I enjoy coming to work with my staff because they're pretty enthusiastic with what they do and they like what they do. I have a small staff. I have a hygienist that comes in every day and I have two assistants. I have the front office staff, which is Peter. They're happy crew. A happy office is just an easier office to work in. I always tell people that work for me, this is your sanctuary, this is your oasis. It's a tough world out there but when you walk into my office, I want to create an environment that's pleasant and it's fun to work in. I'm a pretty easy boss to work for.
