Dr. Vettraino,

Dear Dr. Vettraino,

I wanted to write to thank you for all your diligence and the fine work you did on my poor tooth.  I was impressed with your skill but also moved by your humanity.  I realize that the first time I came in especially you could probably smell the fear coming off me, but you really put me at ease.  While I would not wish this on anyone else, I do know where I would send someone if they needed a root canal.

Thank you,

David Yang
