“The Lord raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap.”

C.S. Lewis

“If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small.”

Proverbs 19:17

“Those who are kind to the poor lend to the Lord and He will reward them for what they have done.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

"It warms the cockles of my heart to see such professionalism and compassion as you demonstrated this morning."

"I am so happy with my great results."

"Just a little note to express my gratefulness to you and the Lord for the kindness you expressed towards my daughter this summer. I am deeply thankful for your willingness to see and treat her and for the quick referral. You have always treated me and my family with exceptional generosity and thoughtfulness over the years. Not all doctors are so generous. Joy to you."

"Thanks for taking such good care of my patient’s esthetic dental needs. I saw her new smile for the first time this weekend and it looks great. She is very happy with the result and is very pleased with your service."

"Your encouragement has been much appreciated."

"As a new dentist in this country, we’ve faced a lot of difficulties. Luckily, we always meet with some warm-hearted people like you who offer us various kind helps. I am deeply impressed by this friendly country, and I am more confident not to start my new career here. I hope that one day I can enter the profession I love and be able to give my helping hands to other people in need. It’s so nice to get to know you!"

"I just wanted to thank you for blessing us so many times as our doctor. Today as I was coming in I prayed that God would take care of us somehow. because I didn’t know if we’d already maxed out our insurance this year. Then after our appointment when I asked for the bill I was told, 'No charge', I wanted to laugh because God is so good! Who ever heard of not getting a bill when you visit the dentist?! Anyways thank you for using your profession to bless. God bless you in return."
