Message From Dr. Chris Hacker
It is with mixed emotions that I announce I am stepping away from active dental practice as of April 13, 2017. After selling my practice in 2012, I continued to practice half time while helping to run an elective course at the UBC School of Dentistry and providing policy and practice advice for the College of Dental Surgeons of BC.
Ms. Carmel Wiseman resigned her position as Director of Professional Practice and Deputy Registrar for the College earlier this year and I was honoured to be asked to consider taking her place. I came to the conclusion that it was an opportunity that I couldn’t ignore as it will provide for a dentist to hold a senior position at the College.
The opportunity, however, doesn’t come without a cost. Over the past 36 years, many of you have asked me why I chose dentistry as a career. The answer is simple, it’s about the relationships. I feel so fortunate to have been in a situation where I have been asked into your lives not only to participate in your overall dental health care but also to share your personal journeys. I can’t tell you how much I’m going to miss all of you.
Dr. Farshad Fereidouni, who purchased the practice from Dr. Kevin Aminzadeh in August of 2015, has committed to continue to provide for all of your dental needs. The staff are capable, empathetic and motivated, being amongst the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Don’t hesitate to call the office should you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your loyalty, support and friendship, I’ll never forget it.
