I began working for Alta Vista Dental Lab, Walter Skinner, owner, on June 6, 1976 here in Auburn. Walt retired a few years ago and sold his businesses and now due to the economy and automation, I find myself unemployed with the closure of Alta Vista Dental Lab as of Dec. 31, 2011. I was the head dental technician as well as manager for the lab for over 35 years. My letter is to say thank you to all of the patients I did work for and all of the dentists and employees that I have worked with over the years. It has been an honor and pleasure! Auburn is a great community with many wonderful people who are the best. Thank you for all you have done for me. To be able to work in this community was good for me and it allowed me, along with my wife, to live a great and safe life while raising our family. It is now on to new adventures for me. From the bottom of my heart — thanks, again. Mike Chapman, nationally board-certified dental technician, Auburn
