Leap Year!

By jameson / February 23, 2016 /

I’ve always been intrigued by Leap Year. First of all, I am amazed at the science behind our calendar. In high school we took measurements of the moon and the Sun’s position every day and calculated orbits and how they were used to develop our current understanding of days, months and years. But we had…

Set a Good Example!

By jameson / February 1, 2016 /

Several years ago there was a commercial on TV depicting a child and his Dad. The cute little boy followed his father around and copied everything the man did. At the end, the Dad lit up a cigarette and the anti-smoking message played. I thought about this commercial after reading an article about things that…

Don’t You Just Hate Cancer?

By jameson / January 4, 2016 /

When I was 12, my mother died of cancer. Since then, I have had two step-mothers die of cancer. I lost a very dear friend to pancreatic cancer, and several other friends have passed away throughout the years with various forms of this disease. But, not every story about cancer ends in sadness. My sister-in-law…

I’m a Deer Hunter!

By jameson / November 30, 2015 /

I have been a hunter since my early teens. I’m not what I would call an avid hunter.   I enjoy it, but I don’t feel defined by what I shoot or even if I shoot. I have never left the state on a big game trip. I don’t need to spend hours scouting the woods.…

That’s So Scary!

Its Halloween week and everyone is getting excited about costumes, treats and pranks. Scaring someone this time of year is a goal of a lot of people. I tend to enjoy scaring people any time. My favorite is to sneak up behind someone and be standing there when they turn around. Unfortunately, my profession scares…

And the Beat Goes On…

By jameson / October 6, 2015 /

This billboard top ten hit from 1967 by Sonny and Cher came to mind while thinking about this blog. It was classic 60’s mentality. Life changes and we really can’t do much about it. It’s better to accept and embrace what life brings you. Fighting it or worrying about it almost never makes a difference.…

Diane Weatherhead RDH

By jameson / August 24, 2015 /

On September 1, 1988 Diane Weatherhead began working as my hygienist. I knew she was smart, personable and qualified. What I didn’t know is that together we would develop a small, struggling dental practice into a health care team of dedicated, knowledgeable individuals working together to create a friendly, trusting atmosphere where patients could have…

Hi, I’m Bruce and I’m a Diabetic!

By jameson / July 20, 2015 /

On May 29, 2015 my doctor informed me that I am now a type 2 diabetic. This means that my body is having trouble breaking down glucose. Glucose is a sugar that is formed from the foods we eat. The glucose is what gives our body energy to work and function. However, to break down…

Change is inevitable, but we don’t have to like it!

By jameson / June 22, 2015 /

Last year I celebrated 30 years in dentistry.  I take pride in what my practice has become over those three decades.  A large part of that pride is in the teams I have assembled over the years.  I have learned that you can only be as good as those around you.  In my case, I…
