South Lake Tahoe dentist Elizabeth “Betsy” Swope has sold her practice in Meyers to Jeff Chamberlain after 13 years. There will be a “Hello, Goodbye” party to celebrate this transition from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the Meyers Downtown Cafe and the Divided Sky, 3200 Highway 50 in Meyers, next to her office. There will be food and drinks in the cafe and a no-host bar in Divided Sky, featuring music by Carolyn Dolan.

Swope encourages her friends and patients to attend, to say goodbye and to welcome Chamberlain and his wife, Janet, to the community.

Swope has been a dentist since 1981, and has had her private practice in Meyers since 1995. Before that, she worked in Bishop on the Toiyabe Indian Health Project for the Children’s Dental Health Center in San Bernardino. She is licensed in both California and Nevada and plans to continue her work after a short sabbatical. Her office staff will remain at the Meyers location, 3170 Highway 50, with Chamberlain.

Chamberlain comes to Tahoe from his private practice in Santa Rosa, where he has been a dentist since 1979. He is especially interested in restorative and preventative dentistry, on cosmetic and implant treatment.

He and his wife have three dogs, three grown children and a 3-year-old granddaughter. The Chamberlains enjoy the multitude of outdoor sports in Tahoe, as well as botany, photography and swimming. They are living in the same house Janet’s parents built in Gardner Mountain before they married.
