In the last couple weeks, baseball fans experienced one of the most epic sports championships.
Whether or not you were a Cleveland or Chicago fan, the 2016 World Series will go down in history as one of the most thrilling seven games in baseball.
After 108 years of waiting, Cub fans were finally able to bask in the thrill of victory. However, game seven was enough to give even the most die-hard fans a heart attack. Aside from blowing a three-run lead late in the game, the Cubs had to test fate one more time, winding up in extra innings – with a rain delay. But we all know how the story ends.
Aside from the 108 year wait, the win also carried out another historical feat.
The Cubs became the first team to rally from a three-games-to-one Series deficit since Kansas City did so in 1985 and the first to do it on the road since Pittsburgh in 1979.
It truly was a team effort… and we couldn’t be more proud.
Teamwork is the key to success — in sports, life and even at the dental office.
At Lake Co. Dental, we our team is focused on giving our patients the best possible care and outcomes.
Dental assistants help with sterilizing instruments and equipment, taking and developing x-rays, taking impressions, and preparing and guiding patients throughout their procedures.
The dental hygienist is more involved and responsible for patient care – and they are the first line in prevention and education about maintaining and improving oral health. Hygienists clean teeth, examine patients for signs of diseases such as periodontal disease, gingivitis and cancer, and provide preventative dental care under the supervision of the dentist.
Dental Laboratory Technicians
Dentists work with dental technicians to manufacture dental prosthetics, such as bridges, crowns and dentures in accordance with their specifications. There are four disciplines in dental technology including fixed prosthesis, removable prosthesis, maxillofacial prosthesis, and orthodontics and auxiliaries.
The office manager oversees the daily operations of the dental practice. They help set schedules, train staff and assess their performance, plus they know the ins and outs of the financials, ordering and purchasing. They run the business side of the practice so that the dentist can focus on what’s important — taking care of patients.
Front Desk, Receptionist or Patient Care Coordinator
These people are the face of the practice and most often the ones who greet you with a friendly smile or hello as soon as you walk through the doors. They are multi-skilled and can handle accounting, scheduling appointments as well as billing patients and insurance companies.
Is your dental team working for you?
Has your dentist:
> Jeopardized your health or made you feel uncomfortable?
> Provided a diagnosis and treatment plan without explaining why he selected that particular course?
> Given you a hard time for wanting to seek a second opinion, especially for a complicated procedure?
> Been unprofessional or rude (including his staff)?
> Made you feel rushed or that your questions weren’t important?
> Disrespected your time by making you wait?
Depending on how you answered those questions, you just might need to find a new dental team.
