The Invisible Enemy

Wow! It’s been a ride! With ALL of us pulling together, we are on the way to winning the war against an invisible enemy. Even though at first COVID-19 appeared as another strain of flu, it turned out to be a formidable opponent. I appreciate all of your patience during this difficult time. We miss all of you and hope to see you soon.

Once again, the American people have proven that they can and will defeat the enemy together when times get tough. So, we are honoring everybody in our dental family that helped during this health crisis.

We appreciate the CDC workers for their research in fighting the enemy. Their effort in seeking a cure and a vaccine to help in the future has been relentless Without the help of Physicians, Nurses, Nurses Assistants, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Technicians, and Orderlies we would never be well. And, as always, we appreciate the first responders like the Policemen, Firemen, and EMTs. You have been in the mix as well.

Social distancing has been a challenge for all teachers and students, as well as parents. We commend the teachers in their adventure in virtual lesson planning and execution through an online venue so that our youngsters could remain safe. We appreciate the dance teachers that offered virtual exercise when everyone needed it. Parents have stepped up to teach their children during this time and have accomplished much. (Not sure how that new math faired; many children may have learned to “carry” the one.) The children have had disappointments and have felt lonely for their friends, but they have maintained their distances. For all the graduating seniors, you are loved. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Grocery and Pharmacy workers. These people are in the thick of it, yet they still came to work so that we could have food and medications.

I appreciate my dental team from the bottom of my heart. They came up with a plan to handle dental emergencies quickly without exposing one patient to another. But, my team must have had some thoughts of the contagion out there effecting them. So, thank you for your efforts and dedication to our dental family’s needs.

If I left anyone out, I apologize. I know we are definitely in this together.
In my mind, ALL of you are Heroes.

The virus can’t win with everyone united for its destruction.
