Farewell Mary… All The Best!

Mary Conery, one of our Registered Dental Hygienists, has decided that she is ready for retirement and will see her last patients at the end of June. She has been a dedicated member of our dental team for 21 years. We appreciate very much her devotion, ideas and the excellence she has put into making this dental practice a success. We’ve had many patients tell us, “Don’t ever let Mary retire!”  We tried….. but to no avail!  Her smile, laughter and warm, caring attitude toward patients and team members alike will certainly be missed.

As employers, Dr. Michelle and I are truly lucky and thankful to be surrounded by such a great team we have working at Crow Family Dentistry. Our employees, like Mary, have been with us for many years.  Some of us have grown up together in a way.  Myself, I’m still growing up!

We know you will miss Mary, as will we. She has been the perfect employee and is a good friend. Thank you, Mary, for your many years of service. You have made Crow Family Dentistry a better place and have served our patients well.

Please take a look at my interview of Mary. She has a message for you, our awesome patients, and gives some information about her career and her plans for retirement.

She has been announcing her retirement to patients for months now.  However, many of you may not get a chance to see her for treatment again before her last day with Crow Family Dentistry.

Please join us for an open house on June 15th from 6-8 pm at our office to say farewell to Mary. You will have a chance to meet Sue, our other dental hygienist, our new hygienist Kristen and other members of our team.

Don Crow, DDs

    I am so sad. I just started with Mary a few months ago and got attached. She’s very gentle and kind. Her voice is so soothing it could almost replace the laughing gas, LOL. It’s like everyone good I get attached to either moves away or retires. But I’ll live. It’s just hard sometimes. Happy retirement, Mary!

    I have just loved having Mary as my hygienist. I almost wish I had an appointment before she left…almost. 😉 As someone who has dental anxiety, it has been so wonderful having someone around who just calmed me with her kind voice and conversations. I will sincerely miss you Mary. You deserve a happy and adventurous retirement! Best wishes!

    Nicole and I won’t be able to make it to the open house, we will be in Mexico, but we’ll toast you with a Margarita on the day.

    We love you, and we’ll miss you.

    Mary I’m going to miss your gentleness and friendship in the chair. All the best and I’ll be seeing you on the 7th.

    Mary, I’ve already told you literally 100’s of times what I think, but in case you forgot, while I wish you the best my completely selfish side says that you should stay there until I no longer have teeth!!! After all, it is because of you and Dr. Don that I still do!! I will miss you and I will try my hardest not to be “one of ‘those’ patients”. Best wishes always.

    Dawn: What special words from a special person. Be safe in all of your travels. Best wishes to you as well. Mary

    Will miss you and your floss reminders. Probably won’t get to see you before you leave, have to reschedule. Have a fun retirement.

  10. Mary says:

    Bob: Yes, those floss reminders will keep on coming even though I won’t be the lucky one to make that statement. Be careful on your bicycle and tell your son to keep making music, as well as take care of his teeth. Mary

    Mary, I will miss you…remember when I first starting seeing you and it required gas and those numbers…yuck! Now through your guidance I no longer need the gas and my numbers…YEAH! I wish you all the best in your retirement..you deserve it. I will miss our chats about books and pets.

    Vanetta: We both know how far you have come. It is one of my greatest pleasures as a hygienist when I get to share the evolving change of one’s dental health. It has been pure joy getting to know you and sharing our stories with each other. Best of luck to you, Mary

    Mary, I was dismayed to read in the newsletter that you were retiring. I felt my oral hygiene was in good hands with you. I am glad for you, but sad for me and all the others that have appreciated your special brand of caring, humor and expertise. All the best to you and your family.

  14. Mary says:

    Dearest Mary….It’s been 21 great years and I wish you the absolute best in retirement! Happy traveling…I’ll keep track of Justin’s flossing! 😉 xooxxo
