We have been so blessed this summer here on Vashon. Our team enjoyed some time off in July. We had a great experience at the Vashon Garden Tour and are very excited to make this an office summer tradition. This August we are also celebrating Hannah’s one-year anniversary with us here at Dental Care of Vashon. She has been a lovely addition to our team! Among other success stories; we have grown our first tomato plant here at the office. This may not seem like a big deal, but we are very proud that we, not only kept it alive but it is also flourishing! We are hoping to try some fried green tomatoes, as many of our patients have raved about them.
The start of September means back to school again. This is always a busy and exciting time of year as parents and students transition into the school year schedule. The end of summer is always a busy time for us here in the office, as we accommodate college students before they head out of town. During the school year we anticipate seeing more children at the end of the day. If dental appointments work best for you in the afternoon, it’s a good idea to pre-schedule your wellness visits for the fall and winter months.
In anticipation of fall we are putting our gardens to bed and preparing for the rainy weather. The Courthouse Square maintenance crew has been hard at work cleaning the gutters and trimming the foliage back. As we transition into the new season, we want to let our patients know of planned time off at the office. The first week of October our hygienist, Cheryl, will be taking a well-deserved vacation. Wednesday, October 23rd we will be closing at 2:30 for our staff meeting. We also will be closing early for Halloween. Each year one of our “lucky” staff members gets to dress up as “Molly the Molar” and heads uptown for the yearly Halloween festivities.
If you are a Vashon school district employee, be prepared for new dental insurance options this October. You will be presented with 3 options for dental, Uniform dental, Delta Dental incentive plan and DeltaCare. If choosing the DeltaCare option, please be aware we are not in network with this plan. As a courtesy to our patients we are here to answer any insurance questions you have, so be sure to use us as a resource!
