Partners in Exceptional Care

Dr. Stephen Smith
announces retirement and welcomes
Dr. Fabrice Gallez to Morgan Hill
Dr. Matthew Wetzel to Carmel

Dear Patients, Colleagues and Friends,

After much thoughtful consideration I have decided to retire from private practice. I enjoyed being a periodontist and will miss the camaraderie of my colleagues, the fulfillment of serving our family of patients and the friendships I have developed over 25 years of practicing.

Fortunately after an extensive search, our team and I met and welcomed Dr. Fabrice Gallez to the Morgan Hill practice and Dr. Matthew Wetzel to the Carmel practice. Both doctors are Board Certified Periodontists which means they made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of periodontics, including demonstrating a comprehensive mastery of all phases of periodontal disease and treatment and in the placement of dental implants. Dr. Fabrice Gallez (Morgan Hill) and Dr. Matthew Wetzel (Carmel) will continue to carry forward a beacon of care, compassion, and expertise.

Thank you for trust and allowing me and my team to be your partner in care. It has been a great pleasure meeting you and a privilege caring for you. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and loyalty. I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.

With much gratitude,

Stephen Smith, D.D.S.
