This time of year is particularly poignant, filled with the festivities of family and friends. After the last 20 months of emotional ups and downs, it is the perfect time of year to reflect on our blessings and express our thanks. Thanksgiving is a word of action – and one that resonates differently for each of us. This month we asked several LANAP-trained clinicians one thing they are grateful for in their dental careers.

I am really grateful for my practice partners and the amazing colleagues that I have worked with over the years.
