I recently attended the “Greater Southwest Dental Meeting” in Phoenix, Arizona, where I had the opportunity to personally meet with Jim and Naomi Rhode, nationally-known speakers and the develpers of SmartPractice, a dental consulting and product firm.  These two fine people have inspired thousands of dentists and their staffs to provide fabulous care for their patients.  Visiting with them is a special treat for both me and my wife, Wendy, as their optimism and values are contagious; they, too, have the passion for general and cosmetic dentistry that we have!  (Naomi is a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame, and is the sister of Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity “Achievement Award”  winner Dr. Omar Reed).

P.S. I was able to see the Cleveland Indians play twice in Goodyear, Arizona, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox, who had my favorite player, Omar Vizquel, at shortstop.  The Tribe looked good, but we still need “pitching, pitching, and more pitching!”
