Dear Patients and Friends,
I am excited to announce my Providence dental practice will become part of Benefit Dental Care. We are committed to serving the Providence area communities.
We started very small and now we have grown to the point that we need a dentist with more time availability to commit to this office. I am gratified with having to make this decision due to growing family and career needs. I have an obligation to secure my patients with a dentist who can be here and deliver the best oral health care, which has led to this practice’s joining with Benefit Dental Care.
With this comes the bittersweet transition of me as your dentist to your new dentist. I am excited to introduce Dr. Hashem Shehadeh.
Dr. Shehadeh was born and raised nearby in Coventry, RI. He earned his undergraduate degree Summa Cum Laude from the University of Rhode Island. He then completed his dental training at Boston University School of Dental Medicine and earned his doctor of dental medicine degree (DMD) Magna Cum Laude.
Dr. Shehadeh furthered his education by completing a post-graduate residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, where he achieved advanced clinical skills in all facets of dentistry.
Dr. Shehadeh is energetic, well-trained, and enthusiastic about providing high quality care to each of his patients. He is an active member of community outreach programs that provide oral health care to various underserved communities in the Boston area and overseas. In his free time, he enjoys exercising, hiking, snowboarding, and all Boston sports!
I am confident I have found a wonderful dentist in Dr. Shehadeh who can give the practice the time and dedication it needs. Both him and I share similar treatment philosophies and he will also have the collective efforts of dentists from both locations working together. With the upcoming change, I will be leaving the Providence office and Dr. Shehadeh will be taking over full-time. I have enjoyed the relationships that we have developed and feel honored to have had each of you as patients. I thank you for the trust and confidence in me over the years.
Words cannot express my appreciation for the loyal staff I have been blessed to work with. They have committed to stay as a team and help Dr. Shehadeh during the transition.
I hope you will continue to support Dr. Shehadeh and the staff. I am confident that you will receive the same dedication and professionalism delivered in a high quality, friendly atmosphere.
Thank for your loyalty and patronage.
