There is not enough space here to share how thankful my husband and I are for Dr. Dachowski and the team that took care of our son on the eve of Thanksgiving. The care that your team (and the team at [the hospital]) once again showed my son with autism was clearly unmatched. Your kindness meant so much to our family and please know how grateful we are for you and your office. I have heard nothing but great things about how my son is treated when he is with his team, and we have seen it first hand. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very blessed 2016!

To Whom It May Concern,
On Wednesday, October 14, 2015 my husband had full lower teeth extractions done by Dr. Michael Dachowski…[my husband] has advanced dementia/Alzheimer’s disease and has recently exhibited combative and aggressive behavior. He wasn’t “having a good day” when he woke up on Wednesday and was rather uncooperative. I was very anxious about how that day would go.
I must tell you that from the moment we arrived…and were taken back to the pre-op/prep area, my husband’s whole demeanor changed due to the caring and friendly attitude of the staff. [They] treated him with respect and kindness. They even got him laughing and back to his old charming social self.
Thank you for having such high standards for your employees and for the compassion shown during a very anxious trying time for both my husband and me.

Dear Dr. Dachowski and Team,
How are you? Dr. Mike, thank you for your kindness during our son’s surgery in May, 2015, (fractured jaw).
Your team was excellent in working with him and his specific needs (as was prevalent during your bedside manner during our interactions).
Thank you from our hearts for making this tough time for him a little brighter.

My name is AW. This is a random email, but I wanted to say thank you to Dr. Dachowski and Dr. Sock. I had surgery last June.
This week has made me reflect on the jaw surgery; last week, a friend (MK) living with my family broke her jaw in a field hockey accident. We (of course) recommended this practice, and Dr. Sock fixed her jaw on Wednesday. Lucky for her, we’ve been through this before: we have liquid meal recommendations and extra jaw ice bags and everything. She’s doing well.
I’m extremely thankful for my jaw surgery; everything went so smoothly, and I love my smile now. Exactly one year after the surgery, I was interning in Kenya and thinking about how much difference a year makes. And how much I love crunchy foods. Plus, last week during my back-to-school dentist appointment Dr. Granados told me that my surgery results are the best he thinks he’s ever seen. That’s no reflection on me, but it was wonderful to hear. I thought you might like to know.
So, thank you. From Maddie and me.
Hello – I just wanted to send a quick thank you… I was in the office yesterday for a wisdom tooth extraction and I was very pleased with everything. I called Monday and requested to be seen ASAP – they fit me in the very next day. I really appreciate that type of customer service. The doctor and dental assistant were great and made me feel at ease. Everyone at the office was very nice and even thou it’s a pretty far drive for me, I will definitely be back if I need any more dental work (but let’s hope not!). I even received a call today just checking in to see how I feel – that is definitely going the extra mile – so thanks for a very pleasant experience!!
Dr. Sock & team,
I can’t thank you enough for squeezing me in on Friday & Monday to remove my wisdom teeth. It was such a sense of relief to have this taken care of prior to our home settlement on Friday. The professionalism of the practice and friendliness of the people make a great impression. I will surely recomend you in the future. Thanks again!

I sincerely appreciate your care and kindness to me regarding my tooth implant. You have my deepest gratitude. Your father was always so kind and friendly to me. I missed him when he retired. You are truly your father’s son. Thank you so very much.
Dear Dr. Dachowski and Staff,
I wish to thank you on behalf of myself and my daughter BL. Again, I am grateful for the professionalism, kindness and courtesy given by you and your staff. We appreciate the promptness with which you consulted and successfully treated my daughter. Yes, she is now the 3rd generation! We are very glad that you are our doctor!

You have a very nice way with my boys, allowing them to express themselves about their fears, taking what they say seriously, and providing comfort and understanding to get them through the experience. I don’t think he has any more teeth for you to pull and hopefully will not need anymore but it’s good to know that we have a friend/ doctor to take our boys to!”

This has come from knowing most for 20 years or more and some for less time. The time, effort and care you afforded to patients will be remembered. To say that each of you represents what is best in our practice profession would be too short change our profession and you, what will be said are that each of you represents what is best in human kind. I have always told my kids that success in life is not determined by the amount of money made, or the toys accumulated, rather success is defined by the difference you make and the joy you bring to others. If people don’t smile when they see you, and don’t speak in laudatory terms when describing you, than all you have done is become rich. All of you become successful, wealthy in ways that only others can aspire to.” -TG

My experience with your staff was, from the onset, positive and pleasant. As I scheduled my first appointment, I immediately noticed the difference in your staffs’ demeanor. On every occasion, I was given appointments conducive to my hectic schedule and even detailed directions to your office for my initial consolation. At each subsequent visit, your staff was consistently professional, gracious, and accommodating. In this hurried world it is refreshing to that there still are practices that care about their patients. Thank you for a positive and pleasant experience. I will continue to recommend your office to my colleagues and friends.” -MF
