We have a great staff and I'm very pleased to be working with the staff that I have now, probably one of the best staffs that I've ever had in the 30-some years that I've been practicing dentistry. I've got my daughter who's working for me as a dental hygienist and office manager, and she's just wonderful interacting with people. My mother-in-law works in the practice so when we say we're a family practice, we truly mean we are a family practice.
My daughter-in-law-to-be works with us also, and then the rest of our employees are just, they're becoming family. They're like a part of the family, really. And so, the atmosphere: everybody is friendly, everybody gets along with everybody, there's no infighting between the staff. They interact well with the patients and really make an effort to get to know the patients and leave—give great service, great service.
