I’m excited you’re here, and you’ve probably noticed some changes! I want to help make this change as easy for you as possible. Long story short – Dr. Masterson had a back surgery and will no longer be practicing general dentistry. He will limit his focus to helping patients that need sleep apnea treatment. I’m excited he will still be around the office, and very excited to get started meeting all the patients he has told me so much about. Although not as Irish as Dr. Masterson, I hope you’ll find me to be a good fit for your care. His letter should have reached you by mail, but if it didn’t, please see below.
Dr. Sean Kennelly
Letter from Timothy P Masterson DDS:
It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to inform you that I will be retiring from my family dental practice. I will continue to work in the office for sleep apnea patients but will no longer be available to provide your general dental care. It has not been an easy decision to make but necessary after my back surgery.
I have always enjoyed dentistry and I know I will truly miss you, the wonderful people who have been my loyal patients and friends, as well as my wonderful staff who have made going to work each day a joy.
Over the past few years, I have been looking for a partner to eventually take over. Timing is something we can never choose, but, a prospective dentist came to my attention, from Irish Heaven (I will get to that later)! I knew immediately this person was someone that I could pass the torch to and who would care for you as I have. He is a great dentist – smart and Irish!
Dr. Sean Patrick Kennelly (our favorite name for 40 years, our son is Sean Patrick), was born in Rochester, New York. He says the Kennellys have been in New York for four generations before him! He graduated from University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2012. Sean completed a one year residency, focused in specialized dentistry, at the Veterans Hospital in Buffalo. He moved to the Denver area four years ago with his wife Dr. Kim Kennelly, a practicing dentist in Littleton. They came for the good life of Colorado, hiking, and skiing. They have two small children, a boy (3 years old) and a girl, (18 months old)!
I have informed him that I have the best patients in the world! My very competent and friendly staff will be staying to assist Dr. Kennelly in continuing to provide your dental care. I think you will find Dr. Sean Kennelly very congenial, conscientious and sincerely caring, which makes me feel that you will be comfortable in continuing your dental care with him. He also is a good story teller! I will be around to help with the transition. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
I am sincerely grateful to you for allowing me to be your dentist. The degree of success I have had has been the result of my relationship with you. I will miss you!
My sincere best wishes to all of you,
Timothy P Masterson DDS”
