THANK YOU, TEAM! Honoring My Dedicated Employees Each month, you humor me as I humbly brag about my girls, my growing family, and my pride in serving this country. It’s been an honor to share these stories with you and I cannot wait to share many more. (Thank you for reading!) This month though, I decided to do something different and recognize the team I’m proud to work with every day. It’s not easy to find employees who align with the goals and core values of your practice, but I believe we have assembled a group of hardworking individuals who epitomize my principles. I’m honored to admit that I hear multiple unsolicited compliments about their work every week, and it makes me proud to work alongside them. I would not be where I am today without their support, belief in our work and dedication to our team. Let’s start with the person who has been on our staff the longest. Our office manager, Allie, joined the team more than eight years ago, and she has been an invaluable asset to our team since day one. Allie is our fireball of energy who keeps our team positive and upbeat. Many of you know Allie for her welcoming demeanor and as the first person to greet you when you walk through our door. We always know who’s arriving because seconds after the front door chimes, we hear Allie’s booming, energetic voice welcoming patients to our office. I’m not surprised when a patient whose appointment ended 20 minutes ago is still chatting away with Allie out front. Next, I’d like to highlight Ginger, our dental hygienist. If you were to look up “team player” in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Ginger next to it. She is fiercely loyal to our team and has developed quite an army of very loyal patients. You can rely on Ginger to complete her work beyond what is expected, always going the extra mile for her patients. As a local, Ginger is also a big Washington Nationals and Washington Capitals fan. Needless to say, the past few years have been very exciting for her and our local fans!

My assistant, Chrissy, is also a local. She sits knee-to-knee with me as we treat patients, and working with her is like quiet worker who likes to focus on my tasks, and without having to be prompted, Chrissy always knows what I need, what instruments to give to me, and what the next step will be. She makes having an extension of myself. I’m a very

every treatment process seamless. Patients often comment about how well the procedure went when so few words were spoken.

Last but certainly far from least, Judy, our receptionist and newest member of the team, deserves some of the spotlight. You may recognize Judy by her Texas drawl and very polite way of saying “yes, sir” and “yes, ma’am.” Judy makes every patient feel welcome and treated with the utmost respect. It’s been fun having Judy around the office, especially since she and I have a few things in common. Judy recently became a grandmother again, and her son attended the Naval Academy. As a West Point graduate myself, I don’t hold it against her — I’m joking, of course — but we have plenty of war stories to swap. These four women make my practice stronger every day, and I could not fulfill my dreams without them. Thank you, Judy, Chrissy, Ginger, and Allie. I’m proud to be part of your team.
