Yesterday, Cat and I got to spend the evening with the Von Boeckmann family! We originally met Dr. Von Boeckmann when we got back on the road to dental health. A mutual friend told us about Dr. Von Boeckmann’s practice and once we finally got up the nerve to “find out the damage” we made an appointment and we are sure glad we did! What we quickly noticed once we visited his dentist office, is that it is a very down-to-earth and friendly place. It was almost like we walked in to a family gathering and one of our family members happened to be providing dental exams and cleanings. I am sure you are thinking “Yeah, right!” but it is the only dentist we will be going to from now on. I am sure that our kids will be seeing Dr. Von Boeckmann for their braces years down the road! If you happen to be in the market for a new dentist, be sure to check out Radiant Smiles of Texas! We drive over an hour to get there, so you know it is well worth the drive.
I am sure that some of you have been in the situation where you get to know someone in a business setting first and then on a personal level. We first got to know Dr. Von Boeckmann as our dentist and called him “Dr. Von Boeckmann” and accordingly called his lovely wife “Mrs. Dr. Von Boeckmann”. As Cat and I were driving to meet up with Dr. and Mrs. Dr. Von Boeckmann, we were trying to figure out if we would call them “Dr. and Mrs. Dr” or by their first names. We even went to the length of having our dialog all ready for when we would “pop the question” to see if we could call them by their first names. It went like this:
Luke: “Dr. Von Boeckmann, I know that you have gone to school for and worked hard to be called Dr., you have fixed my teeth, and you are close to being done fixing my crazy wife’s teeth, I feel like we know each other. Would it be okay if I called you Keith?”
However, we did not have to get to that point, because as soon as we got to their home, we said “Dr. Von Boeckmann it is good to see you!” He immediately said “Call me, Keith!” What a relief!
Anyhoo! Enough of our awkwardness, and check out this gorgeous family!
I think that so many times when parents have kids, they forget to take a little time out for themselves. When we do any sort of family or group session, we always make sure to focus on the individuals and the group. These next couple of ones really make me happy!
Finally, we got to put on our business professional outfits and get some rockin’ headshots of Dr. and Mrs. Dr. Von Boeckmann for them to use on their website as well as their print advertisement campaign for the dental practice.
Keith and Sherry, Cat and I had a great time with you and your wonderful kids! Hopefully we get to spend more time together when you aren’t on the search for cavities!
