Mary, Tom, Bob and Doug and your families, I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Saghy's passing. I have such fond memories of working with him and Mary and others over the 11 years I worked at the office. He was like a father to me even though he was my boss. Very patient and a wonderful teacher. He was also a terrific Dentist and had the best patients. Your family will always be a part of mine. Rick and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dr. Saghy was the BEST Dentist we have ever gone to !...He could never be replaced !..When ever we would try a new dentist, the new dentist would admire my husband bridge was the BEST they had ever seen...Dr Saghy did this work over 40 years ago...never had a problem .... He will always be number one in our book...Prayers to his family for their loss...Doc will always have a special place in our hearts....

Mary, We've never found a dentist we liked as much as your Dad. We felt as though we were part of your family too. Hope he enjoyed his retirement years. Such a nice man.
