    "My son had 2 teeth extracted this morning as part of an orthodontic plan and I felt that I had to write to thank the dentist for making this such a positive experience for us both! I explained that my son was nervous and so he kindly took time to explain the procedure and to understand and deal with my son's concerns. When it came to the procedure itself, he was very efficient and it was all over before we knew it. The dental nurse Beth was also very kind. Thank you :)"
