My 2015 Self Reflection As A Dentist

Hi, this is Dr. Ryan Francis, DDS from Grove Health Dental.

Today is Self-Reflection Day! I encourage you to look at your job as an occupation or even as a parent, and just focus on things that you truly enjoy the most about what you do.

Personally, as a dentist, I enjoy three key things about what we do here at Grove Dental Clinic – alleviating the fear of the dentist, restoring smiles, and meeting new people.

Alleviating the Fear of the Dentist
There is nothing much better than meeting people who despise coming to us. They sit down and realize that we are capable of helping them. We have a lot of tools at our disposal that help make their experience much better than they realize. More importantly, we help them realize that we are normal people who truly want to help them.

Restoring Smiles
Apart from the other two things mentioned here, restoring smiles is the most rewarding for me.

Whether we are restoring people’s smiles through Invisalign, veneers, implants with or without dentures, there isn’t much better than seeing their smiles for the first time. And we are not even looking at their teeth, we can see them smile through their eyes -- that’s all you need to see! A lot of people told us that these restored smiles have changed their outlook and sometimes even their entire personality. People, who have not shown their teeth before, come in and eventually show ear-to-ear grins! Seeing these smiles is truly rewarding.

Meeting New People
I love meeting new people every day. I love the opportunity to get to know our patients and as a dental provider, create a positive impact on them in one way or another.

Whatever you do, I challenge you to take a look at your occupation. Reflect and find a few things that you love. Focus on those things, try to hone them and make it a bigger aspect of what you do.

I would like to note that it’s Dental Patient Appreciation Day. I would like to thank all of our Grove Health Dental patients for continuing to see us. As a thank you for our clients, we will be tripling our referral gift and the details will be posted in our blog.

Again, thank you for allowing us to help others out and doing what we love! Have a good day!
