Meet Dr. Rodney B. Norling

Dr. Rodney B. Norling

Dear Friends and Patients,

As you know, I have been on a leave of absence from the practice of dentistry since March 1 of this year. I underwent mostly successful back surgery, a life-saving coronary artery stent procedure to correct a major blockage that I didn’t even know existed, and was blessed to be able to care for my mother in our home during hospice, as she was able to live out the final months of her life with her family close by. It has been a time of reflection and gratitude for all that my family and I have been blessed with. One of the richest blessings has been the honor of being able to be a partner in your dental health and to be enriched through our friendships as well. I continually feel as though I have been a small part of each of your lives and families and not just a dental provider. When I chose to merge our dental practice with Dental Arts of Mountain View, I knew that back surgery was in my future and that I could be completely confident in their commitment to continuing quality dental care while I recuperated. I had hoped that I would be able to return although I envisioned it being with a reduced schedule. Unfortunately, my back surgeon has been less enthusiastic about my return to practicing dentistry. He projects that I would be in pain again, possibly within a year after returning, requiring another more aggressive surgery. He projects that if I step away, I may be relatively pain-free for 10+ years. After more than 40 years of practicing dentistry, it is time to retire. This has been a much harder decision and taken more time than I thought it would, but it is time to move on to retirement so that Mary Anne and I can enjoy as much time as possible with our children, their families, and especially our grandchildren. Again, I will miss each of you and am so grateful for your trust in us all these years. I hope you know that I have that same trust in the doctors and team at Dental Arts. Dr. Van, Dr. Indah, and Dr. Beckstead are all extremely talented and ethical clinicians. The support staff is equally talented and welcoming. They were a joy to work with while I was there (Natalie and Carmen continue to work in the office and look forward to continuing your care). My confidence is evidenced by the fact that Mary Anne and I are still going there for our own dental treatment when we are in the Bay Area. Rosie or Cassy would be happy to help you with any scheduling needs or answer any questions. I know that each of you will continue to receive the highest level of care moving forward. If you just want to stay in touch, I would love to hear from you or can try to answer any questions you have as best I can via email at [email protected] With the deepest gratitude, I wish each of you all success, happiness, and of course good dental health in the future!

Thank you again for your trust and friendship!
