Dear Colleagues and Friends:
For 26 years it has been a privilege to be part of your dental care, first when practicing with my father, Dr. Burt Goldfarb, and then progressing to be on my own when he retired. It is now time for my next professional endeavor as I am stepping away from private practice to continue my dedication to public health and hospital dentistry as well as teaching at the dental school. Whether you are someone I have met recently, someone I have known for years throughout practicing or some even beyond that, I have enjoyed being your dentist and seeing you for each of your visits.
I have been searching for a colleague who would assume the active leadership responsibilities of my practice so that I might be able to transition into my new professional phase. The primary objective of my search was to find an individual who would carry on my practice philosophy of rendering the highest quality dentistry in a personal and caring manner.
I am thrilled to introduce you to the person who I believe is the perfect choice to continue the legacy of quality dental care at our multi generational family run practice. Dr. Samuel Ustayev, known by his patients as Dr. Sam, was born and raised in Newton, MA. He earned his DMD from Boston University and completed his general practice residency at the Brooklyn VA Hospital. After residency, Dr. Sam returned home to treat patients in private practice in the Boston area and has been searching for his ideal professional home. Through his experiences, he has developed a wide skill set in all the traditional facets of dentistry as well as advanced procedures and newer technologies. He is a young and active leader, current member of the American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, and Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and fellow of the Implant Pathways training program.
Equally as important as credentials and background, Dr. Sam brings an honest and compassionate concern for his patients. He is committed to rendering the highest quality treatment in the same caring and comfortable environment to which you have been accustomed. I have every confidence you will feel as comfortable with Dr. Sam as you have been with me and together we will continue to merit your trust and referrals of family and friends. We all know that change can be daunting at first but I assure you in this case, the change will be exciting and well received.
The success that I have had is due in great part to the talented and dedicated staff of our office, whom Dr. Sam is extremely fortunate to be able to work with. Dr. Sam shares an appreciation of the special Coolidge Corner community and your integral part of our long-standing success. Moving forward, we are excited to announce that the practice will take on the name Coolidge Corner Dental. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions and if you would like to schedule an appointment.
I look forward to you meeting Dr. Sam at your next visit. I am delighted to delegate the responsibilities of my dental practice to a professional of his caliber and integrity, and I am certain I am leaving your care in the best of hands.
Dan Goldfarb, DMD
