We genuinely thank our patients so much for their loyalty and their trust. Our patients have blessed us and our work immensely. Dr. Venincasa can honestly state that the relationships with his patients are the greatest gift he has received as a practicing dentist. The practice of dentistry has been a huge source of joy for Dr. Venincasa; his patients are the reason why. It was when he was four years-old that Dr. Venincasa had the realization that he wanted to be a dentist. The desire never left him.
These days when Dr. Venincasa resumes his work within his practice following a long weekend off or following his vacations with his family, he finds himself so grateful for his work, his work routine, and his patients. He says that he cannot imagine ending his practicing dentistry. He always comes to the realization that “I have a need to be productive in some way, a need to help others. Practicing dentistry fills this need and creates an immense source of satisfaction. Our patients are such a blessing to us.”
We offer this thanks-giving to our patients. Our nation’s leaders found this same desire in thanks-giving. It was the Presidents of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt who were instrumental in creating our current national Thanksgiving Day. It was in 1863 when Abraham Lincoln, in a proclamation at the height of the Civil War, entreated all Americans to ask God to “commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife” and to “heal the wounds of the nation.” It was in 1941 when our Congress officially named the current fourth Thursday in November as the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day.
We are closing our office at noon on Wednesday, November 26, 2014, for the Thanksgiving week so we can enjoy this special national holiday with our families. We look forward to caring for you all again on Monday, December 1, 2014. For those of you in an emergent situation during this time, please call the office number and follow the instructions to have Dr. Venincasa contacted. For those of you who do have access to his mobile number, feel free to contact him in that way with any emergencies. Feel free to leave us non-emergent messages so we can contact you when we return.
May your Thanksgiving be enjoyable and peaceful! May God continue to bless you and your families.
