Happy Halloween!

By jameson / October 30, 2016 /

I got to thinking about Halloween over the weekend. It is a very unique holiday.  How you view and celebrate depends on so many factors.  Your age is a big factor of course, but your community, your social group, your family background and even the weather factor in to how you will spend Halloween.  On…

The Why!

By jameson / July 28, 2016 /

Why would you want to work in peoples’ mouths? That is a question I hear a lot.  But the same type of question could be asked of anyone.  Why do we do what we do?  The answers vary from person to person.  For some, it’s what their dad or mother did.  For others it’s just…

Sometimes You Get More Than You Expect!

If you have read my blogs, you know that I take a lot of continuing education classes. I like to stay on top of new products, techniques and ways to make my practice better.  I am required to take an average of 20 hours a year to keep my license.  Since I average 50 hours…

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.…

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…

There’s No Place Like Home!

By jameson / December 29, 2014 /

Thirty years ago I arrived in Wayland as a 25 year old dentist fresh out of school. I had been to Wayland a couple times visiting my friend Dave Martin from college, but I didn’t know more than a couple people. I felt isolated, a little lonely and nervous about what the future held in…

What Comes Next?

By jameson / November 25, 2014 /

I’ve spent the last six months blogging about my first 30 years in dentistry. It’s been a long, wonderful journey and I’ve enjoyed reminiscing. But you can’t look back without also looking forward. If I’ve learned one thing over the last 30 years, it’s the fact that things will change. So what changes do I…

Growing and Learning

By jameson / September 24, 2014 /

Last month I talked about building a great dental team. Once I found the right people, I had to keep them motivated and challenged. I did this using education, rewards, trips and technology. Let’s start with the technology. I mentioned a couple blogs ago that I have always embraced new technology. If it made things…
