Patient Praise

"My experiences have always been positive at your facility. I appreciate the professionalism and the friendliness of the staff. Kuddos to you all..."

"As always punctual, easy, friendly, and professional."

"I've never been to a doctor's office quite like this one. Everyone is extremely friendly, and they even have a desk set up with the Internet that you can play around on while you wait. During my first visit, they gave me a tour of the entire office. I honestly feel like a VIP every time I go there! Such a modern, fun place! Never thought I'd say fun and dentist in the same sentence!"

"Dr. Deems is a five star dentist and he sees to it that his work and his staff's work is of like quality. The patient is made feel more like a friend than as a patient. I can't praise them enough."

“Unsick Days” Encouraged For Preventive Health Visits

One of the disturbing trends in recent years has been the number of people feeling like they can’t – and therefore don’t – take time off from work for preventive health visits, both medical AND dental. At first, I thought that this was merely an economic concern, since the economy has not given most people a sense of stability for many years now.

The Washington Post (10/13, Marks) states that a healthcare scheduling service called Zocdoc is encouraging employers to schedule a paid day off for employees each year so they can visit their physician and dentist. According to the article, the “idea seems to be catching on,” and the initiative even has its own website.

CBS News (10/12, Marcus) reported that Zocdoc’s initiative aims to encourage employers to help make it simpler for employees to have their preventive health appointments. In conjunction with launching their campaign this week, Zocdoc also released findings from a survey that shows “3 out of 5 (60 percent) of American workers feel uncomfortable leaving work for preventive care appointments.” The study shows “the cultural conflicts between work and health,” said Zocdoc vice president of communications Jessica Aptman. “There’s this psychological cultural barrier of people feeling like they can’t get away and leave their desk.”

An online video on the Wall Street Journal (10/11, Subscription Publication) website features Zocdoc CEO Oliver Kharraz discussing the initiative.
