Dear Ryan Park Dentistry Patients,
I am sending this letter to inform all our valued patients here at Ryan Park Dentistry, that my wife, Dr. Estela
Pena, has passed away after a long and courageous battle with her illness. Unfortunately, due to the given
circumstances, I have made the difficult decision to sell my wife’s dental practice. As I’m sure you agree,
Dr. Pena’s expertise and sincere care and concern created a strong bond between her and her patients,
and those who had the privilege of working with her.
Because Dr. Pena wanted her patients to continue to receive the best possible care, I have carefully and
personally selected Dr. Tarek Mogharbel to continue the dental practice as a new owner, whom we believe
possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely skilled in all aspects of dentistry.
Dr. Mogharbel graduated from Howard University College of Dentistry in May 2000. He has worked in DC
General Hospital in the oral surgery department and finished his implant studies in Boston University in
June 2004. He has completed his Master of International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Mogharbel is
also Invisalign and Lumineers certified and a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and fellow of
the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics.
Dr. Gunita Pahwa Kalra will also be a new addition to Ashburn Dental Studio and will be joining as an
associate dentist. Dr. Kalra was born and raised in New York where she received her Bachelor of Science
in Biology from Adelphi University and her Doctor of Dental Surgey from New York University. She
completed her general practice residency at Jamaica Hospital. Her favorite part of practicing dentistry is
educating patients on the importance of oral health and changing their image about dental visits by
providing painless and high-quality treatment.
As a token of appreciation to Dr. Pena’s patients, the new owner is offering a complimentary gift of free
whitening for life.
I am confident that Dr. Mogharbel and Dr. Kalra will continue to provide you and your family with the best
dental care possible. Our wonderful staff will be the same and will be there to assist you in any way they
can to ensure a smooth transition.
We will continue to be a participating provider with the same PPO dental insurance companies to keep you
as our most valuable patient.
Thank you again for your loyalty, confidence and friendship. Dr. Mogharbel, Dr. Kalra and staff are looking
forward to continue to serve you and your family.
Orlando Pena, MBA, MSMIS
