Dr. Robert J. Bendzak has been practicing dentistry and orthodontics for 60 years in Kenmore. Each year he has held an open house where patients and the many acquaintances drop by for an eggnog, coffee and cookies. The day has historically been to celebrate with his patients and to check their retainers. This year is a little different.

Bendzak, 87, has announced his “sort of retirement” and this year’s Eggnog and Cookie Day will double as a retirement gathering for the community and all his patients through the years.

“Dr. Bendzak’s office has never been computerized therefore a mailing List for the last 60 years of patients is impossible,” said Jody Wellnitz. “…we know that he doesn’t want a big retirement party and we want to put a shout out to the community that he will be retiring…”

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 19-20 at the Kenmore Dental Clinic, located at 6503 NE 181st street in Kenmore.

For more information, call (425) 486-5033.
