Giving 100% in Every Action
This was an important lesson that was taught to me when I was 14 years old. My uncle asked me to help him wash his car. As we were cleaning the car, he told me to clean in areas that no one would ever see, like the engine and above the tires. I said, “No one is going to see it, why should we clean it?” He explained that he asked for my help to clean the car. Neglecting to clean those parts was leaving the job incomplete. Often during dental procedures, I see portions of the mouth that other practitioners have neglected. I make sure to take care for these areas even though the patient might not know that these extra steps are being taken to achieve optimal results. So why do I do it? Because it is the right thing to do. Even if my patients never understand or appreciate the extra effort, I refuse to compromise the work even slightly for a substandard result. I want to give 100% of my best effort because that is what I would want for myself.
Being 100% Honest and Transparent
This seems obvious, but I have seen many offices lose patients because they try to take advantage of insurance claims or exaggerate a condition to get money. And though these are the most common examples, there is a deeper layer that can contribute to dishonesty: being unable to understand and know your limits as a dental professional. Sometimes doctors have good intentions but only end up delaying a disgruntled patient with unnecessary treatments. It bothers me when new patients come in, asking for a second opinion, only to discover that the treatment they had previously was unneeded. Honesty is telling the truth even if it does not benefit you directly. I help my patients by being a dentist who is truthful and candid about their care 100% of the time.
Learning from Success and Mistakes/Working as Unit
Working as single unit means that we strive to work in harmony. Google, the Navy Seals and almost every incredibly successful team works this way. As a team, we understand that everybody has responsibilities, but we are willing to lend a hand so each task is never viewed as a burden. We trust each other to complete each of our assigned tasks and to support the rest of our team. We do our work freely and are satisfied knowing that we have helped our patients’ lives be better.
We have found that other dental offices place profits above care, which often loses the trust of patients. At our dental office, profits are irrelevant. When we commit to doing a job we love, simply because we love it and have the skill and knowledge to complete it, the profits handle themselves.
As long as we treat each patient with love and compassion and keep motivated through this interaction, we create an environment where trust can flourish and our patients can be confident in the knowledge that the treatments we recommend are in their best interests.
We understand that going to the dentist can be uncomfortable. This can be because of past painful experiences and hurried practitioners who do inferior work. We want to help our patients overcome their fears by giving them a positive experience. We employ different coping mechanisms to help give power back to our patients. We provide high-quality work and compassionate care that you can trust.
