Dr. Amanda Ankrom!
It is that time of life folks! Jeanette’s and my body will not allow us to continue providing you, much longer, with the quality of dental care that you have become accustomed to. So instead of “hanging on” until we start compromising your dental treatment, we knew we needed to start planning for the future of the practice and your care. We have carefully evaluated a number of candidates who were interested in assuming our practice. We have worked with and selected Dr. Amanda Ankrom, a caring, gentle and excellent dentist.
Dr. Ankrom grew up in Sonora and graduated from Sonora High School. She is a family friend and we are confident that you will like her as much as we do. We actually wrote her a letter of recommendation for dental school all those years ago. We are confident Dr. Ankrom will provide you with excellent dental care. She will also become our dentist! She and her husband, Reid Hallett, made the decision to return to Sonora specifically to join this practice, as she believes it is as special as we do. Dr. Ankrom received her DDS degree from UCLA. After dental school, she chose to further her education by pursuing advanced training in a residency program. Dr. Ankrom completed a General Practice Residency (GPR) at the West Los Angeles VA Hospital. Thus, she is highly qualified to provide you with exceptional dental care in a very gentle and painless manner.
Dr. Ankrom will be expanding the number of days during which appointments may be made, making it easier to schedule appointments. The office location and telephone numbers will remain the same. We are also happy to let you know that everyone else on the team will stay on with Dr. Ankrom. Ann and Mariah will continue to provide you with excellent hygiene care. Jane will still assist you with her contagious laugh. Leanna will still greet you with her friendly and positive attitude. Kaitlin has been working on her EMT certification, so she may be moving on to bigger things. We will miss her.
It has been an honor and privilege to have served you over the past 35 years. We will miss seeing all of you on a regular basis. We are not moving, so hopefully our paths will cross in Sonora from time to time. Thank you all for your support throughout these years.
We have worked closely with Dr. Ankrom to ensure a smooth transition in response to your specific needs. We know you will be pleased with Dr. Ankrom and will extend to her the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded us. Have faith and trust in Dr. Ankrom as she is a gifted dentist who truly puts her heart, soul, and technical excellence into her work.
Rick and Jeanette
