Dear Friends and Patients,
 I am deeply appreciative of the trust and loyalty you have bestowed upon me during my tenure as your dentist over the past five years. Unforeseen changes in our family and health have led us to the challenging decision to sell the practice. My foremost concern in the decision-making process was who would be best to care for you, my valued patients.  After careful consideration, I am thrilled to introduce Dr. Teagan Willes as the individual I believe is best suited to continue providing exceptional care to you.

Teagan Willes and family in Laguna BeachDr. Willes and his amazing wife Rebecca grew up in southern California. With their collie, they enjoy hikes around the area and beach walks whenever possible. They are excitedly expecting their first baby, who is due in the spring. Dr. Willes is an avid surfer and an artist, painting waves when he isn’t in the water surfing them.

Dr. Willes graduated from the University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry and possesses expertise in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatment, Invisalign, and pediatric dentistry. I am confident that Dr. Willes will uphold the care, artistry, and clinical excellence that has been the cornerstone of our practice. I trust that you will extend the same confidence to Dr. Willes that you've had in me. Dr. Willes is passionate, creative, gentle, and empathetic. His dedication to patient education empowers patients and allows them to guide their own treatment. Dr. Willes is committed to communicating simply and clearly, answering any and all questions you may have. He firmly believes that elevating oral health, as well as improving aesthetics, truly changes people’s lives. He is excited to continue the tremendous legacy created at Laguna Beach Dental Arts and looks forward to building lasting relationships with all his patients!

I will be in the office to complete treatment that is already in progress and look forward to introducing you to Dr. Willes. Thank you for the privilege of being your dentist, and I am grateful for the relationships we've built.

My very warm wishes. 

Kurtis Reitz, D.D.S.
