Condolence From: Michelle Oviedo
Condolence: Twenty years is a long time to know someone. Even as just patient and doctor. Dr Rush was one of my favorite people to see twice a year. Music, real estate, life, anything could be a topic of discussion. How could you not envy a happy man in life and love? I am incredibly saddened to hear this news, even 24 hours later. It hit me hard. I will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you always. M

Condolence: Dr. Rush was the best of the best!! A beyond talented dentist but more impressive was the love of his family and zest for life. Sending prayers and much love to the whole family. Just heartbroken for them.

Condolence: I remember the first time I took our kids into Dr. Rush's Ahwatukee office for checkups. He looked into Dale's mouth and said, "I have a stubborn 7-year old, too." I learned later that was Kyle. Later in their teens Dale and Kyle became friends. I credit Dave for saving Dale's teeth even though he was very stubborn!! Cory and Nathan became friends as well. Dave is one of the best men, so helpful and kind and full of life. I'm sure you will often feel his presence with you because he now is your guardian angel...
