 Message from Dr. Schauwecker:

Dear patients and friends,
After practicing dentistry in Tempe for the last 36 years and establishing my own practice the last 34 years, I have decided to step aside and let another doctor have the opportunity I had,
34 years ago.

Dentistry has been an exceptional occupation for me, but only because of the staff and patients that walked into my office every day. I wish I could express the gratitude adequately that my family has for all of you, but that word escapes me. Maybe it is just many thanks with lots of exclamation points, I just don’t know…

We are all fortunate that Dr. Feras Ziadat approached me about continuing the care that all of you have come to expect. He is someone I look up to as having great training and all the abilities necessary to expand on the service and care that our office has provided for the last 3+ decades.

It’s uncanny the similarities of the position I was in, in 1986 looking to start a practice and the one Dr. Ziadat is in now. He has a new baby daughter (as I had), a new home (me also) and wished to quit the large practices he has been working in for a more personable approach to provide comprehensive dentistry for all his patients. I’m looking forward to having my families care provided by Dr. Ziadat and watching him build on this family of patients.

The staff will remain to help with the transition and continue their careers helping you with the care you have come to expect. I will be working part time to help with the transition and the melding of Dr. Ziadat’s philosophy of care and mine. Thanks for all the past and future support of our office.

Dr. Michael Schauwecker
