Retirement Letter From Dr. Dumouchel
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the patients that put their trust and confidence in me to take care of their dental needs. It is with mixed emotions that after practicing dentistry for 45 years, I am announcing my retirement at the end of September. I have enjoyed working with Dr Gery Benza for the last 17 ½ years and getting to know all the patients and their families. I feel confident that there will be a seamless transition of patients to Dr. Gery Benza or Dr. Anthony Benza and they will provide you with the highest quality of care.
After moving to Naples from Rutland, VT in 1989, I will be retiring here in beautiful Naples. I look forward to spending more time with my wife Jean, our family and our golden retriever, Lizzie.
Thank you again for your trust and confidence, I will miss all of you.
