A letter to Dr Michael Turner’s patients, new and old. 


Dear Patients and Friends,

After thoughtful consideration, the time has come for me to retire from active practice, due to the injury to my right hand. I have had the honour and privilege of caring for the oral health of you and your extended family and friends for more than 35 years. I will always be grateful for your trust and dedication, and I will certainly miss the relationships and interactions we have had over the years. Thanks to the very hard work of my dedicated staff and your loyal patronage my practice has become a source of pride and satisfaction in my life, and now I would like to enjoy some quality time with my wife Bern and the rest of my family.

I know I will be missed at the Practice, but rest assured that I am leaving you in the caring and competent hands of Dr Meglin Rathnasamy and his associate Dr Jose Frias. I am confident that you will continue to receive the high level and standard of care that you have become accustomed to.

I handpicked Dr Meglin, because of his Practice Ethos, Values, and Commitment to his patient care. Dr Meglin comes with more than 20 years of experience and knowledge, with a special interest in CEREC and Implant dentistry. He is also well known locally for his Aesthetic Dentistry achievements.

Dr Jose is a JCU graduate with 9 years of experience and has been working in Emerald refining his expertise in general, cosmetic and implant dentistry – Emerald’s loss is our gain, as Dr Jose and his wife, Claire return to Cairns to raise their young family.

Knowing my patients are in good hands is a huge relief and certainly helps reduce the anxiety over my retirement, so please don’t hesitate to continue your oral health care at Dental on Martyn and we may even bump into each other in the reception area!

I thank you once again from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful years of being afforded the opportunity to treat you and your loved ones. The kindest of regards and wishing you great success in your personal and professional lives. And for one last time, as I love to say, ” May the Floss be with you “.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Michael Turner
