Catch the Buzz
Here's the Buzz at the Hive!
The next time you visit with us, look for a pewter bumblebee pinned on our shirts, tops or coats. Those who have seen this have asked us what that’s all about. We have the belief that there is nothing we cannot do if we give it enough time and persistence. It goes against our grain when we hear that “it can’t be done!” So, why the bumblebee?
According to the laws of aerodynamics (the rules of flight for the airplane) that industrious little bee should not be able to fly. Its wings are too small and oddly shaped for its overweight rounded body to fly. But, don’t tell that to the bumblebee. It just keeps on going and going, defying all of the conventional wisdom. We feel the same way. When we come across challenges we strive hard to overcome them for your benefit. It’s the recognition in providing a successful personal service, which fuels our ambitions. We thought it would be inspirational for others to learn about your own personal challenges and how they were successfully met by you.
On a periodic basis we will present a newsletter aptly titled The Buzz, which will present your story. Upon its publication we will present you with your pewter bumblebee to wear proudly. Never say that it can’t be done. When my children say that something is too hard to do, I explain that hard just means it takes longer to do, not that it can’t be done. We look forward to hearing your stories of enlightened growth while overcoming personal trials.
Introducing the newest member to our hive, Monica J.. Upon finding out of her invitation of becoming a member of the hive, for overcoming her fear of dentistry, she said, “I always knew I had to go to the dentist. I always feared it, as many people do. At my daughter's insistence, I made an appointment. Of course I was hesitant and tried to find every excuse not to go. I sucked it up and went. To my surprise it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had to make another appointment and had the same hesitation but I went. I sat with Dr Passes and he really calmed my nerves for the up and coming procedure I was going to have. I couldn't have asked for a more reassuring consultation. Finally the day came. I was so anxious. I didn't sleep the night before. It was a wasted night of no sleep because every thing went perfect. The entire office took great care of me and everything went well and I ended up with a beautiful smile in the end. Thank you Dr Passes...”
Theresa had negative experiences with dentists in the past and her oral health suffered because of it. She was not comfortable with her past providers and her dental needs were not met. Theresa came to Passes Dental Care because her daughter was getting married and she no longer wanted to be ashamed of her smile. After her initial visit, Theresa has been keeping her appointments and maintaining her dental hygiene. She is confident and loves the way her teeth look and feel. Congratulations Theresa for overcoming your fear of the dentist! Welcome to the Hive!
For those that know Isabel, going to the dentist was an improbable event for many years. Her fear made her handicapped from taking care of her oral health and dental needs, that is until her husband introduced her to Dr. Passes’ book. After reading Profiles in Dental Courage: How to Completely Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist, Isabel made her initial visit to Passes Dental Care. Looking back now, one would have never guessed she had a fear because not only is she taking care of her oral health, but she is also coming in for her visits alone. Congratulations Isabel! Welcome to the Hive!
Prior to Sam being a part of our dental family, he was very fearful of the dentist. Sam had terrible experiences in past dental offices that had caused him to neglect his smile.

Congratulations Colleen on becoming a member of our hive, not only for coping with your fear of dentistry but for also completing a very large case with strength and courage! Welcome to The Hive…
One would have never thought that Vadim would sit through his appointment at the dentist. Before coming to Passes Dental Care, Vadim was known for going to his appointments and leaving the dentist before his appointment even began. Sometimes he would even just get out of the chair, while the dentist was talking to him, and leave the office. His fear of dentistry had gotten the best of him. Vadim became a patient of Passes Dental Care and he began to cope with his fear of dentistry with the help of our team. Not only did Vadim stay for his appointments, but he also finished and achieved his dream of a beautiful smile makeover! We would like to take this time to highlight Vadim’s accomplishments and conquering his fear of dentistry… Welcome to The Hive!

Congratulations Ingrid and welcome to The Hive!
