Cinco de Mayo Head Assistant Fun!

At Lane & Associates Family Dentistry we know how important meetings are for professional development and growth, but we also know they don’t have to be boring! Our Head Assistants celebrated their quarterly meeting in style. The entire meeting was Cinco de Mayo themed from decor to games to food. Table runners in a variety of colors hosted paper flowers, vases filled with colored water and fresh flower arrangements, and mini sombreros. The assistants were filled with surprise and even took pieces of the table arrangements with them!

Awards and accolades were distributed throughout the meeting. We learned and ate lunch catered by Chinelos. The delicious spread included chicken, beef, beans, rice, guacamole, salad, salsa, and a cheese fountain!

To conclude the meeting each Head Assistant received a piñata stuffed with candy and a special prize. The prizes included: 2 sets of 6 tickets to a Mudcats baseball game, a total of $360 cash, and $150 worth of gift cards.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our Head Assistants and cannot wait for our next themed meeting.

Here are some fun captures of Wednesday’s meeting!

LaneDDS Manager Meeting Fun!

Easter came a little early this month at Lane and Associates Family Dentistry for our amazing and hard-working office managers.  Our office managers work extremely hard to ensure all of our dental offices throughout North Carolina are running smoothly, efficiently, and providing the highest quality dental care and customer service that our family of LaneDDS patients deserves.  As a token of our appreciation, we surprised our office managers with an Easter-themed meeting full of fun Easter décor and a delicious meal.  Of course, what would an Easter-themed meeting be without an Easter Egg Hunt!

 

“It was a fun-filled team building Easter Egg hunt with a great and informative meeting lead by Dr. Wright.  Oh, and the Easter meal was GREAT.” ~ Casey M., Raleigh Ridge Road Office Manager

It’s not often that we get all 43 office managers together at one time so our LaneDDS Corporate Team took this opportunity to celebrate their hard work with a little fun reward.   Over 600 eggs, that’s right 600, were filled with goodies and hidden around our Lane and Associates Garner location.  An additional 40 “Golden Eggs” were hidden that contained great prizes like Carolina Hurricanes Tickets, gift cards, and cash prizes!

“It was EGG-citing! The meeting was so productive and a lot of fun. We truly have great leadership here at Lane and Associates and they are so dedicated to helping each team member grow. I am glad to be a part of this family!” ~ Dawn, Roseboro Office Manager

It’s always fun here at Lane and Associates and that’s what makes working for this amazing company so great.  If you’re looking to further your career in the Dental Industry, Lane and Associates Family Dentistry offers a vibrant, rewarding, professional, and FUN work atmosphere.  Visit our careers page to learn about our amazing Employee Benefits and to browse our available positions.

What a remarkable convention filled to the brim with dental knowledge, fellowship, and fun! Our corporate staff and dentists had the pleasure of attending the American Dental Association’s (ADA) SmileCon 2021 in beautiful Las Vegas last week! 

The convention was held at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and had over 10,000 attendees with 300 exhibitors! Our team attended CE courses, business in dentistry courses, and interacted with the other dental members from thousands of other practices across the country. 

The ADA had a new take on their typical annual meeting and created an immersive experience centered around the attendee. There were incredible speakers, Smile lounge games, creative sessions, and even a scavenger hunt! 

Thank you to the entire ADA staff, its volunteers, and the sponsors who hosted such an incredible week of learning, playing, and living dentistry! It truly made us smile! We can’t wait for the ADA SmileCon 2022 in Houston, see y’all there!

Check out the Latest CBCT Magazine Issue!

Our Dental Sleep Medicine & TMJ department including Practice Manager Mallory Harris, Dr. Andy Ciesielski, Dr. Mike DesRosiers, and Dr. Don Lane presented information regarding Sleep Apnea and TMJ treatment to CBCT Magazine in their June 2019 Issue.

Read about the latest information regarding CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Technology) which is a way by which our doctors can more easily evaluate a key factor in Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which is the airway itself. According to Dr. Ciesielski, utilizing CBCT can be, “a game-changer for the dental sleep clinician who is willing to implement the technology in their day to day practice.”

Using Cone Beam Computed Technology Scans at Lane & Associates

TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) and Sleep Apnea can often go undiagnosed. This new CBCT system is very beneficial to the patients themselves. According to Mallory Harris, this gives something tangible that patients can visualize. Lane & Associates prides itself on being on the forefront of advanced dental & medical technology which includes our CBCT scans. According to Dr. Don Lane, “A large part of our practice is treating TMD associated disorders…Since we have added the CBCT in our office I feel that we have the ability to really fill in the blanks for these patients and show them a beautiful 3D presentation of exactly what is going on with them.”

To learn more about our Sleep Apnea Treatment or TMJ Treatment at Lane & Associates, please schedule a consultation or call us at (919) 285-0882.

Hear more about our TMJ patients and their testimonials from our Raleigh Neuse office with Dr. DesRosiers.

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
