A Letter From Dr. Tyler

Dear Valued Patients,
As I celebrate nearly 40 years of dentistry, I want to thank those who have given me the opportunity to be your dentist. Your trust and confidence in me and our University Dental Associates (“UDA”) staff over the years has been professionally rewarding and personally humbling. Dentistry has been an inextricable part of my identity and I truly consider patients to have been more like family. Although this role has been one of the greatest privileges of my life, I have decided it is time to transition to the next chapter and retire (or at least give it a try).
Many of you are aware that two years ago Dr. Kennedy and I sold UDA to Dr. Walby. This transition has been gradual and ensured that the UDA staff and patients are left in capable and caring hands. Dr. Walby will continue to lead the UDA staff in our commitment to the community and I could not be more pleased with his leadership efforts. Dr. Kennedy and Dr. Fanelli, who joined UDA in 2020, will continue to practice at UDA as Associate Dentists. Furthermore, our staff will remain diligent in nurturing the relationships we have worked hard to establish over the years.
My last day with UDA will be on Thursday, May 27, 2021. I will still be residing in Rochester and look forward to seeing many of you around town. If you have questions or would like to stay connected please do not hesitate to reach out via email: .
Wishing you all the best in life and dental health.

Brian G. Tyler, D.D.S.
