It’s the little wins that matter at The Dental Studio
Dr Martina Hodgson, the owner of The Dental Studio is no stranger to providing patients with exceptional dental care and a great smile but she doesn’t get much chance to let everyone know about her experiences. So in light of the brand new website, the team thought it would be a great idea for Dr Hodgson to write her first ever blog…
Dr Hodgson says: ‘’So I am sitting here staring at the flashing cursor wondering what I should write my first ever blog about. It seems like a momentous occasion and I am trying to think of something that will captivate and engage my audience.
I can’t help but have the feeling that I am one of very few people who actually find teeth really interesting! So instead of talking about root canals or how beautiful porcelain crowns are, I will talk about non tooth related moments that contribute to the love of my job, I like to call them, little wins as it’s those that make our days extra special at The Dental Studio.
Yesterday, a 7 year old boy came into the practice, we’ve seen him a lot over the past few years as he has numerous problems with his teeth. When he first came to visit us he was very shy and wouldn’t talk, but now he chats away and tells us all about his day. Ensuring that our patients, young and old feel comfortable in our dental practice, means the world to us! Little win.
When a patient is extremely nervous and they arrive at the practice upset and anxious, we are able to calm them down, reassure and speak to them about their requirements. They leave feeling happy and excited for their forthcoming dental treatment. Little win.
When someone comes in with teeth that require straightening, explaining that they bet we’ve never seen anything so bad before and they’re ashamed to smile. We explain what our teeth straightening procedures can do for them and they can’t wait to come back for their treatment. Little win.
We often see a patient transform over the course of their treatment from not smiling or talking, to feeling much more confident when they see their perfect smile, we can see their happiness shine through. Little win.
Straightening a bride’s teeth so they can smile on their wedding day. Little win.
When a patient arrives crying in pain and we successfully take their pain away. Little win.
I could go on, but at the end of the day the reason why our team of dentists and dental nurses love our job so much has absolutely nothing to do with teeth. It’s about the people. Plain and simple. We love our jobs because we enjoy helping people. And there’s nothing better in the world than making someone else smile and sometimes we make our patients cry tears of joy. This is a…BIG WIN!’’
