I heard it suggested that Father’s Day is the forgotten holiday. I am not sure why this would be but I thought this would be a good time to say ‘Happy Father’s Day’ to our patients who are dads of any kind! Good to celebrate dads early and often 🙂
Many of you were lucky enough to meet my wonderful father while he was working in our office. For those of you who did not, you missed meeting an amazing man! He is kind, patient, hard working, loving and always available with a helping hand or a listening ear.
Some may think he encouraged me to go into dentistry but it was just the opposite! He wanted to be sure I chose a career path that was for me. At a young age, I was drawn to learning about what he did and wanted to be just like him. He cared for his patients so deeply and provided them excellent dental care. We could not go anywhere in my small hometown without running into a patient and sweet conversations followed. He had a loving staff that was with him almost his entire career. Thanks for being a great mentor and role model, Dad!
This photo was taken when I was in high school. My dad encouraged me to become a runner and we loved to run our annual hometown race, Run for the Diamonds, on Thanksgiving Day.
Happy Father’s Day!!
