LETTER FROM THE CEO
I have had the pleasure of practicing dentistry for over 20 years – opening my first dental practice in 1997. Throughout my journey, I have learned that a successful business is about people and relationships. Relationships with my patients, watching them grow from children to having families of their own. Relationships with my team, understanding that great talent will attract, nurture and breed even greater talent.
As a leader, I have realized that we are only as good as those whom we surround ourselves with. I am a true believer that, “people work for people.” Through passion and vision, comes innovation, and for true success to be seen, a collaborative approach is necessary. An approach that is shared throughout our corporate culture and family of talent.
Our culture is unique and we are constantly seeking out opportunities to enhance people’s lives. Both internally and externally, we strive to help the world “Smile a Little More Everyday!”
