When you look at this title you may think wow where is this blog going. Like most of my fellow football fanatics Thanksgiving is like hitting the jackpot. Not only do you get to have a great meal with your family, but it’s a football feast too, with all the games being broadcast. Many of you may not know this but I am an avid football fan and actually play football (well fantasy football does count right?). As we embark on this joyous time of year, I am taking a minute to reflect on some of the things I am thankful for. One of those is the career path of orthodontics. It has afforded me the opportunity to create beautiful smiles, and change people’s lives. Working together with dentists in the community and building relationships with them, their patients and families is one that makes it enjoyable to go to work every day. Basically the title explains it all. I am thankful for Family, Turkey, Football and our great patients at Aleman, Sternstien & McDaniel Orthodontics.
