To our Patients and Friends,
It is with great sadness that I announce the loss of Dr. George, Sr., who passed away at home on October 15, 2018. He opened his first office in 1968 and continued working until he retired in the fall of 2016. He practiced mainly with his son, the late Dr. Raymond George, Jr. and his daughter-inlaw, Dr. Debra George. He was looking forward to his granddaughter Dr. Kelsey George working in the family practice he started, which will happen in the summer of 2019. Dr. George treated generations of patients and will always be remembered for his excellent care and dedication to his patients. I can still hear him singing to his patients each day I work in the office. In addition, he was very active in his local and national dental and orthodontic associations. He served as President of the American Association of Orthodontists along with having many other distinguished positions. His contributions to the field of orthodontics were immeasurable. Dr. George is survived by his loving wife Sonjia. They have three children; Semia Dunne, Christiaan George and Chafic George. He loved family and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren; Kelsey George, Jenna George, Nicholas George, Luke Dunne, Thomas Faria, and William Raymond George. He also is survived by a brother and three sisters, and a multitude of relatives and friends. Per his wishes, there will be no calling hours. There will be a mass held on Saturday, Oct. 20th at 1 p.m. at St. George Maronite Catholic Church, 1493 Cranston St., Cranston, RI 02920. We thank you for your kind words and wishes. As always, the practice will continue the tradition he started, delivering the highest quality care to our patients in a warm caring atmosphere.
