A Message From Dr. Schechter

To all our valued patients and friends,

I am writing this letter to inform you that as of February 1, 2023, I will be retiring from the practice of dentistry. I have truly enjoyed my relationships with my patients and staff, and have gotten endless satisfaction and joy from caring for you and your families over the years. It has been an honor to have served you for the past 20+ years. My wife, Eti, has been the dental hygienist for some of you and will miss her conversations with her patients. I look forward to retirement, spending more time with my family and traveling. I look back with fondness and pride, to my years here with you, and all that we have accomplished together. Thank you for your kindness, your loyalty, and your trust.

Finding an outstanding professional to assume my position in this dental family we have created has been an important, comprehensive and extensive process.

After diligently searching, I am happy to announce that Dr. Craig Goliber will be stepping into my position and will be caring for your dental needs moving forward. Dr. Goliber has exceptional clinical skill and a wonderful chairside manner. He cares deeply about his work and his patients. Dr. Goliber was born and raised in Essex, Vermont. He graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2015. Dr Goliber is very excited to move back to Vermont with his wife, Brenda, a registered nurse, and their young son, Owen.

The same friendly and caring staff will continue to serve you. I know Dr. Goliber will appreciate, as I have, all the little things they do to make you more comfortable. Dr. Goliber will continue to be associated with everyone’s insurance companies as provided by us in the past.

I am committed to ensuring a smooth transition and will be working directly with Dr. Goliber and our staff to make that happen.

I want to thank each of you for the opportunity to be your dentist and for your past and present support. It means more to me than I could ever express. Please know that you have my best wishes for the future.
