As many of you know, I have dedicated years to charitable efforts here on the Central Coast of California. Which brings me to the reason for this particular letter, it is with bittersweet emotions that we are announcing we will be leaving the Central Coast to travel doing missionary work. A wonderful colleague of mine, Dr. Kristin Newsom, will be taking over my practice to allow us this precious time to serve others around the globe. I think you will find Dr. Newsom to be an amazing asset to our community, as well as our practice here at Pure Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Kristin Newson and Dr. David Cottrell
Dr. Kristin Newsom is a 2005 graduate of University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco, CA. The doctor and her family have lived in San Luis Obispo County since 2007. After achieving her Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from UC San Diego, the doctor went on to pursue her dental degree at UOP. Knowing her love of children, she decided to specialize and did a residency in Pediatric Dentistry and received a Masters in Oral Health at the University of Illinois in Chicago where they lived for 2 years.
Dr. Newsom is happy to be retaining the entire team here at Pure Pediatric Dentistry. The team wants you to know that they have 100% confidence in Dr. Newsom and look forward to working with her. Precision and patient comfort is a prerequisite to Dr. Newsom's work quality. Being a Mom herself, she understands the needs of kids and their parents. She believes in conservative dentistry, tailored to each child’s individual case.
I feel very blessed to have found someone like Dr. Newsom to continue on in this practice. I am sure that you will find her knowledge, skill and personal attributes of highest regard. Your valued support and friendship has meant a great deal to me over the years. With deepest gratitude for you all, and everything you have done to make Pure Pediatric Dentistry the success it has been for over 20 years! We look forward to updating you on our family’s mission trip as the months go by.
David M. Cottrell, D.D.S.
