Howdy everyone! It is with a heavy heart that we are saying goodbye
to Dr. Cathy this week after she has served our wonderful patients for
these last several years. Dr. Cathy has decided to establish herself
closer to home in anticipation of starting a family. Easily one of the
best dentists I have ever worked with, we wish her well.
will be taking her place you ask? Good question. Dr. Qadri will remain
working at FVDC on Monday, Tuesday, and Saturdays as she has for the
past two years and we have added appointment times on Thursday and
Friday until we can find a suitable replacement for Dr. Cathy. But we
don't want to just hire anyone and with associate dentists difficult to
come by, I'll need to remind myself to wait patiently on the Lord. When
the perfect dentist comes along, we'll know it.
Its interesting when you
wonder why it is difficult to find a new dentist. Years ago, there were
three dental schools in Chicago alone, each graduating 125-150 students
year after year. In the early 90's, two of them closed and the
University of Illinois College of Dentistry reduced their enrollment to
under 100. Why? Looking at our brothers and sisters in the legal
profession, we saw an over abundance of attorneys... so much so that
many new graduates were working crazy long hours for little pay because
if they didn't, someone else would. In an effort to avoid saturating
then devaluing the dental professional marketplace, enrollment was cut
way back. But now, years later, we have been seeing that there are many
older practices who's senior dentist is ready to retire, but no one
there to make a purchase. It will help that Midwestern Dental School is
now graduating young dentists, but again, finding a replacement for Dr.
Cathy may take some time. Say a prayer for us, that we will be blessed
with a great new dentist.
That's all for now. Be back soon.....
