My Friend, Molly | Dente Complete Dentistry

My Friend, Molly

I’ve known Molly almost my entire life. Her father worked with my dad, for as long as I can remember.

Ever since we were kids, Molly walked with a limp. She was born with bilateral hip dysplasia. Basically, her hip joint was not in the hip socket.

The doctors tried everything to get her hips back in place and nothing corrected her disability.

With years of walking with a limp, Molly developed severe scoliosis, basically curvature of the spine.

Molly has always been a fighter and has overcome loads of obstacles. She grew up in the Uptown neighborhood, and generally, kids from that neighborhood did not end up in the selective enrollment high schools.

Molly, being the smarty she is, got into Lane, a rare feat, for that neighborhood. Then Molly got into a great university.

Because Molly spent so many hundreds of hours at the doctors’ offices and hospitals, she began to appreciate the healthcare field, and decided she wanted to become a nurse.

Molly took all of her required classes to get into the nursing program and, of course, did well in her classes.

When she applied to the nursing program at her school, the dean of the nursing school, tried to talk her out of nursing school. She kept emphasizing how nursing was a physically challenging job.

She never actually said that Molly shouldn’t go to nursing school because she has a disability, but that’s what it seemed like.

Molly eventually convinced the dean that she needed to accept her into the nursing program.

Molly excelled in the program and has been working as a nurse for over 30 years.

I’ve heard Molly speak on her journey several times. She uses her story to motivate people to pursue their dreams.

In honor of Nurses Week, I wanted to share my personal connection to an amazing person and nurse.

Emilio “Nurses Rock” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
