A team is important because, really, I rely on my team members. Without them, it's really hard to provide the quality and the level of service that we provide. If you look at a lot of reviews online, we do not solicit our reviews. Our reviews are organic. People write them down and they get a chance to review us when they leave the office.
Very consistently, you see, “The team was great. I felt comfortable. I really enjoyed the environment.” The reason that people have great experience is really it's all about my team. My team is professional, friendly, they're very knowledge, and they're willing to go the extra mile to help you and to be able to ...
Whether it's with your insurance benefits or whether it's explaining to you what the doctor, myself, has already kind of talked to you about. Sometimes they just need to hear it from a team member rather than the doctor to be able to really hit home and understand what they need to do for their mouth to make it healthy. Without my team, I cannot provide the level of service that we provide here at Alluring Smiles.
