Please join us in extending best wishes to Annette Bujnowski, who is leaving Sukoneck & Wilson to continue working in the dental field. We are very sad to see Annette move on and we are supportive of her decision.
Annette joined our practice way back in 1989, as one of our dental assistants. Along the way she continued her education in the field, becoming a dental hygienist in 1993; this is the role in which most of you know her over the years. More recently, Annette became our office manager, practicing hygiene on a more limited basis. In all three roles, Annette set standards of excellence, ethics and caring about you, our patients, which have always been inspiring and will always be remembered and appreciated.
We are so thankful for Annette’s years at S&W and we truly wish her the best of success.
