Andrew B, Gross, DMD

Paoli, PA Cosmetic Dentist

Paoli Family Dentistry

Dr. Gross retired on April 15, 2023. We will miss his smiling face and wit, but we are fortunate to care for his patients. His retirement letter follows:  

Dear Patients and Friends, 

As many of you know and for those that don't, I will be hanging up my shingle and retiring with my last day being April 14th.  It has been a wonderful journey that I have enjoyed sharing with some of the most special people that I have ever met.  People ask me if I am going to miss practicing dentistry, the answer is no.  What I am going to miss are the daily interactions and friendships that I have made over the past 39 years.   

Many of you have been with me for many years.  Our families have grown up together and we have shared many memories.  I have enjoyed watching all the children grow up and have been saddened by those patients that we have lost.  I wouldn't trade my experiences over these many years for anything.  I have been honored that so many of you have trusted in me and been a part of my dental family for these oh so many years.  I will treasure these memories forever.    

A year ago, I made the decision to merge my practice with Paoli Family Dentistry. In doing so, I have had the pleasure to work side-by-side with Dr. Rajeev Gowda, Dr. Julia LeCavalier, their wonderful and amazing hygienists and staff.  Everyone from the smiling faces you see when you first walk in to the clinical staff that made me laugh every day.  I am very confident in their abilities and commitment to their patient’s dental health. It is my greatest hope, and I highly recommend that Dr. Gowda and Dr. LeCavalier and staff can continue to care for you and experience the joy I have come to know, in caring for and getting to know you. 

Just so you know, myself and my family will continue to come here because of the faith that I have in them and so should you.  

 With my sincere thanks and gratitude to all of you!
