With Thanksgiving soon to be upon us, it is time for me to identify the thinks I am grateful for.
Someone recently said that I have the coolest job in dentistry. I get to protect dentists, who constitute the nicest group of people I have ever met, from those who have decided that stealing money is preferable to earning it. This work is both important and meaningful.
Because of what we do, when dentists approach us it is often at a fairly dark time in their careers. There are few things more upsetting than having a suspicion that a trusted staff member is stealing.
We endeavor to meet these concerned dentists in a way that is kind, empathetic, and not the least bit judgmental. By assuming the burden of resolving their uncertainty, we help them return to productivity. For us, this is a tremendously satisfying activity.
I am also lucky to have an amazing group of colleagues. From our management team to our cadre of fraud examiners to our admin team, our people undertake challenging work with enthusiasm and professionalism, and I am appreciative of their immense contribution to our reputation and success.
Most of all, I am grateful to have a job where, every morning, I wake up and can’t wait to go to work. Thank you, colleagues, clients, and the dental profession. I really am the luckiest guy in the world!
