Dr. Neil Covin

Dear Colleagues, Patients and Friends,


After 48 wonderful years of practicing periodontics, I have decided to retire.  I’ve always been passionate about dentistry, which made my job feel more like a hobby.  It has been so fulfilling helping people with their dental health.  It has been a great ride through the years and I have developed wonderful friendships with my colleagues, staff and patients.  I know these relationships will continue once I am retired. People often ask, “Neil, what will you do with all your free time?”  I am looking forward to continuing to do agility with my dogs, play a lot of tennis with my friends and family, biking and traveling with my wife, Ann.

 To my patients, Dr. Hoover, Dr. Molletti and our staff are truly the best!  Dentistry is all about relationships.  It is those relationships with you that have made these many years serving you so enjoyable. With that said, I will ease out of dentistry contently, knowing that you are left in excellent hands.

 Thank you for your friendship, confidence, and trust. I will miss you!
