Showing our Struble smiles at Hollywood’s Universal Studios
You may have missed us around the office the first week of May. The team flew south together to attend the 2018 American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session in Los Angeles. The weather was great, the palm trees were beautiful, and as always, we managed to sneak in a little fun with our work. We enjoyed team lunches, strolls along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and even a trip to Universal Studios! Here are a few highlights of what we learned from this enriching work trip.

- Career happiness and culture-building in the office

World-class doctors and practitioners in orthodontics covered everything from spotting sleep apnea disorders to developing patient-centric care plans to non-surgical methods to help with bite correction. Our front office staff was able to learn new culture-building techniques for the office, how to master effective communication, and tips for handling team expansion and growth with ease, which is hugely valuable with our new office location opening in Redmond this year.

Fostering a culture of growth, fun, and innovation is what we believe in at Struble Orthodontics. Providing the best orthodontic quality treatment to our patients is not just about having great technology but encouraging and investing in the future of each team member. Continuing education opportunities for busy orthodontic practices come few and far between, so we seized this moment to celebrate our team and are so glad we did! This trip to the AAO 2019 session gave us new creative ideas and practical application points to begin using in our practice. As always, our primary goal is to our wonderful Bend and Redmond patients and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve learned. Please do come in and see us or schedule your next appointment.
