All the floss that's fit to print...

Best of the Bay, a San Francisco Bay Area television show (seen on local NBC affiliate station, KRON Chanel 4) that spotlights local businesses, just nominated me as the Best Cosmetic Dentist in San Francisco. Well, more precisely, I am the nominee for the best cosmetic dentist in following neighborhoods: financial district, SOMA, Marina, and Pacific Heights.

First of all, it’s really a true honor to be recognized for one’s efforts, whatever they may be. Ever since treating my first patient in dental school, I have always done everything within my capabilities to ensure patient satisfaction. The priority is of course on clinical proficiency but, after treating patients for a decade now, in order to provide holistic oral health care, I strongly believe that a doctor-patient relationship built upon education and trust is crucial. I reiterate this to my patients and staff often, and I certainly try to practice what I preach. ¬†And so, it’s humbling to receive positive feedback for my work, which I presume is ultimately an acknowledgment of my practice philosophy.

Finally, as with most accomplishments, this was a team effort. Thanks, Bernadette, Jennifer, and Dr. Volfson! Definitely couldn’t do it without you…
