Independence Day? Maybe so or maybe not…..

Today in the United States we are celebrating Independence Day – the anniversary of the day we declared our independence from the British in 1776.
The British did not invade us again until December 17th, 1963, the day that 15 year-old Marsha Albert from Silver Spring, MD finally convinced a local DJ to play The Beatles’ “I Want To Hold Your Hand” on the radio. WWDC’s telephone lines lit up like never before, and the rest of the second “British Invasion” is history!
But that’s another story for another day.In the US, today is the day that we celebrate by watching fireworks, drinking domestic beer, singing the National Anthem off-key, and hopefully remembering that many brave people fought a horrible and bloody war so that we could have our freedom.

And so far it’s worked out really well! Same goes for our Canadian friends (July 1st), our Mexican buddies (September 16th), those wild and crazy Sri Lankans (February 4th) and billions more across the globe. So on this July 4th, relax, watch some Chinese fireworks, and don’t forget to honor our independence and those who made it happen.

But how about your dental practice? Have you declared independence? If you are not sure – ask yourself this question.Is there anything about my practice that makes me unhappy?

If you’re like most dentists, chances are you said “yes.” So what is it? A crazy patient or two? Saturday hours? Some insurance plan you hate? A bad apple team member? Not enough income? Something else?

Hey you! Today is Independence Day!! Make this the day you figure out what is making you unhappy, and come up with a plan to get rid of it!! After all, it’s a free country!!
