Thank You Note to Dentist Examples

National Dentist’s Day is celebrated every year on March 6th. I am sure your dentist would appreciate a “thank-you” any time of the year!

The dentist is sometimes feared or even hated. Remember that “the dentist” is a real person with real feelings! You may not like the pain associated with some dental visits but you can still like and appreciate your dentist!

In October 2015, I lost two teeth to root resorption and decided to get dental implants to replace them. Having the teeth removed and implants put in (two separate procedures) was the most pain I’ve ever had in my life. Despite the pain, I was thankful for the outcomes: the bad teeth were removed and a few months later I had implants which allowed me to chew more normally.

I recommend sending a handwritten note to the dentist after a successful procedure or other experience. Has the dentist improved your smile or corrected a painful situation?

Their mailing address is probably going to be easier to find than their email address. And a handwritten thank-you note can be put on display. If the office chooses, they may also use your note as a testimonial on the website for their office (hopefully, they will ask your permission first).

Dear Dr. [dentist last name],

Thank you for the wonderful work on the fillings on my front teeth. The shade of white you used perfectly matches my other teeth. The filling is not noticeable at all. Also, the office staff is very nice and helpful whenever I schedule appointments or having billing questions.

See you in 6 months!

Hi Dr. [dentist last name],

My kids love having you as their dentist. All fears they had of “going to the dentist” have been removed. [Kid name] was scared when he found out that he needed a filling. Afterwards, he said it wasn’t so bad and you are a nice guy!

  1. Hi Heidi—-I never thought of sending a Dentist a thank you note–although I have been very thankful for the relief of pain they have helped me with! now I have something to think about. I would prefer for myself a hand written note! so that is what I would do.
