Sat’s Review of 2018
It’s been fair to say it has been a tough year, following the tragic loss of dad in June. Life has been a whirlwind since then and I can’t believe it has been 6 months already. This has flown by for me, whilst I have been trying to get things sorted.
However I know for mum it has dragged. Christmas will be a strange and difficult time but thankfully the children will provide a welcome antidote to the blues. Aren’t children amazing? Their ability to heal and remind us of the simple pleasures of life, the innocence of what used to be special, is so therapeutic.
I have been floored by the warmth of friends, colleagues and relatives who have provided invaluable support and comfort so openly and freely.
Our own Emma has had her own health challenges this year and we applaud her courage whilst wishing her a full recovery.
The practice has continued to flourish, thanks to my incredible team and patients. We have now introduced the exciting world of digital dentistry this year to help to continue to provide a gentler and kinder experience for our patients. This provides us with additional techniques to aid us with our goal of providing calm, caring and painfree dentistry. This latest technology and innovation allows us to be far more precise with the work we produce. On some occasions our patients can now see results before they commit to life changing dentistry. This can only be a positive experience for all concerned.
Michelle has continued to improve her skill set and after her latest course can now remove sutures. Her search for continued improvement and excellence is an inspiration to us all.
We have welcomed Danielle in to the fold, her experience has made our lives a lot easier, so thank you Danielle. Also welcomed Maddy and Lucy to the team.
Sean continues to build his straight teeth knowledge and skills and is now teaching the subject and passing on his experience to other dentists nationally.
Dawne was recognised with a long service award.
Congratulations to Balinder on the safe arrival of her baby girl.
Paula has assumed the concierge role in the practice and will look to develop this further over the coming year. This will be another service we will be offering to our patients, so that their dental journey with us is a smoother one.
Back in May some of the team completed Rough Runner and they all survived!! Thank you to our patients for your continued charity support.
Finally, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and joyful New Year.
