  • Avatar Mary Hillman says:

    Where do you start? So much to be thankful for. Family and friends, good health. But mostly I’m thankful for my 2 amazing daughters who both remind me every single day what true strength is really about. In their short lives they have had to endure the greatest loss of all. That of a parent but through that they have learned to be strong caring, giving young woman who appreciate everyone and everything. My oldest daughter was diagnosed last year with a rare chronic condition and due to that had to endure 3 surguries last year and because of her true inner strength handled everything so amazingly. They are a true inspiration. I am truly thankful that everyday I can look at their actions and thoughtful natures and realize three beauty is within them and continues to grow everyday. I am a stronger mother and woman because of them. Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Season to everyone.

  • Avatar Angela Rasmussen says:

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and staff!
    I am very thankful everyday that I have such amazing parents that been by my side and helped me grow into a successful mom, wife and have an amazing career. I was born an amputee and my parents were always there by my side. Encouraging me, never treating me different and always, always not letting me take the easy way. With them and their encouragement there was nothing I couldn’t do, from cheerleading, to basketball, tap dancing, and eventually having A successful career as a Marketing Manager for Mohegan Sun. Today I am so proud of everything I have accomplished and I am proud that I never gave up on anything. I now work in an elementary school with 600 kids and I truly believe that teaching them to love yourself, be happy with who you are and never say I can’t is a strength I received from the best parents on earth. And on top of that I am so lucky to have three beautiful children, a wonderful husband, and an amazing ex husband that despite our divorce we are the best parents to our children. I am truly lucky.

  • Avatar Robin Beaupre says:

    Thankful is an UNDERSTATEMENT!
    Dr. Jeff and his staff especially Mary for our consultation, always made our son Alec and myself feel so comfortable in what we have always known as a “sterile” environment but we now know it as a “comforting” atmosphere.
    So many questions we had as our procedure which is still going on is very complex.
    Since the age of 3 our son has been told certain trigger words about his impacted tooth growing up towards his nose/eye and none with the compassion that this team has delivered.
    It has helped to change our perspective of the orthodontist and dentistry as a whole.
    We are big fans of how they involve other dentists and find the best possible solution to a very serious situation.
    To use the words of Dr. Jeff would be to say, “I treat each child as if they were my own.” Its because of that bed side manner which is so hard to come by in this world our son can now feel comfortable with what is going on without fear or loosing sleep.
    We are still going forward with all of this and are taking it one step at a time, but its because of the follow through of Dr. Jeff and his team, we are ready for the next stage going and can do so without reservation knowing it will all work out and our son will be able to smile again because he will love what he sees when he looks at himself.
    Thank you so much!
    Jeff and Robin Beaupre

    Honestly, I am thankful for family. The smile on my children’s faces, their hugs (or an “I love you text”). I am also thankful that we don’t have to struggle with heat, food, or housing as we have in the past. Finally, thankful for my friends. They keep me going.

  • Avatar Amanda Shiman says:

    I’m thankful everyday to be blessed with a loving husband, who is my very best friend and a devoted, fun father. I’m blessed to have 3 happy, healthy, hilarious children- who at 10, 8, and 17 genuinely love to hang out and spend time with me and their dad. I’m thankful to have amazing friends in my life, who are like a breat of fresh air. And my mother in law is the kindest, most caring, nurturing soul I’ve encountered. I extremely grateful to her, and hope to be that amazing to the people my children eventually choose to settle down with.
    Happy thanksgiving!

  • Avatar Darlene Yarmey says:

    I am thankful for the things many people take for granted; fresh air, plentiful food, a warm house, clothes, friends and family. I’m thankful that I live in a country where I can be free everyday. I’m thankful for each of the people who fight and have fought for our freedom so we can come together and enjoy a thanksgiving meal and then enjoy shopping in the cold, nippy air. I am thankful to be alive and to spend each moment with my kids and my husband. I’m thankful to have a great life, filled the fun and grief, pain and exhilaration, worries and wishes and most of all to be able to remember these things when I am old. I am truly thankful…

I am thankful for my daughter, and though I am a single mom, I am thankful that by the grace of God, I am able to provide her with what she needs, and even sometimes give her what she wants. I am thankful she is at a school where she is happy, because she is doing what she likes to do. I am thankful that I have both of my parents around, and that my daughter is able to know them. I am thankful because even though things aren’t exactly the way I want them to be, everyday that I live is a chance to make things happen!

  • Avatar Theresa Hall says:

    Since I was diagnosed with Gastricperisis in February, I have a constant battle everyday; however, throughout all the pain and misery, I’m thankful for all the hardwork my doctors put in to trying to battle my illness. I could not be more thankful for the emergency room doctors trying to work with my on my bad days. I am thankful for all of my specialist I have and will soon be meeting. But most importantly, I am thankful for my family for battling this with me by my side at all times. They provide me with everything I could possibly need and they are giving me the opportunity to have amazing teeth so when I do get better I can have wonderful oral hygiene. Thank you for everything Dr. Jeff and team!!
