Dear Patient, After practicing dentistry here in New Orleans for 15 years, I have decided to relocate to Arkansas to be closer to family. It has been my singular honor to be your dentist. I have treated you and your family as I would my own. Each of you has become a valued friend. After a long and careful search, I have found the right dentist to take over my practice. She is Dr. Lauren Rivet, a caring, talented and compassionate professional, who shares my commitment to exemplary dentistry. From Dr. Rivet, I am confident that you will continue to receive the highest quality of care. Dr. Rivet is a graduate of Tulane University and Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. Dr. Rivet, her husband, Ryan, and their three children, Ella, Finn, and Greyson, have been residents of Lakeview since 2005. I know you will be pleased with Dr. Rivet and will extend to her the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded me over these many years. Dr. Rivet and I have worked closely together to ensure a smooth transition in response to your specific needs. We gladly will answer any of your questions about the transition in the weeks ahead. Finally, your many kindnesses have always been appreciated. I will miss you.
