process of reviewing and adjusting our fees to benefit our patients. We have also decided to accept and participate in additional major insurances. As we finalize our enrollment to the plans we will inform you of our progress.
Looking at the needs of the community, we are extending our hours of operation to include alternating Fridays and Saturdays to meet your emergency needs.
I am confident that each and every one of our patients will welcome the above changes and trust that Dr. Kakkar is going to be a wonderful addition to our practice. The staff has enjoyed working with him and I respect the impeccable credentials he possesses. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Kakkar to our practice.
