You are reading the very first Rosedale Family Dental Care blog post! As a dentist, this 'social media landscape' is new territory for me. In between maintaining a family dental practice and a geriatric dental clinic, my duties as Vice President of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, being a wife, and mother to two children, I'm in the process of learning the in's and out's of blogging, Facebooking, and tweeting. It's taken a while to get this blog rolling, but finally the preparation is paying off and here I am, writing my first post.
Whether you're a patient, a colleague, or just someone that happened upon this blog by accident, welcome! While the main focus of this blog will be on the professional aspects of being a dentist and to provide dental news and information, I'm sure that my personal experiences as a parent and a working mom will find their way into some of my posts as well. Ultimately, I hope that this blog will serve to ease any apprehensions you may have about visiting the dentist, as well as showcase the Rosedale Family Dental Care philosophy which is:
"Pursuing excellence and trust in patient centered dental care"
This blog is also going to be a chance for me to address your dental questions directly. I will be answering as many of your questions as I can every Wednesday, in our “Ask Doctor Archer” section. Feel free to email all of your dental questions to firstname.lastname@example.org There will also be a variety of contests and giveaways happening on the blog, so be sure to follow our Facebook and Twitter groups to stay on top of them all!
As one of Toronto's first dentist bloggers, I am looking forward to seeing this blog blossom. I hope that it will help you engage with me and the clinic and ease your mind about receiving dental care. So don't be shy, and send us your questions and comments. We'd love to hear from you!
Thanks for reading, and happy flossing!
Dr. Natalie Archer
