Recognize an exceptional colleague, or yourself!
His PIRA submission read, “Oral cancer. that of Sjogren. Lupus. Tell patients they are going to lose their teeth. Tears. Laughing. To hold hands. Memories. Company. Being a dental hygienist has been a remarkably rewarding career and this is just the beginning. Over the years I have had a plethora of unexpected experiences. I could write about each of my encounters with patients that really impacted me, but at the end of the day, I can say that I really impacted them too. I collected memories of these people. I changed some of their lives with good news and bad news. Yet when I hear them say, “This is the best experience I’ve had at the dentist,” it reminds me that I’m doing a good job.
