Experience has been an artful and invaluable tutor. However, throughout my tenure in practice, there are constants that contribute to delivering quality care: Be kind, gentle, careful and caring, because there is a patient attached to every tooth.
There are 2 things that I can control in my practice: the music and patient comfort. I have been playing piano since the age of 5, was offered admission to Juilliard, but did not attend. My lovely, elderly Scottish piano teacher told me to give up sports and girls and practice 4hours a day...so, it was a no brainer. I played many instruments in many groups from HS onward. I even joined Local 802, the famous Musician's Union of Greater New York. I may have played at your wedding. I also recently played a few gigs and worked with Chubby Checker and Charlie Gracie. I try to get a few tunes in a day, at home, and one of my guitars is always available, in my office. Speaking of passions, I am also the Sports Director at WIMG Radio. I cover the Phils, Yanks and the Trenton Thunder. It is an avocation that truly is a "labor of love"...(no pay), but I take it very seriously and spend quality time forging relationships with the athletes. That's what it's all about. Our Stellar Award Winning Station works hard to provide "good things", spiritual and actual, for our listeners and the city of Trenton. Moving on tor exceptionally important things: I believe that my patients are the only priority in my practice. It is gratifying to hear that I was able to help in any way...from performing Endodontics or removing a wedged seed that was causing nagging discomfort. It's my job and obligation to be dedicated to that. I will always do my best to make the office visit as comfortable, pleasant and entertaining as permitted. There are people (who need to get a life) who actually said that they enjoyed their time with us, were glad they came and the experience was wonderful. Take that all with a grain of salt. If you really want to tell me how it went, you can often find me after hours, at the Starbucks Marketfair, relaxing and attempting to solve the problems of the world.
