To Dr. Connelly & Staff

I want to just say I can’t thank you enough for giving me a reason to smile again and for all the kindness you showed.



Dr. Connelly & Staff

N.B. was in for her dental work this past week. The results of the dental work you did on her was wonderful.

She came to show me late on the same day you did the sleep/procedure work. I expected some changes, but not the beautiful white, new alignment of the front teeth and general great appearance. She had no after-numbness and even the next day no problems with chewing, swallowing or talking.—Amazing!

You and your staff truly did a fine job. Thank you for your great care

Dr Connelly & Staff,

I just wanted to send a thank you note after my recent crown and root canal.

I was very nervous and even with the unexpected root canal, I knew

I made the right choice coming to you. I was very pleased you could do everything in one visit and that you stayed late to do so. I was also very impressed with the follow up call.

Much to my surprise I was in very little pain and even started eating on it by the second day.



Dear Dr Connelly,

I am writing this letter to thank you and your staff for the outstanding service you recently gave me.

I have neglected my teeth for years due to my fear of having any dental work done. However, because of your knowledge, expertise, and kindness, as well as that of your staff.

I was able to set through a root canal without any problems. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am for the calm and pain-free experience you gave me.

I have a good amount of work yet to be done, but because of you and your staff, I am actually looking forward to it.

Thanks to you, I will eventually have my smile back, but what is more important to me is that I can now set a good example for my daughter.

Thanks again,



Dear Dr Connelly,

I’d like you to know that you’re the best dentist I’ve ever had. Can I take you to Traverse City area?

You have corrected my periodontal problems. You are very thorough and conscientious in your work. Because of your efforts my teeth and mouth is healthier than it has been in 20 yrs. I’ll never forget your gentle care.



Dr Connelly, I want to express my sincerest thanks to you and your staff.

On January 20, 2005 I came in for my routine dental checkup and cleaning. As a new part of the exam you took my blood pressure. It was very high and I had never had high blood pressure, so following my appointment at your office I went immediately to my physician’s office.

My doctor was concerned that I have Renal Artery Stenosis, so I was referred for an MRI for my kidneys. The films showed that I did not have Renal Artery Stenosis, but did detect a 3 cm tumor in my right kidney. A CT scan confirmed with a 95% accuracy that I have kidney cancer.

On March 16, 2005 I will undergo surgery to remove the tumor and part of the kidney. My prognosis is very good since the cancer has been caught so early. I have a 98% survival rate for five years.

I am so grateful that you care enough about your patients overall well being and not just their dental care to implement the blood pressure screening.

In my specific case it has saved my life.

Thank you.


Dear Dr Connelly & Staff

Thank you so much for the prompt and professional treatment you recently provided to Ben after his unfortunate incident at the bowling alley when his front teeth were broken. You took a negative and traumatic moment and turned it into a positive experience.

The sincerity and caring you showed began immediately with making yourselves available as soon as possible for treatment. The procedures were gentle and I really appreciate the extra time you gave to make Ben feel at ease. I am so thankful for the patience and time you took to make sure the insurance billing was correct. The follow-up calls you made to check on Ben were thoughtful and just reinforced how genuine you are.

To find people as trustworthy, caring and professional as all of you is truly a rare blessing. We wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of you and how grateful we are to know that you’re there for us.

This is what Dr Connelly’s patients are saying about sedation dentistry . . .

“I didn’t feel or remember a thing. I am still amazed at how much dentistry was done while I was sedated. It’s the only way to go."

“I use to dread going to the dentist. The anxiety about my dental appointment would keep me awake the night before. I was a wreck!  With sedation dentistry, I no longer dread having my dental work done.”

“I was embarrassed to see a dentist after so many years of neglect but Dr. Connelly and his staff were very caring and helpful. I got no lectures!”
