We had our annual mall day last week! What's mall day you ask? The first week in December we close the office for a whole day, we have a team building day Christmas shopping together.

Why the Prevention Message?

Boy did we attend a cool seminar today! A group of around 300 people from dental offices all around Minnesota gathered at the Embassy Suites in Bloomington. The seminar was titled "Are We Having Fun, Yet?" by Bruce Christopher. Bruce is a Minnesota native who is part psychologist and part comedian.
