“The first time I wore my pearl necklace, I noticed it matched my teeth – I was astonished. Dr. Pettinato was so calm, kind and compassionate. Dr. Burns was a doll, too. (DDS Coordinator) Tammy always checked in with me on my treatment. It was a team of people who helped me. You never forget that. You guys have saved my life. ”

–Kathleen, a Pennsylvania DDS patient
