Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
