When you think about it, from Monday through Friday, one-third of our lives are spent at the workplace (and that doesn’t include travel or lunch.)
At Oral and Facial Surgery Center, our team not only strives to create the best surgical experience possible for every patient, but we also surround ourselves with individuals who understand the importance of making the work place rewarding. Quantity time at the work place is a given; however, creating a quality environment takes mutual respect and appreciation for what each individual brings to the collective personality.
Having grown up the sixth born of seven children (each just one year apart), my family had a motley assortment of personalities. From neat freaks to book geeks, from ultra picky to nit-picky, from feisty to shy, from sensitive to bold – we had them all! To our great advantage, we had to learn to get along, to appreciate our different personalities and to experience the consequences of selfish, unforgiving behavior if we didn’t. The harmony within our family unit was reflected outward, and positive comments from others about us were a regular occurrence. My life in a large family was a small taste of life at work. It taught me that anywhere groups of people share portions of their lives, there is also the challenge of dealing with one another’s weaknesses and enjoying the benefits of one another’s strengths.
I have a great respect and appreciation for the doctors and staff of Oral & Facial Surgery Center. OFSC’s patient surveys prove repeatedly that patients experience the joyful, professional collective personality of our team as a whole but also see for themselves how each member of the OFSC team is what makes it that way.
