WHY I HATE BEING A DENTIST

Teamwork Means Dreamwork… so you’d better keep sleeping

Teamwork Means Dreamwork… so you’d better keep sleeping

They keep saying it’s the leader that makes a great team. They talk about how every toxic staff situation can be solved with great leadership. It’s supposed to be the dentist, the owner, the manager, the CEO, that brings people together, communicates a higher vision,...

You ARE Alone

You ARE Alone

I just got a terrible google review.  One star.  Complaining about my customer service.  How terrible my staff was to her.  And how awfully she was treated.  And Google won’t remove the review.  My lawyer says it’s not worth the aggravation to send her a letter to...

The Thing

The Thing

We’ve only been back to our dental office for a few weeks but the anxiety hit me like an eighteen-wheeler last Friday.  COVID-19 was a shock, then a rest, then an eye-opener.  We went back as newly revived dentists, ready to go back to work to do what we do best but...

The Haters

The Haters

Are you frustrated yet? Are you pissed off yet? Are you scared or fearful yet? Or are you just freaking hopelessly shocked yet? Yep. The world is upside down. What has happened in 2020 is the strangest, weirdest year ever! And I’ve gone through a refugee camp! I am...

The Magic Cure

The Magic Cure

“solve world hunger… tell no-one!” One of my favourite lines from the Grinch. And very true to heart when I get patients who think that we, as dentists have found the cure and ability to reverse decay, but we won’t tell anyone in some big group attempt to preserve our...

Christine

Christine

Every Christine I have ever met, I hated. It’s funny cause one of my best friend’s name is Christina but it’s totally different. Her name ends in an A and the others all end in E. Don’t be offended if this is your name. It really has nothing to do with the name...

I got Hermione’s Magic Wand

I got Hermione’s Magic Wand

It seems that my patients expect me to now predict the future. Ok, let me explain. When I took my daughter to Universal Studios last year, I bought myself Hermione’s magic wand. You might have some obvious questions here like:why Hermione? What’s a 50 year old doing...

How to Turn This Around

How to Turn This Around

The most difficult thing to do when you are sinking, when you are struggling, when you are literally drowning in fear, is to take accountability of how you yourself have contributed to where you are right now. No matter what you do, the first thing I always tell...
