Dear Valued Patients,


Serving you for 26 years has transformed me and my profession as a dentist. For this, I feel honored to serve each of you in managing your dental health. It is time for me to pass the baton. I am privileged to pass the dental practice that I hold in my heart, Aesthetic and General Dentistry, to Dr. Peter Kelly, a qualified and knowledgeable dentist with a myriad of talents and experience.


I will still be here to offer my services in the next few months, to assist Dr. Kelly and his partners in this transition. I am also happy to inform you that our entire outstanding dental team will remain with Dr. Kelly. I have confidence that Dr. Kelly will continue the practice’s mission of providing excellent dental care.


Thank you so much for all the experience in becoming a better dentist to you. My personal journey is taking me along another pathway. I will remember you, the relationship, and the memories.


With best wishes and deep gratitude,


Alfredo M. Gapuz, Jr., DMD
