The Happy Tooth


There is a lot to celebrate around the office during the month of July, and I don’t just mean the Fourth of July. My sister, Dr. Janice, celebrates her birthday at the end of the month, and so does the office manager of our San Diego location, Goli Godarzi, whom I am lucky enough to consider my adopted sister. In addition to their birthday celebrations, we’ll also be throwing a big office baby shower for two team members who are both expecting.

“I want the women in my life to feel supported as they enter new chapters of their lives.”

make in order to do right by their kids, so the least I can do is throw a party for them! I want the women in my life to feel supported as they enter new chapters of their lives. The team at our office is truly one of a kind. I’ve never worked in a place where my team felt

Bernice, one of our dental hygienists, is having her first baby, a little girl due at the beginning of September. A few months later, in November, our scheduling coordinator, Joanna, will be welcoming her second child into the world. As you might expect, it’s a bit hectic having two crucial members of our team with babies on the way, but we couldn’t be more excited for them. Bernice and Joanna will both be out for a few months after delivery, but we’re planning ahead to ensure we’re able to manage without them for a while. Other staff members are training to cover for them so they can take the time off that they need to have a baby, recover, and come back to work when they’re ready. Four years ago, I threw a baby shower for Janice, and I learned that they are more fun than I thought. I didn’t realize there were so many baby shower games to play! For Bernice and Joanna, we’re going to take advantage of the nice San Diego weather to hang out and play some games. I have also arranged to have food catered and for a professional photographer to be there taking lots of pictures. Our last big office party was our Christmas party back in December. The Casino Royale made for a fun event, but this group always has fun together. I’m happy to have another reason for us hang out outside of work. It is a special thing to work with people I feel so close to. I don’t have kids, so I really admire these women. When they have kids, they start to put their child’s needs over their own wants. That’s a huge sacrifice to

like an extension of my family. We have a lot of fun together, we work hard to take care of our patients, and we’re always ready to celebrate

each other’s triumphs and offer support. This month, I’m reminded of all the wonderful things we have to celebrate, and I’m excited for what the future will bring.
