I cannot express my gratitude for your contribution in changing my life. I have been unable to wear my dentures for many years. This caused serious adjustments in my eating habit, my physical appearance, and my self confidence. People made fun of me making faces when chewing the limited food I ate. I had given up simple things like steak, corn on the cob, salads, nuts and most of all, smiles. This may seem trivial to you, but this Christmas I plan on purchasing many pounds of mixed nuts. Every time I eat them I will give a silent thanks to you for helping make it possible to eat them. It has been about 10 years since I have been able to enjoy such simple things. People tell me I look 10 years younger and have a great smile. Your contribution may have been just another day at work for you. But an uplifting life change for me. Appreciation doesn’t describe how much this means to me. Thank you and may you be blessed as I have been.
Thirty three years ago I had crowns installed on several of my front teeth, for cosmetic reasons. This year I realized it was time for a change , I went to Dr. Schmidt for a consultation this spring, and today I cannot stop smiling. Dr. Schmidt replaced the existing crowns , added 4 existing crowns on top, and eight veneers on the bottom teeth. It took 4 painless procedures to give me the confidence to smile again.
I felt that my comfort and concerns were the most important issue at hand! Your entire office made me feel important instead of the other way around. Thank you. I have always feared the dentist and also have an irrational fear of loosing all my teeth like my parents. To all of you, thanks, for making me feel important today. Your professional and comforting office deserves to be commended.
