“Dear Patients,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your dental needs through the years. it is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from the practice of dentistry. Because I want to be certain that my patients continue to receive the best possible care, I have carefully evaluated a number of candidates who were interested in assuming my practice. I am delighted to have selected Drs. Jiyon and Sang Kim, a husband-wife dental team, whom I believe possess excellent qualifications and are well-skilled in all phases of dentistry. Drs Jiyon and Sang Kim have a successful dental practice in Renton and have practiced there since 2003. Both are graduates of Indiana University School of Dentistry ; Sang in 2002 and Jiyon in 2003. They are committed to excellence in their practice of dentistry and strive to provide a kind and caring environment where your individual dental needs can be comfortably met. They are motivated to stay abreast of the new and ever changing technologies within dentistry.

They have been married for 17 years and enjoy working together. I have had the opportunity to meet their daughter Chloe who is an engaging 5 year old and keeps them busy with her many activities. They have a passion for travel and have shared that enthusiasm with Chloe.

I feel confident that Sang and Jiyon will continue to provide you and your family with the best dental care possible. I am happy to say that Ali will be assisting them in the transition and will be able to help you schedule your future dental visits and current dental needs. Thank you again for your loyalty and confidence. I will miss you all.

My very best wishes,
