Keeping in touch by blog!

Thank you for spending a few minutes and checking out my blog!

This is a great way for me to keep you informed about what's new at Oakdale Dental.  You'll find stories about todays dentistry and how it can make your life better and healthier, and sometimes some random thoughts I hope you find interesting. 

If you are already one of my patients, let me know what you think.  Any topics you would like to read about or questions you have, just send me an email.There is lots of information already on this site and my other practice website: Oakdale Dental! 

For those of you who I have not had the pleasure to meet yet, I'm glad to have here and feel free to drop by and pay us a visit at Oakdale Dental in beautiful Oakville.

So, come back once in a while...I try to post regularly and have some interesting things for you to check out and maybe a story or two to tell.

"Facebook" and my "dental friends"

It's hard not to notice that this year seems to have been the year of "Facebook" or "social media".  500 million people connecting online with new and old friends.  Everyone wants to be in touch with their friends, seemingly all the time.  It's hard to miss the addiction that being connected online has become.  Have you see two people having dinner together in a restaurant, each on iPhones or Backberry's texting to someone not at their table or had to avoid someone on the strret too busy to look where they are walking as they text?  Once in a while I'll have a patient try to text while I am treating them.  Not advisable... 

I have been fortunate to have built up thousands of "friends", not on Facebook but right in my dental practice.  I get to hear all about the lives of my patients or should we now refer to you as "dental friends".  Marriages, babies, looking up at kids I use to look down too, holiday trips and new jobs.  And at this time of year everyone wants to know where I'll be skiing this winter (Austria if you're interested... going to be the second time...the shnitzel is great!).   

And every once in a while one of my dental friends will ask for non dental advice or confide a problem because they need a friend to listen.  And that's humbling.

So "Facebook" has been happeining in my dental office for a long time and it's better in person!

Happy Holidays!
