I have been meaning to drop you a note for some time to express my appreciation for the excellent care you have taken of my teeth over the past many years. I’ll be turning 70this fall and I’m so pleased that my teeth are in such good shape for a person of my age. I believe that you deserve most of the credit for this. As you recall, 11 or 12 years ago you suggested that I should consider having some bridge work done and I was initially somewhat reluctant due to my age and the cost of the work. In the end I decided to have the bridges, you made 3 for me. I am so glad I made the decision to have you do that work! It has made such a difference for me. I am now able to chew food properly and more easily. Almost a dozen years have passed since you did the bridgework for me and the bridges still seem today as good as new. I am also grateful for the gentle manner which you consistently display at all my dental appointments whether they before routine check ups or the more major appointments such as fillings or the bridge work. It’s so nice not to have to worry about whether a visit to your office will be painful. I am always confident that you will be as gentle as possible. In closing Dr. Jacob, many THANKS for the care you have taken of my teeth over the years. I am very happy with your work and glad to be one of your patients!
