Playing With Dolls | Dente Complete Dentistry

Playing With Dolls

The most AMAZING invention in the 21st century has been Elf on the Shelf. The inventors of this Elf doll, in my opinion, should win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Here’s the deal… you buy this stuffed Elf, the size of a children’s doll. Then immediately after Thanksgiving, this magical elf all of a sudden appears in your house. This elf will randomly appear in your house in different locations.

His job is to observe all behavior in the house and report back to Santa, all good and bad behavior.

Now let me fill you in on a seven year old’s behavior. They are opposed to ANYTHING that their parents ask of them.

Go take a shower…No!

Go do your homework…No!

Clean up your toys…No!

It’s a constant battle to get him to do anything. He will never do anything upon the first request. It’s “I’ll do it later.”

Finn has named his Elf, Buddy.

Now when I ask Finn to take a shower, it goes like this:

“Finn go take a shower.” … “NO!”

Then I begin to yell, “Oh Buddy, Finn doesn’t want to take a shower.”

Then Finn responds, “Dad, Dad. No, I’ll take a shower. Please don’t tell Buddy. I’ll take a shower.”

In my day, I just got the belt. This is definitely way more effective. Having a direct line of communication to Santa Claus is definitely the way to get things done.

Communication is definitely the key to getting things done.

At Dente, we have an open line of communication. We try to address any questions about finances, treatment, timing of treatment and other questions on their mind.

Every patient can have direct access to my personal cell phone number. Most days I will get a text from a patient asking a dental question.

I love this type of access my patients have with our office. It forms a deep connection with Dente and our patients.

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.”
