- A physician from Wisconsin, who had suffered from bulimia, to Dr. Hall:
“It has now been 10 years since you provided my dental work to repair the damage to my teeth from my eating disorder. The work you did made a significant difference in my life.
“The shame from my eating disorder was immense. After the crowns were placed, at least I did not have to face the additional shame from physical reminders or the shame/terror of people seeing my jagged, chipped teeth and recognizing my illness.
“I have been delighted with the quality and appearance of my porcelain crowns. Over these past years, I have received a number of compliments on their appearance varying from lay people (who think they are commenting on my own teeth) to dentists who are impressed with the crown work.
“I have now been in recovery from my eating disorder for several years. It was a difficult and painful path. Your work helped to lessen the shame along the way and provided a sign of physical recovery/healing, reminding me that the damage could be repaired (physically and emotionally.)
“Thanks so much for doing such a good job for me.
