At Summit Dental Health, we are not only committed to improving the health of our patients and our communities, but also investing in our team members and providing a rewarding place to work. In keeping with that commitment, we host annually a Summit Summit, as a way to come together as a team to celebrate what has gone well in the past year and to realign our focus for the coming year. Our Summit Team Meeting is a time we recognize the hard work of our team members and dedicate time to self development and improvement.
This year’s meeting was a huge success! In celebration of the Olympics, our theme was to Go for Gold! We believe we have the best dental teams in the Midwest, and what better way to demonstrate that than to have our teams going for gold? The day was filled with fun and excitement. We started the day with an opening ceremony, welcoming each team and a special team member as the office flag bearer. We then heard from a dental industry leader, Dr. Wayne Mortenson, about the future of dentistry, and how to continue providing excellent patient care. Next we learned about setting personal goals, visions and getting through tough times from the energetic and always entertaining Koran Bolden. Later in the day, we learned from talent coach, Cheryl Penava about the importance of filling each other with positivity and affirmations.
We also spent a lot of time having fun with each other, including the scavenger hunt you may have seen on our Facebook Page. Our teams had to complete 7 challenges, and of course the winners got to take home the gold! We wrapped up the day celebrating each other and the impact we are able to have on our patients and our communities.
At Summit Dental Health we are committed to improving the health of our patients and our communities and we know, that in order to be successful, we must never forget to fill the buckets of our team members. By taking great care of our teams, our teams can take great care of our patients! We hope you enjoyed getting to see us go for gold!
