A note from Dr. Mastella regarding the sale of the practice:
For the past 25 years it has been my privilege to serve as your dentist. During this time many wonderful relationships have been forged. These relationships have grown and celebrated children, grandchildren, marriages, new careers, and retirements. I have shared in your smiles as well as your tears. This year, I shared with many of you a few joys, which I included my proud moment of walking my younger daughter down the aisle. Many of you know that my wife and I are looking forward to 2 grandbabies as both of our daughters are expecting this year! With all of these great joys ahead, it is time that I start thinking about the next phase in my life. To that end, it is with great pleasure that I inform you that I have sold my dental practice, but I am NOT retiring yet. I still plan to work my usual schedule for several years. The sale of the practice allows me to step back and have focus on my patients and spend more time with family.
I am excited to introduce you to the new owner, Dr. Tomicka Jackson-George. Some of you may remember her. She was an associate of mine about 10 years ago. She left the practice when she and her husband moved to Southern Maryland, but we remained friends and kept in touch. When they decided to return to Baltimore, they contacted me and the timing was right. I am excited to know that she is here to continue providing the same quality dental care that I have provided. Dr. George loves Baltimore City, and is looking forward to being an integral member of the community. She is able to offer the same great services that we have always offered, and more, including Invisalign. This means that now we offer Endodontics, Periodontics, and Orthodontics all at one location. Dr. George graduated from the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Dental Medicine and she did her residency at the Veterans Affairs Hospital right here in Baltimore City. She loves playing social sports, boating, and playing the ukulele. Please help me welcome her back to Baltimore, and back to our Mt. Vernon community. We are both looking forward to seeing you at your next visit.
