Dear Patients and Colleagues: .

It has been my great honor and pleasure to work with each of you for the last 25 years! Your health, wellbeing, and success have been the goals of our practice. Fred Rogers once famously said, “Often, when you think you are at the end of something, you are at the beginning of something else". It is time to pass the torch to a new generation. It is my great pleasure to announce a new beginning for myself and Dr. Mike Tesmer. Many of you met Dr. Tesmer when he was an associate here eight years ago. Dr. Tesmer received his dental degree and completed his periodontal residency at the University of Florida. He became a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology ("board certified") when he was here as an associate.

"Timing is everything", and although I am not ready to retire, I am ready to take a step back and work part-time. At the same time, Dr. Tesmer is ready to step up and take the torch. He has made plans to further advance our practice with our ongoing commitment to state of the art technology.

For years, there has been a note over my desk saying, "SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO LIFT YOU UP". I have surrounded myself with a GREAT TEAM, who all lift me up and make coming to work fun. They are all staying and are even more excited that Dr. Tesmer is back! I know you will also be excited and well-cared for by Dr. Tesmer. I feel certain you will have as much trust in him as I have. Dr. Tesmer and I look forward to serving your needs for many years to come. I know you will give him the same opportunity to meet your needs as you have given me!

Best regards,

Gregory G. Langston, D.M.D., M.S.D.
