To all our valued patients and friends,
I am writing this letter to let you know that as of August 30th, I will retire from the practice of dentistry. The decision to retire was a difficult one for me because I love being a dentist. I have truly enjoyed my relationships with my patients and staff and have gotten endless satisfaction and joy from caring for you and your families over the years. I have had a great career. It has been an honor to have served you for the past 40+ years. I look forward with excitement to retirement and spending more time with my family. I look back with fondness and pride to my years here with you and all that we have accomplished together. Thank you for your kindness, your loyalty, and your trust.
I am happy to announce that Dr. Oscar Dominguez and Dr. Robert Lobo will be caring for your dental needs in the future. Most of you already know Dr. Dominguez. He has been a fellow associate for close to a year now. Those of you who know Dr. Dominguez already know what a fantastic dentist he is. To those of you who have not met him yet, you are in great hands. I recently started working with Dr. Lobo and I feel he shares the same commitment to caring, conservative dentistry I have always practiced.
The same friendly and caring staff, Chrystal, KC, Ingrid, and Neydi will continue to serve you and as always, you will be contacted for your periodic exams. I know Drs. D and Lobo will appreciate, as I have, all the little things they do to make you more comfortable.
I want to thank each of you for the opportunity to be your dentist and your friend and your past and present support through this transition. It means more to me than I could ever express. Please know you have my best wishes for the future.
Dr. Robert Copeland

LOVES FROM OUR PATIENTS
Testimonies from our beloved patients are very much appreciated. Here are some of their feedback to our dental services!

I seldom have long to wait before Sally, the hygienist, gets me set up and begins cleaning my teeth. I admittedly don’t brush/floss as often as I should. So she always has to use scrapers, etc to remove the hardened crud (I can’t believe how hard plaque can get). I’m sure my tea-drinking does not help the color either.And a few years ago I had several cavities (had not been to a dentist in over 10 years because I had been cavity-free since birth for many decades). After a massive cleaning in several visits, Dr. Copeland filled those cavities with only slight discomfort. And now he and Sally see me twice a year to keep it that way.Definitely would recommend,this practice. Particularly since my MetLife coverage pays for the cleanings and regular X-rays2/23/2018

Most reasonable costs of any dentist in this area. He likes to talk but does very good work. Very reliable, and not out to make a buck on you.3/02/2018

Wow! I'm shocked there's not enough reviews with this dds, Copeland. First, his staff is genuinely wonderful. They're so helpful and sweet. And not to mention knowledgeable. They do care for their patients.With that said, Copeland is the same way! He will work with you about payments and will let you know if there's a problem with your teeth. If you have concerns or questions, he's always there to answer and assist.Copeland is pretty popular in the neighborhood so make sure to arrange your appointments carefully. He's a bit chatty but hey I don't care, as long he takes care of my teeth well. It's worth the drive for me!3/19/2014

I came here a long time ago without insurance and they were able to work with me. I now have Metlife and can come here. I agree he is personable and honest. I love his admin staff. I had two cavities and usually don't deal with drills very well. Amazingly he was patient, efficient and quick. You can tell he's been doing this for a long time and is an expert. He may not have all the newest gadgets and dentistry equipment but he is a GREAT dentist and I will continue to see him!Also, my grandfather sees him and he has been so understanding and helpful. When my grandfather had a dental emergency (tooth came out), Mr. Copeland saw him and advised him on the person he could see because he can't do that kind of surgical procedure. Also, when my grandfather was feeling ill, he called to ask Mr.Copeland if he should come even though his heart rate was high. Mr.Copeland suggested he go to the Dr. and they could easily reschedule. That is a caring Dentist.7/27/2011

I've been going to Copeland for a few years. He's personable, professional, and I'd recommend him to anyone. It's a small office, just him and a pleasant admin, where they remember you and treat you like a person. Scheduling is a breeze and I've used a couple different insurers there.3/05/2011

Dr. Copeland is a great dentist. It was easy for me to make a first time appointment and he is fast too (no waiting!). He has been a dentist for decades, and prefers to do the full cleaning and dental exam himself. He is very personable and I could easily talk with him. While his office is not the most up-to-date, it is pleasant, and since he has been a dentist for so long, so I think he can have it his own way. I have used both Blue Cross and Aetna insurance at his office, but I'm sure he takes others too.2/17/2011
