I want to tell you why I’m so excited about our upcoming move. At Advanced Dental we are all about giving our very best to each and every patient – one patient at a time. For years I’ve been dissatisfied because we have outgrown our current location. Because of that I feel like we’ve fallen short on delivering our very best to each patient. Space is limited, resources were unavailable, the waiting room cold in the winter.
In our new location, we will have everything we need in abundance to deliver on our mission: our best to each patient, one at a time. We will be expanding to 6 dental chairs with monitors in every operatory for patients to see images of their teeth, both from the digital x-rays and from the intraoral camera. There will be a dedicated sterilization area that, while visible to the patients, will be protected from traffic. We will have a private operatory for patients requiring extra privacy; sedation and implant patients, for example. The inside entrance will allow people to wait for loved ones in a comfortable setting with a coffee bar to treat themselves.
Beyond that, we will have more room for our staff. Our staff is like our family. They are the driving force of our practice. When our staff is happy, everyone is happy. We spend a lot of time thinking about our staff and how to tap into their creative energy. When we hit that sweet spot, we just stand back because there is no stopping them! I’ve rarely worked with a team of people so dedicated to their craft and their mission. Let me tell you, when that opportunity happens a wise person just thanks God and enjoys the ride. Treating our staff to a larger staff lounge (as opposed to the closet-sized one we have now), a private entrance, and the room to do what they do best – serve our patients – that is gratifying in the extreme!
We are just a few weeks away from our May 1st moving day and I am so thrilled it’s hard to concentrate. It’s been a long time since we’ve felt really satisfied with our location and it will be a dream come true.
