I went to see one of my friend’s son’s hockey games. His son is 12 years old and has been playing for many years now.
My friend lives in the city and the game was in St. Charles. This was about an hour away from his house.
His son’s team is made up of kids from Chicago. Every kid and their parent show up.
These hockey parents were the most enthusiastic fans I’ve ever seen. They were yelling and jumping out of their seats.
It was a lot of fun to watch the game, but it was more fun to watch the parents. It was total emotion.
This game started at 10:00am on Sunday. Then the team were going back into the city to play another hockey game.
Many of these kids began playing very early in life. Once their kid learned how to walk, it was time for hockey.
These parents saw their kid’s potential, noticed their love for the sport and how it developed throughout the years.
The love these parents and their kids show for this sport is off the charts. They are completely committed.
Starting something from the beginning and watching it grow is very addictive.
I opened Dente in 2006 with zero patients. My first patient was my mom and I think she faked a tooth issue, so I could have a patient.
In the early days, I could roll a bowling ball down the Dente hallway and not hit a single person.
We grew the practice with sheer love. We took care of our patients, and our patients took care of us.
Many of our patients have been with us since our opening.
Our patients are no different than those cheering parents at my friend’s hockey game. Our best referral source is by far our patients.
Each and every month, our patients are our greatest supporters. And I cannot put into words how grateful I am for your support.
If you want to refer your friends and family, please send them our way. Have them visit us at mydente.com or call 773-292-1911 to schedule their appointment.
Floss like a madman!
