The merger of the practice of Grand Rapids dentist Robert Bochniak, DDS into the practice of fellow Grand Rapids dentist Ryan Van Haren, DDS that began in March 2009 is nearing a successful completion.  Both dentists have been working side by side at Dr. Van Haren’s office to transition patients from the care of Dr. Bochniak to Dr. Van Haren.

All of Dr. Bochniak’s patients who had appointments at Dr. Van Haren’s dental office at 2100 Raybrook SE, Suite 107, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 have now met Dr. Van Haren.  Many patients have expressed comfort with their transition of dental care to Dr. Van Haren with one patient stating, “Dr. Bochniak was my dentist for many years.  Sometimes transitions are difficult, but I feel l’m in excellent hands with Dr. Van Haren.”

According to Greg McGlaun, who is managing the merger of dental practices, “We had both fears and high hopes for the merger.  Our fears are subsiding and our high hopes are materializing.  A successful transition depends on providing a new dental home at which Dr. Bochniak’s patients feel comfortable.  Dr. Bochniak’s patients are now showing a high level of comfort with Dr. Van Haren.”

In a letter to patients, Dr. Bochniak stated, “It has been my privilege to have been able to take care of your dental health.  I have been fortunate to have so many wonderful patients.  However, the time has come for my retirement.  I will miss you all greatly.”
