I am writing today to give you some important information about your future orthodontic care. After much thought and deliberation, I have decided to sell my practice. My family is in transition, and an out-of-state relocation may be on the horizon. I have truly enjoyed the relationships I have developed with you and all my patients and their families, and I wanted to make sure that everyone would be in good hands. This led me to search for the right doctor to assume my practice who would carry on my practice philosophy and maintain the environment that I have worked so hard to create. I was very excited when I found another orthodontist who had the same passion for orthodontics and treating people as I did.
I would like to introduce you to Dr. Darren Pakravan. He has owned Windy City Orthodontics in nearby Lakeview for 14 years. He grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and attended Northwestern University, followed by the University of Illinois Chicago for both Dental School and Orthodontic residency. Love My Smile Chicago will be merging with Windy City Orthodontics as a second convenient location. While we have been working out the details to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible for a couple months now, it is serendipitous that it is happening right at New Year’s!
Outside of work, Dr. Pakravan enjoys spending time riding and fixing his motorcycles and scooter. He also plays with his sweet rescue dog Cinder and likes reading, camping, and snowboarding. He loves to listen to live music as well as other arts and spends as much time as possible exploring the city and the world.
Dr. Pakravan will be assuming care of my patients effective December 31st of this year, and we will both be available to you over the next few months to smooth the transition. I sincerely thank you for your support, confidence, and patronage. I hope that you will exhibit the same trust and confidence in Dr. Pakravan as he maintains and builds upon the core values of which this practice was founded and built.
With best wishes,
Dr. Katharine Stevens
