Not Exactly As Planned........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Yesterday I had an appointment with my dentist to get my permanent cap put in. Well, that did not happen. The lab sent the tooth, but it did not align with the bottom teeth. So back to the lab went that tooth and back in my mouth the temporary. Things do not always work out as planned. There is a lesson in that I believe. It isn't what happens that often matters but how you react to it.

I am disappointed I have to go back but grateful that my dentist wouldn't accept less than perfect. I am not sure I would have known, but glad I was dealing with a professional who did. Life is seldom perfect but there are some things that need to be.

Work requires precision and attention. The best deals I ever had in real estate were not problem free but problems solved transactions. There was a terrific satisfaction in overcoming difficulties and being able to move forward. So that's my thought for today. Enjoy.

The dentist chair is my very least favorite place to sit in the world.  Good luck with it being right next time and I hope that's soon.

Having a true professional when it comes to health issues or dentistry is very important.  I fought to see a particular ophthalmologist recently.  And, after quite a process, finally got in to see him today.  I trust him to do my eye surgery to remove a significant cataract.  However, he is booked solid for surgery until the end of March.  I'm hoping someone will cancel, and he can fit me in.  But, I'm willing to wait, even if no cancellation comes before.

You might not have noticed a difference early on, but over time you likely would have and it would have bugged you.  Good thing that your dentist is adept enough to realize that and make sure it is done right the first time.

Hi Sheila:

That certainly must have been disappointing  - for both you and your dentist - but fortunately your dentist is concerned about everything being right, which is how it should be. Hope all moves forward well.

There are lessons in everything - I believe that too! It's a great thing you were dealing with a professional and they didn't try to put that cap on. YOu're working with the right dentist!
