On December 31st, I will be retiring from The Montana Center for Laser Dentistry and the practice of dentistry. It has been an honor to have served you for the past 28 years in the Flathead Valley. I have truly enjoyed my relationships with all my patients. I have received endless satisfaction from caring for you and your families over the years. I look back at those years with fondness and pride of all that we have accomplished together.
It has been my mission to progress dentistry through technology both in the Flathead Valley and on a national scale. It has been a great source of joy for me and a legacy I am now proud to pass along to my partner, Dr. Dave Dodrill. Dr. Dave will be taking over full ownership of The Montana Center for Laser Dentistry in 2020. He has an advanced and modern approach to dentistry focusing on the health and well-being of our patients. We are also excited to announce, Montana native, Dr. Kalli Elford will be joining the practice. Dr. Kalli has spent the last several years practicing in Billings, MT. She has an incredible passion for dentistry and most importantly she shares the same core values and philosophies held by our team. Her focus is providing comprehensive care in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Dr. Green will continue to offer the same high-quality dental care as he has provided in years past. I highly encourage you to continue your dental treatment at The Montana Center for Laser Dentistry. The same friendly and caring staff will be here to continue to serve you.
I want to thank you for your trust and kindness over the years. The friendships I have made are priceless! My family and I won’t be going anywhere. You will see me playing a round of golf, hitting the ski slopes and I might even pick up a bowling ball again! After all, this is our home and where we raised our kids. And boy, once Glacier National Park is in your blood, it never leaves you! I look forward to the next stage of my life with my wife, Michelle, our children and grandchildren. Life is so precious, and I have been so blessed to be a part of yours. I am forever humbled by the great people of our wonderful valley!
Sincerely, Dr. Mark Colonna
The Montana Center for Laser Dentistry
