Letters: Valued team

Thank you for the article in the Dec. 12 ADA News on Rosalyn Kleiman ("After 43 Years, a Heartfelt Goodbye"). Such unusual dedication deserves recognition and remembrance.

I wish to bring to attention another equally dedicated servant of the dental profession. She is Norma Bedrosian, my faithful and capable dental assistant and secretary for over 32 years. Even before, she was employed by another Worcester dentist, Everett Graham, for 26 years, making a total of 58 years. What is more amazing is that she still works with me in my one-chair office and I am 89 years old.

I should point out that she is multitalented. She works at the front desk, at the chair side and helps me with writing.

Would it be appropriate that an addendum to your article be written including other assistants who serve beyond the call of duty?
