Mother’s Day is truly a time to reflect on moments with our moms. And of course, “moms” can come in all shapes, sizes, and descriptions – from Mothers, Stepmothers, Grandmothers, to even our friends that are the “mom” of the group! We at Lane & Associates and NCOSO treasure these moms of our lives and wanted to take a moment this Mother’s Day to ask some of our employees what being a mom means to them. Take a look at their responses below!

Raleigh Team member, Kim,  at her baby shower in May!

Responses from our Team:

From Leigh-Anne…

“Being a mom is the biggest blessing. To have an innocent child that God created just for you to care for and they depend on you for everything. Lawson looks and smiles at me and my heart skips beats!”

Clinical Administrator LeighAnne Ennis and her son Lawson.

From Natisha…

“A mom means being a doctor, a lawyer, and a referee. A mom means finding something else worth living for outside of yourself. A mom means sharing a never-ending stream of love with another person that does not ever change or waiver, that’s unconditional!”

Greensboro Office Manager, Natisha Webb-Peterson and her four beautiful children.

From Heather…

“Being a Mom is by far my greatest blessing! The best part about motherhood is the unconditional, rewarding love that exists between my sons and I. Becoming a Mom has taught me to love harder than I ever have and to stop and appreciate the beautiful things in life I previously took for granted.”

Clinical Supervisor, Heather Barefoot’s two sons: Braxton and Trevor.

From Kelley…

“Being a mom is LOVE. From the selfless acts of carrying and giving birth to being the provider of a child’s wants and needs, is the very essence of what love means. To lay down one’s own life is undeniably the most beautiful gift. From the sweetest smiles, the brightest eyes, and the cutest giggles that fill your life with happiness and joy. Knowing that they too, one day will know how to feel and express love is in return the greatest gift anyone could receive.

So… if I boiled this all down, it’s like I gave myself the most expensive, greatest gifts one could ever receive!”

Marketing Department Employee Kelley Isaac with her children, Hampton and Etta.

From Lilly…

“Bedtime snuggles are my favorite part of my day. When we all are winding down and getting ready for bed. Reading books and telling stories. There is nothing that lights up my heart more than when my son asks for me to tell a bedtime story. They always start with “Once upon a time there was a dragon named Declan and a unicorn named Aurora” Or “a dinosaur named Declan and a pony named Aurora.” The stories always end with hugs and kisses. His baby sister waving and saying “byyyeeee.” Just the image is enough to make my heart full.

It’s like by the end of the night when they both are asleep, I can’t remember that my 4-year-old son purposely dumped his juice on the carpet. Or that his 2-year-old sister somehow got sour cream in her hair. But its like motherhood is a paradox. It can be messy and gross. But it can also be sweet and beautiful.

There is one thing I have learned since becoming a mother and it’s “there’s no love like a mother’s love.”

Marketing Department Employee Lilly Holcomb’s children: Declan and Aurora.

From Stephanie…

“Motherhood is sort of like a roller coaster.   The thrills, the twists, the turns…

As my children become adults I have quickly realized that being a mom does not stop at 18 years old.  They still need me, even if they don’t know it!  Being a mom does not mean perfection…mistakes are made…lessons learned, but I do know that my children will always know they were loved deeply.  If I could offer one piece of advice, Love hard, laugh a lot, and be involved as much as possible.”

Marketing Director Stephanie Klein’s children: Abby, Jacob, and Dominique.

 

Thank you to all of our employees and patients who are Moms. We hope you have a beautiful Mother’s Day filled with love!

Have you ever thought about glue? Well, we think about it constantly at LAA because our Administrative Professionals are the glue that keeps our company together! From our treatment coordinators to our office managers to our corporate staff, we would be nothing without our administrative professional team.

Back in the old days, Administrative Professionals Day was considered “National Secretary Day” and of course, that won’t fly anymore. We aren’t all secretaries! Now we are schedulers, managers, coordinators, and administrators of day to day tasks and without us, the company just wouldn’t know which way is up!

 

While the name of Administrative Professionals Day has changed, the meaning and sentiment behind the namesake remain. We want to appreciate those hard-working individuals in administrative professional roles and to CELEBRATE them! That’s why at Lane & Associates Family Dentistry, we pre-packaged some fun for our Administrative Professionals and personally delivered them to each of our 30 offices!

Every administrative professional received a cooler tote that read, “There’s nothing cooler than a hard worker, thanks for always giving your best!” They also came pre-packaged with drinks and snacks so our staff is ready for anything! We thought it was pretty cool. Get it?! Our staff had such a fun time receiving their gifts this morning and even snapped a few photos for us. Check em out!

Thank you again to our wonderful dedicated Administrative Professionals at LAA. We truly value and appreciate all of the time and efforts that you put in on and off the clock. We love to make our employees smile!

Love,

Lane & Associates

THE LEAVES ARE FINALLY CHANGING…

…pumpkins are seen at every street market, and Fall is in the air at Lane & Associates!

This season has a lot of special and fun memories for many of our employees, so we thought we would round up some of their favorite Fall traditions and Halloween costumes for a spotlight on our dedicated team members. It’s important to share memories with others and each of us have a story to tell. Take a look at our team’s traditions & stories below!

 

Our Cary Tryon team member, Lilly, shared, “Halloween is my favorite holiday! And as a requirement every year my family has to follow a theme. We all have to have a story.”

“For my son’s first Halloween, 2015, he was Chucky, dad was Freddy Kruger and I was a vampire. For Halloween 2016 my son was Captain Hook, I was Tinker Bell and dad was Peter Pan! He wore tights! For 2017, my son was a dragon, my daughter was a princess, dad was a dragon slayer, and I was his fair maiden. This year we are going with a superhero theme. My son will be Hulk, dad will be Thor, and my daughter and I will be Wonder Woman and wonder baby!”

Our Marketing Coordinator, Stephanie, LOVES Fall. Here are her favorite things to do over the season: “Fall is my favorite season! Partly because my birthday is in October…so I just get excited as September approaches. I “Fall” into the category of pumpkin spice lover, so I have to wait all year long to get my fix.”

“My favorite early Fall tradition is stalking Trader Joe’s and waiting for their pumpkin spice pancake mix to hit the shelves. As soon as it does I feel like I can begin all the fun things…decorating and enjoying hearty soups. #ILOVEFALL” Check out her seasonal decorations!

 

Many of our employees dressed up for Halloween this year at the offices.

Two of our favorites were our Roseboro and Pittsboro offices. Our Pittsboro office chose to do a magical Unicorn land with Rainbows, clouds, and Skittles galore! Dr. Flynn even brought a fuzzy Rainbow pen around with him to sign patient charts.

Last but not least, our Roseboro office dressed up as animals & friends on a Farm. Plus, Dr. Miller was the Farmer. Our favorite touch is definitely the “EAT MOR CANDY” sign imitating the Chick-fil-a cow though. Way to be creative!

So many more of our offices participated and here is a collage below! We absolutely love the participation this year and are so proud to call these fab-boo-lous employees ours!
