Dear Valued Patients,

The old adage “time flies when you’re having fun” has recently taken on a new reality for me. I look back over the last 25 years of practicing dentistry in Salem and marvel at how much and how rapidly dental technology and the delivery of dental health care have changed. While it was my intent to work in Salem until I retired, I now realize I need a change that will allow me to devote more time to my family and pursue other interests.

It is my privilege to announce that my practice will be merging with the practice of Dr.’s Paul and Vickie Bonar at the same location you’re accustomed to. I have known Paul and Vickie as classmates since Dental School (the late ‘80’s!), and through the years we have been classmates in many continuing education courses. We have practiced side by side for 18 years and I am confident they will provide the same level of high quality care that you and your family are accustomed to.

The team at Bonar Family Dentistry will be happy to assist you in this transition, and look forward to meeting each of you. Please find the enclosed letter of introduction for more information. They may be reached by phone at 503-581-4615, or 503-364-9222, or on the web: , or by email to: [email protected] .

I am honored to have been your Dental care provider over these years.



William D. Payne DMD
