‘‘Less than a year ago I was concerned about smiling too broadly, for fear my broken and missing teeth might show. In addition, I avoided going to a dentist out of both general fear and embarrassment over my neglect of my teeth. Needless to say, smiling is no longer a problem, as you did a great job repairing my teeth, relatively painlessly I must add. However, more importantly, you and your staff always made me feel comfortable, never chastising me for the past. You have a patient for life!’’
