The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth

By Linda Larsen - Friday, January 18, 2019
Featured Image

I believe that most people are truthful, most of the time. I assume, as I am sure you do, that when someone tells you something, you can trust that they are telling you the truth. It would be way too much work to assume otherwise. If you had to stop and analyze the veracity of every technician, salesperson, friend, relative, boss and co-worker each time they spoke to you, you'd be exhausted by nine a.m.!

But after January 1, after you have selected your word, how do you make that word actually show up for you? How do you remember to consciously apply that word to your life each and every day?

How to Turn a Difficult, Idiot Patient Into Your Greatest Raving Fan

“Stand here, bite down on the mouth piece and take a step forward,” the dental assistant said as she put me in the zippy 3D panoramic x-ray machine.  It was clear she wasn’t thrilled to be doing this since I was being seen on an emergency basis right at closing time and this was making her stay late.  I did as she asked.

The Most CRITICALLY IMPORTANT JOB for Patient/Customer Service Providers

By Linda Larsen - Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Featured Image

I’m a high maintenance dental patient. That’s right - a motivational speaker who is a high maintenance dental patient. It’s almost an oxymoron. But it’s true. I just think about going to the dentist and my left eye starts twitching. And what makes this really fascinating is that I am also the (self-proclaimed) World’s Most Experienced Dental Patient.

Ever see the laugh-out-loud and extremely revealing video about kids, marshmallows and delayed gratification?
