In less than 2 weeks the year will be over. The holidays will be behind us and the only thing to look forward to will be Ground Hog’s Day. A day where we will blame a rodent for the never ending blahs of winter in the Midwest.
So, before that post-holiday depression sets in, let’s celebrate 2017 one more time. Our office had many events worth rejoicing over. Our hygienist Jenn and our assistant Melissa both had babies. It was the second child for both. Jenn had a girl and Melissa had a boy. Both are back to work and trying to keep that balance between home and work. We are happy for both of them and also overjoyed to have them back at work.
We welcomed two new employees to our team in 2017. Lyndsey came to us as an assistant to fill in while Melissa was on leave. We loved her so much we found a way to keep her on part time. Now she is pregnant with her first child. We are excited for her and wish her the very best as she starts her new family chapter. Hopefully we fit into her life in the future.
Kelly came in to shadow and help out one day and made a great impression. When we had a hygiene spot open up we called and added her to our team. She has stepped in and is doing a great job. We are lucky to have her.
Brittney was an assistant with us for 9 years and left to pursue other interests. We were excited and proud to have her rejoin us after almost 4 years away. She is a part time assistant and blending in like she never left.
Melissa and Heather both celebrated a 10 year anniversary with us this fall. It is a great source of pride for our practice to have employees stay for long careers. In addition to Heather and Melissa blessing us for over ten years we’ve had Judy for over 17 years and Rachel and Carrie for over 23 years each. These are the people that keep our practice moving forward.
Last week we celebrated the one year anniversary for Kristen. She has been a tremendous addition to our team. In one short year she has taken over the scheduling and become a valuable asset in our marketing department. We are glad she finally joined our team.
Finally, we would like to recognize the team members who just showed up every day and made your visit easier and more pleasant. Thanks Jessica, Stacy and Sara.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
