Marti Crenshaw works with me in my Palm Harbor Dental office. She has been working as a charside dental assistant since she was 15, with her dad, Clearwater Dentist Ralph Baker. Here is a picture of Marti and her dad from a St. Petersburg Times article, dated Saturday, Febrary 5, 1966. Time sure flies by, look at that old belt driven drill in the background.
My profession, Dentistry, gives me much professional fulfillment. Dentistry constantly challenges me. Owning a private practice dental office requires more than just the technical skills aquired in dental school, it is a small business that runs on a capitalist economic model. One must market, lead, manage etc.
This next picture is Marti and her dad, Marti is proudly displaying her report card, straight A’s!
This report card is for work experience, she has worked as a dental assistant since she was 15, she compliments our team nicely. Teresa and Wendy manage the front desk, Marti and Renee are chairside with me, Cindy is our dental hygienist and Cheryl is our bookkeeper. As explained in my previous Blog, I am the Palm Harbor Dentist.
Dr Baker had a long and distinguished career in Clearwater. The last picture shows Dr Baker with Bob Hope – golfing together.
