Executive Leadership Transition Finalized at Local Dental Office, Continuing a Long Legacy of Patient Care
San Clemente, Calif. – June 8, 2010 The executive leadership transition has been finalized at the former office of Dr. Jon Marashi, with Dr. Eric Johnson officially becoming the new owner of this renowned dental practice.
Dr. Johnson enthusiastically accepted the invitation to become the successor to Dr. Marashi’s dental office after Dr. Marashi was offered an opportunity to purchase a celebrity dental practice in Los Angeles County. While Dr. Marashi deeply cared for his patients and the community he’d grown to love and found leaving to be a difficult decision, he knew this opportunity could not be passed up.
>Along with Dr. Phil Potter, the founder and practicing dentist of 32 years at this location, Dr. Marashi searched for the appropriate successor for over 5 months. The successor of the practice was to be someone who would continue the 37 years of legacy, namely excellent dentistry and unsurpassed patient care. They wanted someone who would care for both the patients and the team. There was no shortage of interested buyers as many dentists were thrilled to have the opportunity to submit their name to purchase this practice.
After reading a prospectus about Dr. Marashi’s practice while still living in Texas, Dr. Johnson knew that this was the patient-and-team-focused practice that he’d been looking for. Dr. Johnson flew to California for a meeting with Dr. Marashi which went very well and resulted in an offer from Dr. Johnson the very next day. After long conversations with both Dr. Marashi and Dr. Potter, the team knew decided that this transition would be the perfect fit for the practice and Dr. Johnson began preparing for a move to California.
A long-time Santa Monica resident and graduate of the University of Southern California and Pepperdine University, Dr. Johnson has thoroughly enjoyed returning to his home state. Since the completion of the purchase in April, Dr. Johnson has immersed himself in the community, meeting patients and their families and attending local events and functions. Dr. Marashi’s stellar dental team has remained on staff and is committed to the same high quality dental care for which the office has been famous for so long.
“It has been five weeks since the practice acquisition was finalized, and as each day passes, I am more and more impressed with my patients and team,” said Dr. Johnson. “Your generosity towards me and the transition is overwhelming and appreciated. I am grateful to continue the legacy set forth by Dr. Potter and Dr. Marashi and I commit to spend my career treating my patients and team with the utmost respect, while providing unsurpassed dental care. My family and I are excited to be involved in the community and look forward to meeting you, our community of San Clemente.”
