  • Looking back

    I am a self-admitted perfectionist.  I have a hard time seeing the 99% of successes and often times focus on the 1% of things I could be or should be doing better.  This trait has led to much success, but can also be a burden for my team and family. In the first few months […]

  • Growing Pains

    I never experienced ‘growing pains’ as a kid.  When I was young some of my friends would complain of sore knees, hips, and backs, apparently from growing too quickly.  It was never an issue for me. Carver Dental has experienced rapid and explosive growth since we opened last June.  The support and reception we’ve received […]

  • Looking back

    This picture came across our Facebook timeline today and I couldn’t believe it! One year has already passed since we broke ground on Carver Dental.  And look where we are now! Sometimes I pinch myself when I think about how far we’ve come.  There were plenty of nights throughout the process of getting off the […]

  • Heimatfest & Steamboat Days

    It’s good to get out and have new experiences.  It keeps us on our toes and breaks up the occasional monotony of every day life. As we get it older it seems like ‘new experiences’ are few and far between.  Now in my mid-30’s, it didn’t seem like a parade would fit the bill as […]

  • Our New Dental Home

    This is what we’ve been waiting for.  After years of dreaming, hoping, working, and planning we’re ready.  On Monday we go live with our website and will be ready to start scheduling all of our new friends for their first visit to their new dental home. I’ve got butterflies in my stomach, just like I used to […]

  • 2 Months & Counting!

    WOW! This summer has been wild, and I can’t believe that Carver Dental has made it through nearly 2 months already. I like to think I’m a pretty deliberate and prepared person, but I’m not sure anything could have prepared me for the craziness of opening a business. June was wild; every day I felt […]

  • 10 years

    10 years.  That’s how long it took me to get my dental degree (thanks to a detour through pharmacy school).  Ever heard of a super senior?  I was a super, duper, duper, duper, duper, duper senior. Kids: feel free to contact me about how to accomplish this and still have your parents love you. It […]

  • Why Carver?

    It’s the most common question I get from people who know I’m ‘the dentist’.  They’re wondering why a person with any sense at all would build a dental office in a cornfield.  But to really know why Carver, you’ve got to understand where I came from. It was early 2015 and I was lost.  My current job wasn’t […]
