Giving Tree of Hope Project 2011

 Thank you to all the offices who shared their favorite memories, traditions and statements of thanks with us during our Giving Tree of Hope project in December here in the Fargo, Moorhead, and Lake's area.  It was heartwarming, touching and FUN reading what you had to say.  

Due to you sharing your responses we will be able to share in the Christmas Spirit with many area children...we know they'll enjoy their gifts, and most of all, be filled with the knowledge that people care!  Thank you for participating in The Giving tree of Hope!

Enjoy a sample of our referring dental office's responses:

We'd like to share a 

"This year we decided to have a new tradition, "Elf on a Shelf."  We have not named the elf yet, but he watches the kids when they are home and at night he goes back and visits Santa to let him know if they  have been naughty or nice.  The kids cannot touch the elf otherwise he will lose his magic.  The kids love this!  ...Jessica

My favorite tradition is Midnight Mass.  There is nothing more special than a beautiful service with candlelight then wakling into a crisp, snowy, and starlit night with your family." ...Dr. Grieger

I am so thankful to live in America and ND in particular.  Great neighbors and precious friends, wonderful sfety and great schools make this a wonderful place to live and raise a family....Dr. Schlect

We have a family tradition that was started by my grandparents.  On Christmas Eve we always have oyster stew and afterwards we open our presents.  We all sit in a circle and take turns so everyone knows what each person gets.  We still do this today even though my grandparents have passed away...Laura

Making cut out sugar cookies with my mom every year and giving them to friends and family.  Now the traditiona is being carried on to my children--they love baking with Grandma!...Stacey

Patient and Referring Physician Testimonials

 I’ve had several root canals and can’t say how much I appreciate going to your office for one. This really comes to light when I hear my sister and a friend, who both live in another area of the state, needed root canals. It was not a comfortable experience for them…to say the least. My friend said she was in the chair for three hours! Three hours!!! I believe one of my root canals required an incision in my gum…I’m pretty sure I didn’t spend three hours in the chair for that. I really feel bad for anyone that doesn’t have access to an Endodontic office as I do.

Thank you so much for the fine work you do!


"I came to my appointment expecting a major interruption in my day.  I was so impressed with the timeliness of my appointment...I was in and out in an hour and was able to return to work and my daily activities!"

Karen - Fargo

"I cannot believe how much things have changed since I had my last root canal 10 years ago!  I can actually say this was a breeze."  

John - Valley City

"From my first contact on the phone making my appointment, to my actual treatment by Dr, Taylor and his assistant, I felt completely at ease and cared for as if I were a friend.  I could not have asked for better care.  Thank you!"

Hannah - Detroit Lakes

"I was very anxious for my appointment, as I am with all my dental appointments. You kept reassuring me that I would be pleasantly surprised and didn't need to worry.  You were right!  I don't know why I spent so much time worrying...now I know better."

Jen - Wahpeton
