Dear patients and friends,
I hope your summer has gone well and you are ready for another season of cold, snow and our envious sunshine in Colorado. In addition to my dental practice here I have remained the dental consultant for the US Antarctic program since due to budget cuts they have not had a dentist on the research stations since I left there 20 months ago. Recently they offered me a 6 week contract to go down and take care of the dental needs of the researchers and staff at McMurdo and the South Pole, so I am heading south in early January, 2015. My wife Patty likes to joke that most people in Colorado look for a warm climate in January but I am heading to Antarctica. I will join her when I finish and we plan to spend some time on a warm beach before I return to work on March 9, 2015.
While I am away, I will forward my phone and refer my practice to Dr. Jack Matthews, who I have known for the past 30 years and shared an office with since 2003. My phone number of 719 593-9388 will remain the same, and I encourage you to call and take care of any dental needs that arise while I am away. Dr. Matthews office hours are from 7:30 AM until 4:30 PM Monday through Thursday, and the dental hygienists and assistants that work in his practice have made it a great place to work. I plan to return to the same office with my wonderful dental assistant, Regine when I finish my work in Antarctica.
I would enjoy hearing from you at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and plan to post some stories on this web site. Thanks as always for your understanding and loyalty, and I look forward to seeing many of you before I leave in January, or after I return next March to Colorado Springs.
Cheers, Dr. Koff
