Why I Love Working at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry?
I started working with Doctor Lepore literally on the day of his open house and I came to him in a kind of a different way – I have been in dentistry quite a long time and I was kind of getting bored with it and working only part time in dentistry when a mutual friend of ours called me. It was a representative for a dental supply company and he said oh hey Kim I have this dentist that is going to be looking for an office manager and I said I don’t know if I really want to do that anymore especially at that level I am kind of finished with that, he said oh no no he is a really nice guy –young dentist who just bought a practice. I said oh absolutely not. Absolutely not, and he said well tell you what as a personal favor would you please just call him and I said alright I will call him so I did. Called him – had an interesting conversation and so I came up and I met with him and it was really nice to see his passion his enthusiasm for dentistry at the time where he wanted to take the practice then and I thought maybe I could give this another shot so I said yes and it has been a very interesting journey – he is taking this practice to a different level. The oral system connection is really interesting, fascinating. His desire to help people overall is encouraging to me, I love being a part of that. I have gotten very excited about dentistry again and I like that he is a nice guy and the team is amazing and I am really in a good place and I like that about this place.
Passionate Hygienists at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry
Being a hygienist, I’ve been in the dental field since I was 16, so a very long time. And one of the main things that I noticed before I started working here is, I started to just feel like I was on the treadmill, 8 – 5, cleaning teeth. And now that I’m here, I feel like I have a purpose. I feel like I have a belonging and it’s hard to find that purpose again in dentistry when you’ve been in it so long.
And the passion that I have for dentistry and the passion I have for the purpose and the vision that Dr. Lepore has is amazing. I wouldn’t trade this job for anything, and this isn’t just a job, this is my passion, this is what I do for a living. And when I go home at the end of the day, it doesn’t stop. I do research, I’m writing articles, I’m doing all kinds of things that will help not only better my career but will help better my patients’ health. So that way I’m up on things that they might not know or maybe something that they might bring to me. I want to be able to help educate them.
As our team that we have now, we have the best team we’ve ever had. I feel like we all work together, we all help each other out, and that is true. That is you can say you have teamwork in an office but this is, this is beyond real teamwork. This is our family, this is who we are. When we go home, sometimes we’ll send fun little text messages to each other. And it doesn’t necessarily end at 5’o clock when we go home at the end of the day and that’s the nice thing, that you have to love the people that you work with. And I think that we do.
