No cutting corners - "when the going gets tough, the tough gets going". This one encompasses honesty and integrity. There will be no shortcuts taken to get the job done. Always prefer quality over quantity. We will take the high road, even when failures happen. Value people over profits, fostering relationships based on trust.
Always learning - " Curiosity is the engine of achievement" We are all work in progress, and will commit to continuous learning to make ourselves better both personally and professionally.
Understand to be understood - We will listen with our ears, eyes and heart. "To listen with compassion is to give a precious gift" I strongly believe that solutions always lie in the story when we listen without judgement. We will always treat each other and our patients with respect.
Exhibit humility alongside confidence - "Self confidence is important but without compassion and humility it's arrogance." There is zero tolerance to arrogance. No job is too little and no position is too big to get the job done. We will constantly look to help each other and learn from each other through constructive feedback.
Empower - " Leadership is about empowering others to achieve things they did not think possible." Whether we take the time to teach our patients so they can make informed decisions about their dental health or give back to our community, we are constantly going to strive for ways to empower each other, our patients and our community.
Core Focus - Understand the whole person by looking at their lifestyle, current health and presenting oral status before making narrow short term solutions just focused on teeth.
