Massachusetts hospital shuts down dental clinic as dentist exits

Oak Bluffs, Mass.-based Martha's Vineyard Hospital is set to close its dental practice Nov. 20, following the departure of its dentist, according to The Martha's Vineyard Times.

Jasmine Gear, DDS, the clinic's sole dentist, is leaving the practice for family reasons, according to a statement cited by The MV Times. The dental clinic does not have a replacement dentist and will be shuttering at the end of November.

The space will now be used as a "flexible clinical treatment space," Marissa Lefebvre, hospital communications specialist, told The MV Times.

The dental practice opened in 2007 and included five staff members, some of whom may continue working at the hospital.
