Reflections on the New Year

The New Year is a great time to pause and reflect on all the blessings of this wonderful profession of dentistry.

Without question the best thing about this profession is the people.  I am extremely blessed to have a staff who bring a full measure of skill and dedication. There is no way that I would be able to accomplish what I do without the support of assistants, hygienists and office people who are very dedicated, competent and a pleasure to be with.

I am blessed to have my schedule filled with appreciative patients. The people that we take care of are a diverse mixture of personalities. It is always very interesting and never gets boring. The trust that these people have in my recommendations is very gratifying and fulfilling.

I continue to be blessed in a field that is rapidly evolving and expanding in ways that enhance my ability to give care.  My peers and I are challenged to keep pace with the progression of dental technology in ways that force us to collaborate, innovate, and think critically. I am blessed to have the technology as well as a broad network of capable clinical partners.

Dentistry can be a challenge behaviorally, emotionally, and financially.  But usually with the aid of of my team we can overcome the many obstacles that we encounter daily. It is with the dedication of my staff that we achieved our level of success. I am incredibly grateful to all of the people who support me.
