What I love best about this job…

…is the people I meet.
James Hamill of Blueapple Dental in Northern Ireland sent a photograph over the weekend.
and the smiles on the faces of myself and Sonya in the photo represent the culmination of a productive day in practice and a 3-year vision that is helping them become one of the most successful practices in the country.
We should look tired – I had arrived the afternoon previous and, after a dash from Belfast to Belcoo, presented to their Study Club of referring dentists until after 22:30 – then, after a brief night’s sleep, took part in a long and detailed conversation encompassing all aspects of their business.
But it’s just a pleasure to work with James and Sonya and to be a small catalyst in their evolution.
I love my job!
