Thank Yous To the Employees of Temple College, Thanks for the lovely daisies that were sent to honor my daughter's birth. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of being remembered during this happy time. --- Angela Balch THANKS TEMPLE DENTAL COLLEGE & SANDRA LEIDY I want to express my deepest appreciation for you and for my dental hygienist, Sandra. You all were much more than I had anticipated. What wonderful professionalism Sandra has!!. She is so dedicated and committed to being a dental hygienist. It seems to me it is not "just a job" to her but a "calling" to help and be of service to people. She is so thorough and good at the job, but it is still more than that. Her true goodness and character come through without her even realizing it. By her attitude and actions, it is easy to tell she is a good person in every way. Even at my age (over 55), I'm still scared to death of dentists and dental hygienists, but she is so skillful in her job and so compassionate and caring, she immediately put me at ease and made me comfortable. The other hygienists and doctors who came in from time to time were also wonderful and I appreciate them also. I just know Sandra will be very successful in her job and whoever employs her will be so very pleased and thankful for her. I sure am!! Thanks for Temple Dental College and for Sandra!!!
