Here’s what we have in the works for 2019.
The Dental Depot family had a lot to celebrate in 2018. Not only did we celebrate our 40th anniversary, but we opened more doors and gave back more than ever before! (Both things we promised in our 2018 New Year’s Resolution blog.)
To recap, 2018 saw the opening of our Central Tulsa and West Norman offices, both featuring our brand new look! The interiors are brighter and more energetic while maintaining the cozy charm you have come to expect from our original offices.
We also launched our new Instagram channel, People of Depot, to introduce you to the people who make Dental Depot possible. What started out as a project to celebrate 40 years in business, this project has been a labor of love, and it has been so well received that we’re excited to announce that we will continue to add more faces and stories throughout 2019, as well.
Last January, we resolved to reduce our environmental footprint by going paperless. Since that time, we’ve transitioned eight of our offices in the OKC and Tulsa metro areas by trading in our paper files for tablets, offering our patients a quick and easy check-in, while significantly reducing our environmental impact.
Smiley O’Riley was busy this year, as well. With events ranging from classroom education to handing out goodies at the Oklahoma State Fair and on the Oklahoma Railway Museum’s holiday trains, he was always making sure Oklahoma’s kiddos had the tools they needed to succeed in their oral health. What’s more is that we met our goal of giving this year by donating more than 25,000 toothbrushes to children and adults in need!
We’ve Got #Goals
This year brings the promise of many things. From office expansions to growing our involvement in our communities, here’s what you can look forward to from us in 2019:
1. We will continue to open more doors!
We have big plans for this year, including a new office on N.W. Expressway that will include orthodontics, and another office in Tulsa. Additionally, a third office opening is in the works for this year, located in Surprise, AZ. This will be our first Dental Depot owned and operated office in Arizona, so we’re really excited to get to know a new community!
2. We will be more involved in our local communities!
Being involved in our local communities is about more than offering quality dental care. Through the development of the Dental Depot Cultural Committee, our teams are finding unique ways to positively impact their unique locations. You can expect to see us at local parades and events, and contributing to causes on a local level, like neighborhood food banks.
3. We’ll introduce you to even more of our team members!
None of this would be possible without our team members, no matter their position. We’re committed to telling you their stories because we want you to get to know them for the great people they are, not just the great work they do.
4. We’ll use your feedback!
This year we’ll be posting quarterly surveys to get your feedback and find out what you want to see on our blogs and on our social feeds. Do you want more information about children’s dentistry? Let us know. Are you interested in learning more about dental implants? We’d love to help!
