Last week I had the experience that not many of us look forward to: a dental visit that required drilling and filling.


I found myself fighting to stay awake while my dentist worked.

No, there wasn’t a sedative.

I was actually that relaxed.

Because I knew that I was in extremely capable, expert hands, those of a professional who made superior care the hallmark of his dental practice, and who knows me as his patient.

Would your customers say the same of you?

That you bring superior care and attention to their challenges and that you respond knowing the specifics of their situations?

Would they rest easy knowing that you were the one addressing their problem?
