In Memorium: Dr. Joel Piehl


The Piehl Family has great news for you. The Practice has a new home, and we are happy to announce that you will be in the expert care of Ricardo Raschkovsky DDS, MS 

JOEL J. PIEHL 1940-2017

“Practicing periodontics has been a true blessing in my life. It is extremely gratifying to know that, through the work that I do, my patients are able to live longer, healthier, and happier lives.”  
Sadly, Dr. Piehl unexpectedly passed away a few days before Thanksgiving. The Piehl family – his wife Sarah, son Zach and daughter Leah, felt it was very important to preserve his legacy.  He loved caring for his patients and he valued their support over many years.  The family searched for several months to find a Periodontist he would have chosen himself. 

Their priority was to find a doctor who values a caring relationship where patients are also friends, has excellent clinical skills, is a good listener and approaches your dental needs in a conservative manner. 

Dr. Raschkovsky answered their wishes because above all, he cares about his patients.  That is his bottom line. 

Like Joel, Ricardo is a perfectionist, open to new discoveries, and excited to find new treatments for his patients. Again, similar to Joel, his humble nature belies Ricardo’s expert delivery of care.

Now for the personal side of things that seemed uncannily similar. Ricardo is an avid skier, also an AYSO soccer ref, doting dad, and like Joel, has a lifelong dream of traveling to space! He also two dogs, and like the Piehl’s, one is named Roxy!

“I know Joel would be so happy that his incredible legacy is continuing.” Sarah
