Watching the Academy Awards always makes me think about who I’d thank in MY acceptance speech. Ok, not that I’m going to win any Oscars any time soon. But I do like to think about thanking the people who make everything run smoothly every day so that my dental office puts on a truly winning “production” week in and week out.
I’m talking, of course, about the office staff. A dentist can’t run the show solo, that’s for sure. You need a talented receptionist to welcome patients when they come into the office. In my office that’s Carla – she always has a smile for everyone and is ready to listen to your questions and concerns. If you call my office, she’s likely the one who will answer and help schedule your appointment. We truly couldn’t run this place without her!
Along with Carla, there’s David, our office manager. He’s the one who makes sure all systems are go, and the lights stay on. He’s the nuts and bolts, logistics guy and I’m very happy to have him on board.
So if I were making an Academy Awards speech, that’s who I would thank. What about you?
