This last Sunday was my mom’s 80th birthday. My sister organized a surprise birthday party for her.
My mom wanted to have the entire family with her for her birthday, but my sister told her that no one could attend her birthday. She told my mom that we all had prior commitments and would have to celebrate on a different day.
We did not tell my dad about the surprise because he would have spilled the beans in two seconds.
My mom was feeling super down because she thought no one wanted to celebrate her special day with her.
My sister said to her “Don’t worry mom. It will just be me and you. Forget about everyone else.”
My job was to pick up my dad, as soon as my mom got out of the house.
Once my mom got to the restaurant, 15 of us were there waiting to celebrate her birthday. All of her grandkids were there and some of our childhood friends came as well.
She was very surprised and very happy.
Being surprised for a birthday party is pretty fun but being surprised for your dental appointment … not so much.
We like to be upfront before each appointment. We like to give the patient all the details, as to what to expect. Both during and after the procedure.
We also like to give our patients the financial portion of the procedure. What they can expect to pay out of pocket at their appointment.
One of the biggest areas where people become upset in, is when any business transactions are surprises.
We always try to be transparent and giving the patient as much information as possible, before any treatment or business transaction begins. This is a great way to control unexpected surprises.
If you are looking for a dentist, that will not hide the information you need to hear, you have found it. Visit us at mydente.com or call 773-292-1911 to schedule an appointment today!
