"West side is the best side!" Everyone knows that West Michigan is one of the best (if not THE greatest) places to live and work. Downtown GR, the beach, great skiing, country living and city life all within reach, who would ever want to go anywhere else? Well...Brittni did...and about 45 million other people who already live and work in the Greater Detroit Area.
Here at Direct Dental, we are proud of the fact that we are a local small business started by working hygienists trying to make work in the dental field simple. We aren't big shot corporate gurus sweeping in to market another service that no one really needs, so why are we now offering service clear across the state? Because Brittni just moved clear across the state. This fall, Brittni finally caved in and bit the bullet. She said goodbye to freedom and hello to housework---and got married! CONGRATS BRITTNI- this means ( for her)- a great choice, wonderful husband, happy future....and for me....goodbye best friend and room-mate, big screen TV, and favorite pair of brown boots that I always borrowed. Brittni's fabulous husband, Ty, works for Wayne State University in Mid-town Detroit, and they live just north of the city. Since DDS was primarily operated by the two of us, that makes for some changes and decisions.
As far as hygiene goes, Brittni was back to square one....hunt around for hygiene jobs that are hard to come by when you don't have connections, or start making connections and giving the East Side the comfort of knowing they are covered. She chose #2 so she could support her husband in his job but still do the work she loves of hygiene, and Detroit is already thanking her! Brittni is taking the same staffing model and personal approach that has been working so well here in GR over to the East Side. We are now offering last-minute subs, vacation & maternity leaves, and Helping You Hire for both hygienists and assistants in and around Detroit, Northville, Livonia, Ortonville, etc...
It's still us....a small business that wants what is best for hygienists, assistants, office managers, and dentists who want to be connected. We still will make the calls at 6:00am to get a sub to your office, and we still work to find quality subs.... we're just doing it from two places now.
If you're from GR and love working with Brittni, don't worry...she's still doing the office managing for both sides of MI, commuting back to the GR base bi-weekly while subbing herself and getting the East Side set up.
And don't worry about me....I got a new pair of brown boots to replace the ones I always borrowed of Brittni's, I decided I don't need a fancy TV, and we're still best friends....why did we do all this work in the first place? So we can have some flexibility in scheduling and work when and where we want to, we're hiking the Grand Canyon this February! If you can't get a sub come March, it's probably b/c we didn't make it out....
All in all, you get the best of both worlds: Small Business personal service where we know you and meet your needs personally, and the quality of work that comes from a growing business doing things right, from the beaches of Lake Michigan to Mo-Town itself, we've got you covered.
