I am about to make a confession. Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by farms. I come from generation of hard working farmers whose children went on to become Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers,…Continue

I personally, as a hygienist, do not get to see the wonderful world of prosthodontics as do the assistants and dentist. We only see the result, in our patients mouth when we do a prophylaxis and…Continue

I am not technologically inclined. If it wasn't for spell check, a lot of my remarks and I know there are a lot of them, would not be spelled correctly. That can be blamed on six years of…Continue

Building value?

I want to just make a few succinct  comments on that blog post.


  Number one, with our schedules it is not always possible to follow through with the patient to the front desk. We are practioners as is the dentist but for the most part, we don't have anyone to set up for our next patient.


   Number two, we have carried the burden of the practice long enough. It is a team effort which includes the front desk personnel who should have the ability to "pick up the…

I pull up my favorite site and I see bobbleheads again. I want to see the smiling and dedicated faces of my fellow professionals..I am throwing down a challenge. Maybe Kevin can make it the next weekend contest. Contests seem to stir up too much animosity lately so this is a friendly challenge. If I can do it, so can you! Get your children to help..

Please, Doctors, do share if you have been using this therapy in your practices. This is fascinating stuff but does it work consistently?

Perio athogens in man's best buddies

I have a champion cairn terrier that got me into very meticulous care of his teeth early on. I have carried on this tradition to all my animals. The benefits are animals who have never needed to have their teeth cleaned, have never been ill, obviously no periodontal issues which could be very serious in a small body. My oldest cat is fifteen and she has all her teeth, even the mandibular incisors. Another great benefit is my ability to use that fact when a parent tells me that… Continue

I'm not sure I'd want to be in Vermont right now . . . but I do miss the snow sometimes. I live in Atlanta but I'm originally from New Jersey.

What kind of dogs do you have? I have three miniature dachshunds and they are very loud!

Thanks so much for the kind comment. Where do you live Mary Jane? It's mighty cold in Atlanta today and we're not used to such brutal weather. I just returned from a business trip in the Seattle area and am now writing about my experiences with Perioscopy so stay tuned!

Enjoy your "wine." I'm actually a white wine person but I only saw red. But I'll think of you when I sip it next time. Hope your year is off to a great start!

What a beautiful prayer Mary Jane! The beauty is recognizing that on a daily basis you are aware of the transformation of becoming The Woman Your Were Always Meant To Be.
Bravo to you My Dear Friend!

Mary Jane, I do remember our previous conversations and I also know that you have made some very supportive comments regarding Steve Knight and Crown Seating. I am now working with him to explore the possibiities of marketing for dental hygienists. It is very refreshing to be working with someone that actually sees and respects hygienists as professionals.
