|Folks from each Big Ten school were there at the picnic... Kind of like above :)|
The new patient had heard that we had extended hours and was hoping we would be open on Saturday. I told her that we didn't have regular Saturday hours yet and she said that she didn't mean to bother me and that she would put some wax on her tooth until Monday. She's such a sweet lady but of course that was not an acceptable solution for me at all and I told her I would be happy to meet her later in the afternoon to take care of her issue.
A couple hours later we met at the office and I was very glad we did. She had broken a crown which exposed the nerve and I could see how she would be in pain. I was able to cover and protect the tooth and schedule her for more definitive work on Monday. We were both happy that she would be out of pain for the rest of the weekend.
All in all, it was a great weekend and I think that is what being available is all about! I love what I do and I think a big part of doing it well is being there when people need you the most. Fisher & Addison Dental is here for you!
