Last month we celebrated Dental Hygienist, Becky’s 30 Year Anniversary with Henderson Mill Dental Care. We appreciate her dedication to HMDC as she reached this milestone celebration of service. She is our third employee to reach the 30 year mark, which we believe is very special!
The 105th Annual Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting was held in Atlanta March 23rd to 25th at the Georgia World Congress Center. Staff and Doctors of Henderson Mill Dental Care attended various continuing education, lectures and social functions. Dr. Uetsuki and his wife, Melanie attended the keynote lecture on Thursday, which featured Dr. Sanjay Gupta as the guest speaker. Later that evening they both attended the annual General Chairman’s Reception honoring the 2017 Speakers and Hinman guests. The reception was held at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta.
Each year in February during dental health month Henderson Mill Dental Care representatives visit various local schools to help educate young students on the benefits of proper oral hygiene. As in years past, the schools were visited by either Becky or Izumi to teach students the importance of caring for their teeth, as well as proper techniques for brushing and flossing. They spend about 30 minutes with the students and make sure they have an understanding by engaging students with questions, props and sometimes a video. Our focus is on lower elementary students so they are able to develop an early foundation of good dental care. Each student leaves school with a goody bag, which this year included a pencil case, magnet, flossers, tooth brush and tooth paste.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life for every person we interact with on a daily basis. We are proud to share with you some of the feedback received from both new and long-term Henderson Mill Dental Care patients, in their words.
