As of August 5th 2021, Arbor View Dental will be permanently closed. I was fortunate to have Dr. Noor A Khaki, DMD acquire my patient base and active dental charts. Dr Khaki is a biological/holistic dentist located close by and is a colleague I trust to take care of you. Should an emergency arise before you have established care, please call her office 503-774-3033.
To my Dear patients,
I have proudly served you all for 41 years. I am sorry to say that after much consideration, I have made the decision to retire. There have been major health issues I have overcome, this last one has made it clear retirement is in the best interest for my patients, my family, and myself.
Last Saturday, July 10th some of you may have received an email announcing my retirement. This letter is for clarification.
After August 1st Dr. Khaki's office will maintain your charts. If you would like to receive your care with Dr Khaki, you can make an appointment by calling 503-774-3033 or visit her website at www.thedentalmvmt.com
If you would like to have your records transferred elsewhere, please complete the Release of Records form provided, and return via email or fax. Incomplete requests will either delay your records or prevent them from being sent. We ask kindly that you be patient when requesting your records. Requests will be processed in the order that they are received. Emily and Jennette are helping with the transition of records so you will have some familiar faces to rely upon.
I highly recommend considering Dr. Noor A. Khaki as your holistic dental care provider. Her bio speaks for itself and I have included it with this letter. I encourage you do your research and find the best fit for your needs. To help with your search begin looking at online reviews, google/ yelp / health grades, dentist websites, and using the following links:
As I am excited and very much looking forward to this new chapter of my life being able to spend more time with my family, I will greatly miss each of you, it has been a great pleasure providing for your dental care needs over the years. I value our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years.
Best wishes for your future health,
Douglas Kuoha Matz, DMD MAGD
