Office Transition

A letter from Dr. Tim O’Bryan

After practicing in Farmington for over 10 years, my wife Kelly and I have decided to move closer to family.  We are moving back to Kansas City.  It has been my honor to be your dentist and to get to know you; both Kelly and I feel that each of you has become a valued friend.

After a long and careful search, I have found the right dentist to take over my practice.  His name is Dr. Cordell Lake, a very caring, talented and compassionate professional who shares my commitment to exemplary and personalized dentistry.  He has a strong background in all facets of preventative, cosmetic and restorative dentistry and brings with him some additional competencies such as root canals and extractions.  From Dr. Lake, I am confident that you will continue to receive the highest quality of dental care.

Like myself, Dr. Cordell Lake is a graduate of the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry.  He is from a small town about an hour north of Rolla and, for the past few years, has been practicing at the Lake of the Ozarks searching for the perfect location and practice.  Dr. Lake feels extremely fortunate and proud to be able to continue the strong and caring lineage of dentists who have served Farmington in this same location.  Both him and his wife, Melissa, are very excited to make our community their home.

I know you will be pleased with Dr. Lake and will extend to him the same courtesy and loyalty that you have afforded me and my staff over the last 10 years.  The staff will still remain the same and will continue to provide the excellent care that we strive for.

Dr. Lake and I have worked closely together to ensure a smooth transition in response to your specific needs.  We will gladly answer any of your questions about the transition in the weeks ahead.

Finally, your many kindnesses have always been appreciated; I will miss you.


Tim O’Bryan, D.D.S.
