Recently, I had a dental appointment. My dentist got me numb with bilateral mandibular blocks. For four hours, no tongue or lower lip.
I had two gold crowns removed that I was never aware were a problem. It turned out that one had some heretofore unknown decay. Both were on an energy meridian on which I’ve been having some health issues.
There were two lessons I took from that day. First, I was thankful to know and trust a dentist who would take great care of me. (Thank you, Dr. Jimmy Clarke!) Then another thankful feeling became beautifully and blessedly clear: My wonderful staff and I are blessed to be the dental team that you give your trust to.
Wow! What an honor! What a compliment! What an opportunity we have to make a positive difference in the lives of people we come to love!
Joanne (speaking of blessings) and I have been at this for 40 years now. Because of you and your trust, we love what we do, and we intend to keep doing it. We are committed to supporting other dentists locally through mentoring. Because of my participation with the International Academy of Biological Dentistry, we are supporting and teaching dentists internationally to become knowledgeable participants in the practice of biological dentistry.
My inspiration? Each and every one of you. You have supported me in doing more and being more than I ever imagined. Through your inspiration, your support and your presence, you have thanked me.
And I humbly and respectfully thank you – and wish you a joyful Christmas and very happy start to the new year!
