The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor,” legendary football coach Vince Lombardi once said.
What do the following things have in common?: the colour of your walls; your waiting room furniture; what the patient hears while waiting in your office; the way you shake your patients’ hands; how often your patients come in for treatment; how you explain things to patients; the magazines in your waiting room; the topic of conversation during treatment; the sensory environment; and almost every other aspect, of your treatment room.
