S. Clarke Woodruff, DMD

Dentist located in Hellertown, PA

The time has come for me to start another journey in my life. I have decided to retire from private practice in the very near future. After 43-1/2 years, 4 years in the Air Force, and 39-1/2 years in private practice, the time has come for me to step down. This was a very difficult decision, but things in life never stay the same. I cannot express adequately all the joys to have known so many of my patients on a personal and professional level. I will miss the regular interaction with my patients when they come in for their checkups. It was also very heartwarming to know that I was able to render the care for my patients that made a very positive impact on their lives. I shall miss seeing the glowing faces after we have delivered care that improved the smile, wellbeing and overall health of my patients.

Effective on or about 1 February 2020, I will be selling my practice to Dr. Rajesh Kaswala. He graduated from Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine in 2014 and is a service member of the United States Army Reserve. He practiced in NJ and MA for many years and received Employee of the year award in 2015 in Massachusetts. Dr. Kaswala, currently practices as an associate in a practice in the Allentown and Perkasie area for the last two years. He has broad experience in Cosmetic, Family, Implant and General Dentistry. Dr. Kaswala also received a MBA from the University of Northern Virginia. I have full confidence in his skills as a dentist and have no second thoughts about passing the baton to him. I will be available for several months after the transition to aid and assist Dr. Kaswala in the changeover. Any complex dental care that I have started prior to 1 February 2020 will be completed by myself. Our patient records, x-rays and my staff will remain with the practice to make the transition as easy as possible for you and your family.

Dr. Kaswala is married to Dr. Bhumika Patel. His wife is a hospitalist for Lehigh Valley Health Network. He is also a father of two beautiful boys with the youngest born in past December. Again, I would like to thank you for your confidence and support over the years and extend my best wishes for your continued dental health. Please help me in welcoming Dr. Kaswala into our community and allowing him to attend to your and your families dental needs. Thank you!
