News-Antique.com - Aug 25,2010 - A loyal dental office staff is difficult to assemble and even harder to keep. That is why the longevity of Dr. Ed Coffey’s staff, a popular dentist in Encinitas, is such a rare occurrence. Their average tenure? An astonishing twenty years. “I have staff members who may have had to leave me for one reason or another, but they always come back and stay for years and years. I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” says Dr. Coffey. “And I know scores of dentists. ”
Most dentists toil trying to get the right staff members who will gel, and then stay. In fact, dental conventions even offer seminars that teach how to maintain staff. But does Dr. Coffey simply has a knack for it?
Says Barb Campbell who has been with Dr. Coffey for 25 years, “Dr. Coffey is such a kind, fair and generous man, I couldn’t imagine working for anyone else. And he isn’t really trying to be those things, he’s just that way and it comes out in everything he does.”
Anna Marquine, Dr. Coffey’s dental hygienist for 20 years adds, “The doctor has created a very light environment. I have friends who work under extreme pressure. I wouldn’t trade places with them for anything.”
Of course, in Encinitas teeth are the first thing that everyone sees. Can any Encinitas cosmetic dentistry afford to be anything but very serious?
Says Sasha Bivin, a 20-year veteran of Dr. Coffey’s practice, “We’re both highly professional, but also very friendly and caring. That’s what makes it such a great place to work. Dr. Coffey presses the professionalism yet allows us to be fun and light-hearted. The result is happy patients and it’s always a joy to work with people who are happy.”
Fifteen-year staff-member, Suzie Nunes offers, “Our staff has developed a second-nature with each other. We know each other’s roles so perfectly that the level of efficiency is something that the patients can definitely feel—especially if they’ve ever been to other dentists in Encinitas. We’re like a finely-tuned machine. We’ve nearly perfected our service.”
People may think they are coming in for simple teeth whitening, but what they get is teeth whitening Encinitas-style. “It is laid back and comfortable, but highly professional and attentive. It’s really the finest experience of any dentist in Encinitas. Our patients couldn’t be happier and that is due to my remarkable staff,” says Dr. Coffey.
