Giving Back

December 3, 2017

Last month Nicole (one of our dental hygienists) and I participated in an annual event called Care Harbor. Physicians, nurses, dentists, and hygienists along with their support personal and volunteers donate their services to treat thousands  of poor people  who line up for days  to be seen.  It is a great feeling to be able to give back by making a small contribution to another’s welfare.

Promise Honored

September 30, 2017

My son’s gift to me this year was a hiking trip to Glacier National Park in Montana .  What was so special was his promise to hike at my pace.  Michael is a strong fit 24 year x swimmer and current rock climber.  He adds a mental and physical  intensity to everything he does.  I am a 61 year old dentist with two broken toes and an inconsistent and “light” exercise routine.  I would not have stood a chance if not for this “promise”.

What a present!  What a promise!!

Michael warned me that it would be hard and not fun if I did not get into better shape. With the encouragement of Kyle, one of the trainers at the Equinox gym, I worked out almost every day.  Treadmill, Stair master , Spin Classes, light jogs.

I am writing this blog so it is apparent that we survived the mountain.  The first day was the longest hike and despite blistered feet, I finished in a reasonable time.  Michael left once to explore an additional trail with no consequences. The second day involved a change of plans.  The fires raging below us dictated that we find a safer trail.  Michael found a narrow trail and we proceeded.   At a fork in the path, he wanted to take the road to the top, one that would give him a view to one of the Glaciers.  We separated and his plan was that we would meet on the trail, he on his way down and me still going up. Later we found out that this was Bear Country and it was not advisable to travel alone !

We had a great trip. Michael knew my limitations and accepted them.  I am looking forward to our next adventure.  Mount Fuji ?

Promise Honored.

I love my son.

Dental Experience

February 6, 2013

Penn boys

Shown here are five of my dental school buddies (and myself).  We recently got together in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for some skiing and dental continuing education.  Together we have over 180 years of clinical dental experience.  It was fun to ski a tough mountain and discuss our failures and  successes in life and in dentistry.

We brought along an oral surgeon to lecture on surgical procedures and drug regimens and dined on buffalo steaks and burgers.  Our hair lines are greying and receding but none of us has lost his enthusiasm for dentistry.

Communication in the Digital Age

September 18, 2012

Image     Our dental office is going through the interesting task of changing the way we ccommunicate with our patients.  This is another step in our ultimate goal to become paperless, efficient and convenient.  The digital age is upon us.  We do apologize if the newsletters, appointment confirmations, e-mails and text messages are a bit too much but we are going through the process of streamlining all contacts.  Apparently our office management software does not provide all of the answers so we are trying out other vendors. 

    If we have your mobile cell phone number or e-mail address, we will use these two days before your appointment to remind you of the time.  If you respond, we will not contact you again.  

     If you have a scheduled appointment, within one week of this date, you can go to our website (www.drhauss.com) and update your medical history by pressing the tab “Patient Information” or if you are a new patient, pressing the tab “New Patient Forms”.

     Thanks for your patience. The future will be better for everyone.  We would appreciate any feedback or comments.
