Success in life is in the eye of the beholder. It is common knowledge that true happiness is only acheived with balance in ones life. Work, worship, love, family/friends have been the commom thread of happiness for the “modern” human being. My work, dentistry in my Palm Harbor, Tampa area dentist office is a huge part of my life. I will address dentistry again.
Worship takes many forms. Being part of an organized religion is the most common form. One can be very spiritual without being religious. Respect for our fellow living creatures and our environment can be another form of spirituality.
Humans are social, not solitary creatures. Love is a part of life. Humans NEED interactions, love, touch. A child that is unloved rarely becomes a happy / healthy adult.
Family and friends, pictured is my daughter Kendall Jordan Caputo, with a friend of hers. I spent Labor day weekend 2011 with my children (Mathew and Kendall) and each child was allowed to bring a friend. I had such an incredible time with these adolesents. I also have a good friend, Michael Fackender who was at Little Gasparilla Island in his families vacation house. This gave me an adult companion.
It is possible to be very good at only one leg of the table of happiness and not acheive a succcessful / fulfiling life. This leads me to dentistry. To be a successful dentist, one needs to provide the best, most appropriate treatment possible for every patient, PERIOD. It is possible to be very good at one aspect of dentistry but to have complete enjoyment from my occupation over a long practice career, one must be a Comprehensive Dentist. To me, dentistry is one of the greatest professions in the world. There are not many professions that allow one to prevent, cure and/or repair disease in a single appointment.
I started practicing dentistry in 1985, and I opened my first Palm Harbor, Tampa FL area dentist office on April 23, 1988. I knew that technology would advance the practice of dentistry by leaps and bounds. the key is bsing able to understand IT (information technology), learn IT, buy IT and then use IT. This is my simple strategy with dental technology.
It is important to know when to add new (and often expensive) technology. In December of 2008, I purchased a Gendex GXB-500, Cone Beam Computerized Tomography machine (CBCT.) That purchase has been one of the best professional decisions of my dental career. It transformed my comprehensive dental practice. My ability to diagnose disease has been incredibly enhanced. My ability to treat (especially dental implants and dental surgery) has been moved ahead by light years!
