Bon Voyage and Happy Retirement, Lisa

Lisa

Bon Voyage, Lisa

The end of an era – Lisa is retiring.  We took over the practice in 1990 following the unexpected passing of its founder, Dr. Jim Ryan.  At the time, we knew it would be important to keep the staff to provide continuity to the patients. We were fortunate that all staff members, including Lisa, decided to stay on and give the new guy a shot. With the help of that original staff, Lisa, Joyce, Jeannie, and Sharon (and, of course, Susan, who came with me), we were introduced to patients and we were able to accomplish a smooth transition into the practice.  Over 27 years and several moves of the office, Lisa has been with us, offering wonderful, compassionate, and professional care to our patients. While we wish her well as she enters this new phase, we will definitely miss her smiling face in the office and we know her patients will, too.

2016 ADA Conference in Denver, CO

2016 ADA Convention, Denver, Colorado

2016 ADA Conference

The American Dental Association held its annual meeting in Denver this year. Unfortunately, Carla and I were out of town on a long planned vacation.  However, our wonderful staff represented our office well.

We always learn a lot at dental conferences and make a point of trying to attend those that are close to Colorado Springs.  This year, staff attended lectures on dental procedures and trends.  They also visited tables of dental vendors and saw the latest in dental equipment and supplies.  And, they were fortunate to hear key note speaker Malala Yousafzai, winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. https://www.nobelprize.org/…/laur…/2014/yousafzai-facts.html

 

Dental Convention – 2016 Rocky Mountain Mid-Winter Dental Convention

2016 Mid-Winter Dental Convention

Attending the Rocky Mountain Dental Convention is something my staff and I try to do each year.  This year’s convention, affectionately known as the 2016 Mid-Winter Dental Convention, took place last Thursday and Friday in Denver.  We were fortunate that the entire staff was able to attend.  The convention draws dental professionals from all over the state as well as from neighboring states.  It provides opportunities to attend lectures, view exhibits of the latest products and equipment, and to network with other providers.  We have recently added a diode laser to our array of treatment options.  One of the best sessions my hygienists and I  attended was an informative lecture on the use of lasers for periodontal treatment.   It was a fun and productive two days for everyone.

Welcome, Judy!

2015 COMOM Clinic, Canyon City

Dr. Albers works on a patient at the 2015 COMOM Dental ClinicOnce a year, Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM), “provides quality dental services, at no cost, to individuals of all ages who cannot afford and access dental care; eliminating dental pain, promoting oral health, creating smiles, and providing oral health education.”  See http://comom.org/.  This year, Susan, Jane and I traveled to Canon City on August 14 to see patients, and Jane and I returned on the 15th.  Many patients received care who otherwise could not afford it.  A worthwhile weekend for those of us who went.
