To our valued patients,
I am writing to let you know of some team member changes at San Ramon Dental Excellence.
I would first like to take the opportunity to thank Both Drs. Duncan and Nishioka for their years of service providing exceptional care to our patients. Dr. Duncan will be moving on to focus full time on she and her husband’s practice while Dr. Nishioka is contemplating a move back to her native Hawaii. We wish them both the best of fortune as we say a bittersweet goodbye!
I am very excited to introduce our latest team member, Dr. Divian Patel. After practicing dentistry for 27 years, I certainly don’t take such decisions lightly. It has been my singular honor to be your dentist and to help with your oral health needs. In some cases, I have treated three generations of your family. Each of you has become a valued friend.
After a long and careful search, I feel that I have found the right dentist to become a partner at your practice.
Dr. Divian Patel is a caring, talented and compassionate professional, who shares my commitment to exemplary dentistry. I am confident that you will continue to receive the highest quality of care.
Dr. Patel is also a graduate of the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. He also earned a previous dental degree in the London, England (2010) where he led two successful practices. He was involved in several community projects, mentoring junior doctors and heavily invested time in self-development and advanced education. He shares a passion for improving oral health and has experience in all aspects of preventive and restorative dentistry. His potential was noticed early on when recognized as a finalist for the prestigious award, Best Young Dentist in the UK 2012. More recently he has been inducted into Tau Kappa Omega Dental Honor Society (induction on the basis of ideals, scholarship and character).
I know you will be pleased with Dr. Patel and will extend the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded me over many years.
We will both work closely together to elevate the practice and the health of our patients to the highest levels.
He is available to call you for a brief introduction at your request. Feel free to reach out and meet him even if is simply to talk about soccer or cricket, his two favorite sports.
Many thanks for all your continued support as we move towards an exciting future for San Ramon Dental Excellence.
Dr. Foroud Hakim
