THREE’S COMPANY Chatting With Lauren, Janae, and Taylor

each hygienist one-on-one, but if you are ever lucky enough to sit with all three of them at one time, you find yourself surrounded by the best sort of laughter. “I have never worked with so many people I like,” Taylor says when they all sit down to share stories. “I started here for an internship, and when I got my dental hygiene license, I knew this was where I wanted to stay. It’s a great work environment, and I love everyone here.”
“We’re not the best at that game,” Taylor admits. “We named our team ‘Average Josephines,’ though when it comes to cornhole, we might be below average. We wanted to make life a bit more exciting, so we

decided to start a podcast. We have a list of topics, and we’ve even interviewed Janae!”
“We have truly awesome patients,” Janae says. “They remember things about us. I have one patientwho’sbeenhereforyears,andshealways askshowI’mdoing.Ireallyloveitwhenapatient asksaboutmylittleboy,Mac,andIknowLauren and Taylor like it when people ask about their dogs.”

“There’s a big difference between ‘work friends’ and ‘real friends.’ When you spend time with Lauren, Janae, and Taylor, you can tell their friendship is true.”
“Skwish and Olive are doing very well,” Lauren confirms with a laugh, referring to her pugs.
“So are Bailey, Basil, and Bentley,” Taylor adds.
“Good, because you’re never allowed to leave us,” Lauren informs her with a teasing grin.

Sometimes dentists say, “My staff are all friends,” but there’s a big difference between “work friends” and “real friends.” When you spend time with Lauren, Janae, and Taylor, you can tell their friendship is true. Lauren and Taylor even started a podcast!
