HAPPY NEW YEAR 2022 from your Kleinheinz Dentistry team!
Like all of you, we’re looking forward to the hope and promise that 2022 brings! The New Year has always been a time of both reflection of the past year and optimism about a new year. And, we feel the same way as a team here at Kleinheinz Dentistry…
2021 marks the second year in our beautiful, state-of-the-art new office space. We love the new sterilization center, larger lab for our technology, and rooms to grow. We’ve standardized the increased safety protocols in the office. In January, Lauren (dental assistant) welcomed her first baby into the world. In March, Emma (dental assistant) welcomed a second baby girl into her family and decided to leave Kleinheinz Dentistry in order to be full time with her daughters. In the fall, Jennie joined our team as a Front Desk Admin/Insurance Coordinator. Jennie brings 23 years of experience in the dental field with her; we’re delighted to have her! Our team continues to provide timely, quality care. Check out our Facebook/Instagram page in the new year as we post a “Get to Know Us” about each teammate!
In 2021, we improved our referral rewards/patient appreciation program. Our contest prizes included a Ballantyne Resort Spa Massage, a Yeti Cooler, an Apple Watch, and a collection of Yeti drinkware! Referring patients and our Patients of the Month won gift cards to Amazon, Starbucks, Autobell, and Chick-fil-A! We’re very excited about some incredible contests in 2022- we appreciate our amazing patients and your referrals! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with contest dates.
Looking forward to 2022, let’s focus on preventative oral health together! Did you know that you only need to floss the teeth that you want to save? All joking aside… flossing removes bacteria (not just food particles) that sit below the gum line. If you do not floss, this bacteria is left below the gum tissue where it causes inflammation and ultimately can result in bone loss, cavities, and abscesses. Flossing for one minute per day could prevent unwanted dental procedures! And, here at Kleinheinz Dentistry, we expanded our schedule to help provide timely preventative care.
We get it though- introducing a new habit is difficult! I read The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do by Charles Duhigg. In this book, Duhigg talks about creating a Cue, Habit, Reward circuit that is reliable and consistent. Looking forward to the new year, this book has me reflecting on my habits and how I can make permanent changes… could yours be daily flossing..??
