I've had the benefit of being in practice for 30 years in this community. Part of what's made it more of a family practice for me is I've had the opportunity to know a lot of families from when they were parents, to children, and now I'm sad to say or happy to say that I'm seeing a lot of grandchildren as well. That's been a big part of it for me.

Then I think Dr. Cummings coming into the practice and joining me. She's done a good job of bringing that same philosophy. She has two young boys. She's very family-oriented. As the years have gone by, I tend to let her see more and more of the children because she's... as you get away from that, you tend to get out of tune with that, my children are raised and all that but she's still in there so she knows exactly what the young kids like. She can keep them entertained in the area. She's been able to really pick up the strength there. That's helps out on the family dentistry.

We like to think of our patients as family. I can't think of a week that didn't go by that somebody doesn't bring something in for us. We all have to watch our waist line real carefully because of that. Then we do a lot of things like when we'll have, like in this Martin City area we have Third Thursdays, which is every third Thursday of the month, they have celebrations. A lot of times we'll rent a big slide, inflatable slide and have kids that they can come up here and play in front of our office. We try to keep it very friendly, family-oriented because truthfully, it's your family's such future.
