To the Editor:

It is too often that credit is not given where it is due so I am writing to do just that.

Having not been to the dentist in 5+ years because of a very bad experience with a dentist, I was a bit skeptical about seeing a dentist again.

I found it incredibly difficult to find a local dentist that #1 took my dental insurance but more importantly that #2 took new patients.

With a tooth that had broken off, it was imperative I get in right away. After my 4th attempt of calling local places to see if they took new patients, I finally was successful with Ogdensburg Dental Clinic (Dr. Abdul Majeed) on State Street in Ogdensburg.

The friendly and concerned receptionist advised he could get me in the next morning at 10AM and that they took my insurance!

When I visited the office the next day, I didn’t understand why they were able to take new patients because with their excellent patient care and service, it was surprising to me that they even had any extra appointments.

I cannot say enough good things about the dentist himself, Dr. Majeed. I had informed him that I have a habit of passing out when getting teeth pulled and sure enough, the tooth that was broken off, had to be pulled.

However, I have been back twice since and have done great! No fainting! He is a very gentle, caring, and friendly dentist! I highly recommend him to any patient who is in need of dental services.

I am grateful for the excellent and prompt service I have received thus far from Dr. Majeed and the entire staff at Ogdensburg Dental Clinic. Thanks again!
