Passes Pewter Bee

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.

Vadim with Dr. Passes

Vadim’s Story

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!
