Dr. Hwang's retirement reception June 23rd, 2011. It was a wonderful event. Thanks Dr. Hwang for many years of wonderful service, we all here will carry on the tradition!
Every year in February, Dr. Tarantola goes to Chicago for continuing education courses. There are 30,000+ dentists in Chicago that week, all attenting various meetings. There are at least 20 dental organizations that meet that week. Dr. T attended the the 54th annual American Equilibration Society, the Chicago Dental Midwinter Meeting, and the 81st annual Academy of Restorative Dentistry. The latest techniques and science are presented with hundreds of different lectures and workshops. Learning is a lifelong process!
Way to go Robin! Robin finished her second 1/2 marathon - the Donna Deegan run for breat cancer awareness. She took the day after off work to recuperate (was it from the run or the partying afterwards!!)
Our team here at the office is more like friends and family rather than just 'employees' and we try to have some fun together. After work one day, we had some snacks and drinks and everyone brought in baby pictures of ourselves (and some 'aliases') and we all had to guess the right baby!
Guess who won the contest??!!

We had so much fun at the Spring Fling in Deerwood Park! It was hosted by Natural Awakenings magazine and was held March 30, 2010. The park was lovely and it was a beautiful day. It was wonderful to meet new people and talk to them about the amazing services we offer. Pick up a Natural Awakenings magazine for free at many newsstands or visit www.naturalawakeningsmag.com.
The beautiful Gaylord Palms hotel in Orlando hosted the Florida National Dental Convention 2010. Patricia and Danay were excited to be there this year and attend a class meant to help them in helping patients. The class was taught by the lovely and brilliant Amy Kirsch and was very beneficial. The stunning surroundings of the resort also made for a pleasant stay!
This little guy had a great time in our office! After falling through the ceiling and rampaging a bit he was caught by professional trapper Ryan Boyd. We are sure he is now happily living in a place more suited for him: the forest. If you ever have an animal you need humanely relocated to the wild Ryan's your man. You can reach him at 904-859-6585, email@example.com, or visit his website at quick-catch.com.
