Dear Friend,

For the past 29 years I have been privileged to practice Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

in Dublin, Ohio. Caring for patients like you, has been a lifelong dream that I have been

fortunate enough to fulfill. It is with mixed emotions that I have decided to close Hinkle

Dental Arts on September 30, 2019.

Thankfully, I remain in good health. This decision is largely the result of ownership

changes in the building I have occupied since 1990. Building out a new office is simply not

practical, and I honestly cannot recreate the office I have called home for so many years; it

has its own heart and soul. Your referring dentist is aware of this change and my fellow oral

surgery colleagues have pledged their support to assist in your future care.

While I will not miss the rigors of daily practice, I will deeply miss my superb staff and

patients like you. Your kindness, confidence and support touch my heart and make me

eternally grateful that I have been able to help so many great patients through the years. I

am one of the few people that honestly loved going to work because I loved what I did. This

has been a memorable journey and I look forward to the next chapter.

Likely, most difficult will be saying goodbye to my staff. These delightful women are

truly members of my family. They watch over me and patients like yourself daily. I simply

could not have prospered without their loyalty, support and genuine concern for me through

the years. I must recognize my Administrative Staff: Judy Ottney, Janelle Rees, Joyce

Luchsinger, Beth Wise, and my Surgical Staff: Jodee Kuchler, Nikki Chester and Jeni Monnin.

Please keep these ladies in your thoughts and prayers as they too transition to a new phase

in their lives.

As I embrace these changes my heart is filled with joy not for what I have gotten but

for the opportunity to care for so many wonderful patients.

Your Friend,

Dr. Bob Hinkle, DDS
