Dr. Michael Hubbert, owner of Hubbert Dental Clinic in Quitman for 38 years, passed away Saturday evening, October 9. Hubbert retired in May due to health issues.
In his retirement story in April, Hubbert stated, “I’ve had a severe heart problem, and it’s taken a turn for the worse. I’m going to have to have a heart transplant and probably a kidney transplant at the same time. I need to be close to New Orleans so I can be close to the hospital. I get symptoms of weakness and have some problems with my vision, so it’s not a good idea to be trying to treat people; it’s not fair to them. We want to make sure we do our best work. It just started in January where I couldn’t do this anymore.”
Dr. Hubbert cherished all of the patients he had the pleasure of working with.
