Just over two years ago, I began a process to get a dental accreditation with the AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry).
Just then, the pandemic happened, everything slowed down and my focus changed. I was just trying to survive and keep the office open.
We had a million bumps in the road and concentrating on that goal was difficult.
I have now restarted my accreditation process. I will need to take a written exam. Then I will need to present 6 specific cases and finally a verbal exam from a panel of examiners.
At the end of this month, I will be attending an AACD conference. This will be my first time back since before the pandemic closures happened.
Getting back on track has been on my mind for a while now. The hardest part of this or any goal, is getting started.
We see this in dentistry all the time.
Some of the reasons why people fall off their routine of going to the dentist are: People that have moved, gotten a new job, work that got busy, the pandemic, or being anxious about going to the dentist.
Before you know it, years have passed. This happens to all of us.
The hardest part is picking up the phone and making that initial call to schedule an appointment.
Once you get here, it gets easier. One step at a time, and before you know it… you are a regularly scheduled dental patient.
Now is the time to get started. Visit us at mydente.com or call 773-292-1911 to schedule your appointment today! See you soon.
