I like my morning coffee. My daughter left a coffee cup at our house about 6 years ago and I really like the large size and large handle for my big hand. I always knew the coffee cup design and message but thought about its significance this morning while thinking about an upcoming presentation to dentists on Strategic Planning: Dreaming, Vision, Value clarification, and setting Standards. The cup is a Thomas Kincaid design and has the biblical message from Matthew’s Sermon on the Mount: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” He certainly was not thinking about dental practice, but more heavenly matters.
In life or in the dental office -if we think about how much money we can acquire (or the next party), that defines a distinct value. If we think about being of service to our patients (fellow man and woman) and providing an extraordinary experience at every encounter, we have defined a quite different value system.
It is our strong desire to provide the highest quality in cosmetic and restorative dental care, to be on time every day, to provide more value than expected at a fair price, and to create a friendly and inviting home for every patient. We seek to be the dental office that reflects those values we embrace.
