How Do You Feel About Your Dentist?

I'm sure that question could garner a whole host of answers!

I first talked about our new Michigan dentist in October, 2009. I mentioned loving him, and his office. They have a monthly drawing for patient appreciation, and I'd won the adult drawing of two $50 restaurant gift cards. Very nice for our family that does not eat out so inexpensively anymore.

That same month, Buddy won the drawing for the kids, which was a $50 gift card to an entertainment chain store and was able to get a video game he'd been wanting for the wii. Nice, indeed. (Here's the link if you wanted to read the original post.)

Then last April Caboose won the kids' drawing. I had a theory on that one though.

While Hubby was recuperating from his surgery, one of the cards he received in the mail was from our dentist. Hubby had his teeth cleaned a few weeks before surgery and the office knew about it. They included a small gift card to Wendy's with the greeting card with a note to "give Kayren a break from waiting on you hand and foot."

Our orthodontist office is in the same building as our dentist, and Hubby went with me when we took Buddy for his visit on MLK day. He popped in to see the dentist office staff and say thanks in person and that he was recovering well.

Today we received an unexpected package on our front porch.

It's 24" long.

It's 13 1/2" wide.

It's 14 1/2" deep. It's a big box.

I opened it to reveal this:

It's called "Something for Everyone."

The card says, "Glad you're feeling better. Make sure you're brushing and flossing!" Then it has the names of all the dental office staff.

Unexpected kindness. That's just one of the reasons we love our dentist.

Shoot maybe I should move to Michigan...never mind the crazy snow...they have a great dentist! HAHAHAHA!

I like my dentist okay...except for paying him large exorbitant sums of money for him inflicting pain on me and others I love. Oh, and for making my kids cry...Lubby calls him the "scawee man wid da mask!"
