MY BIG PRESENT THIS YEAR

A Chance to Unwind

Everyone says that renovation projects always take longer than you expect. It turns out they aren’t kidding. Our office renovation has been quite the process, full of delays and hiccups. Finally, though, the upgrades and spruces are complete, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. In a sense, the renovations are a gift to our patients and a way to say thanks for all they’ve contributed to the practice over the years. We’re not raising prices in order to pay for the project, because we believe our patients deserve the best. It’s our responsibility to provide the best care and comfort without putting undue financial burden on the people who walk through our doors. We’re fortunate to be in the position to do just that, which makes all the effort more than worth it. That being said, I’m certainly excited to get back to being a dentist for the entirety of the work day. Over the past fewmonths, I’ve had to wear the hats of handyman, interior designer, and foreman. At first, these added roles were exciting and fun, but I was more than ready to retire from them once the renovations were complete. After all, the chance to do cabinetry work was not one of the reasons I pursued dentistry.

In the Thomason family, the holidays this year will be all about spending our first Christmas in our new home. That’s a major milestone, one which we hope to commemorate with plenty of hot cocoa, Christmas movies, and quality time together.

A person can only watch “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” so many times, and I didn’t want to be burned out on cheer before the big day itself. As I look back on the year, I realize howmonumental it’s been. Frommoving into a new house to putting a personal stamp on the practice, I’ve never felt more at home in Eagle. A lot of the credit for that goes to the team and patients at Eagle Dental Care, the people who’ve become my friends and neighbors. I am so grateful for all you do and want to send my warmest holiday wishes to all of you. I hope you enjoy the photos of our newand improved office that accompany this article. It may look great now, but it took a lot of work to get here. Thanks for hanging in therewith us during the process. –Dr. Chris Thomason P.S.

While the renovations themselves are a gift for patients and teammembers, seeing them completed is probably the biggest present I’ll receive this year. I can’t tell you how elated I was to see everything come together, especially because there were days when I thought it would never be done. Finishing up before the holidays was wonderful, as it gave me the chance to relax and unwind without worrying about deliveries, loose screws, and
