Tennis Practice

Last week Finn was at the park and was watching a group of adults playing tennis.

His babysitter said he was watching them play for an hour.

When he came back home, he told me he wanted to buy a tennis racket and wanted to learn how to play.

I agreed I would take him.

For the next few days, he kept reminding that I agreed to take him.

This weekend, we bought him a tennis racket and has been playing for hours hitting the balls against the garage door.

He has made a dramatic improvement since he began to play. At first he was hitting the balls over the house now he’s volleying for 3 to 4 times.

He has gone to the park with Sarah and played with her.

He gets really frustrated that he is not great at it instantaneously. He’s very impatient.

Sarah and I have been reminding him that whatever he does, he will need to work really hard and consistently to get really good at it. It takes time and practice.

This year will be my twentieth year since I graduated from the University of Iowa Dental School.

I remember when I first started dentistry, I would be exhausted after a day of work. I saw maybe 3 patients in that day. It required a massive amount of concentration with any procedure that I did.

Now I see 7 times that amount of patients in a day, and the level of energy that I expend is less.

It all has to do with experience.

Doing something for 20 years, creates a level of predictability and accuracy. Doing the same thing over and over again creates efficiency.

The patient feels it when they are in the chair.

Almost on a daily basis I hear, “Wow, I can tell you guys have been doing this for a while.”

People can feel certainty and confidence. People can feel experience.

Emilio “Hit The Ball” 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.”
