Patient Appreciation

April 14, 2012

I have been in my downtown Long Beach dental practice for a very long time. Everyday I try to do the very best I can for each and every patient. I obsess over the margins, shapes, colors and occlusion of my crowns and fillings, the fit of my dentures and the final position of the teeth in my Invisalign and orthodontic cases.

It is very easy to lose sight of the individuals that are attached to these teeth.  Last week, one of my very special patients brought in breakfast for me and my staff.  Bea just wanted to thank us for what we had done in the past to repair and maintain her teeth.  It is nice to be appreciated and this simple act made us realize what great patients we really do have.  Now, I am not trying to encourage any of our patients to bring in treats – I am just using this action to reflect on how lucky our office is to be allowed to work on such a great group of individuals.  Thank you for your trust and kind words.
