“I want to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided for my children and our family. We are a family with five children and health insurance, but no dental insurance. We have known for some time our children needed attention to their dental needs, but it has been difficult for our budget. As a mother, I have worried and felt guilty regarding this matter and just even last week I was again wondering how I would fill the need for my family. Your services have been a wonderful and unexpected blessing. They have eased my mind greatly and I am so very grateful. May you continue your wonderful work and know you are appreciated! Love, Shannon R. and Family”
