Sometimes in your life you feel that there are things that need to be said and actions you
wish you had taken, and most of all, people you should have thanked. Well this is one of those letters.
Just over a year ago I was forced ( by losing one of my front teeth ) to seek dental help.
Lets just say at this point in my life I had not been to a dentist for a long time, and had
developed a certain fear of dentist and a fear of how I would be treated for the neglect I had
shown toward my teeth.
The luckiest day of my life
was when I stumbled into the office of Dr. Meyers. His staff treated
me with respect and understood my fear and went far out of their way to make me feel comfortable about
what was going to happen and how I would react. They took time to explain and demonstrate what procedures
were needed and, most of all, why it was needed. No rush job here. Lots of help and encouragement.
Trust was being built.
I had to have all my teeth removed and dentures made. Scared!!! You Bet. They made my dentures and set
the date for removal of my teeth. The big day arrived and I was in a panic. I am going to back out of this
for sure. But I didn't. As soon I got to the office again I was put at ease. They numbed me and Doc hummed
to me and made small talk with encouragement while removing a life time of bad dental problems. I went home
with new teeth and a knockout smile.
It took a little while to learn to work my new teeth, but I got the hang of it. Six months later
I had them realigned. They fit like a glove. I eat apples, corn on the cob, and hard candy
just to name a few. Things I couldn't eat with my own teeth. Make no mistake about it. Keep your
teeth as long as you can, but if you can't, see Dr. Meyers and his staff. If you want to be reassured
or talk to someone that has been there, call me. Get the number from the staff.
So it's been a year. I was sitting here eating an apple
and I remembered that I hadn't thanked you or
your staff. Thanks for making it work for me.
Your toothy friend,
