January 4th, 2016
I’m blown away by the fact that another year has come and gone already. Maybe it’s just me, but some years seem to go by more quickly than others. In 2015 we met many new patients and their families who began their orthodontic journey with us; some with complex treatments while others have been lucky enough to require only minor treatments.
I am always taken back when Xmas time comes round. Our practice becomes inundated with cards and treats from our patients. We are showered with chocolates, cakes, biscuits, seafood, fruit platters and sushi is just to name a few. Every day when I arrive home from work my kids jokingly ask me “What did you eat today Mum?” I am also reminded of how lovely our patients are by bumping into them at the shops and seeing their wired smiles beaming back at me.
December saw Dr Lane take his wife and kids to Bali for a much needed family holiday. I must say I was nervous that he may get stuck in Bali due to volcanic ash teasing the airways. Lucky for me (unlucky for him-haha!) he was able to fly home without a hitch and resume work as usual. Transforming smiles!
Many of our staff also had well-earned holidays. Some of them even went abroad to destinations such as Asia, Europe, England and New Zealand. So now that we are all well rested and back on deck we can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring. To all our wonderful patients and their families Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Signing off. Nikki
