Happy Monday-funday! 😉😁
I tried, America! Tried to donate my plasma so some lucky people can have my army of COVID antibodies, but I was denied due to the blood thinners. Darn it!
Anyways, people have been soooo thoughtful, still, in wishing me well. Two lovely ladies bestowed absolutely gorgeous flowers on me. Lotte brought me these tulips that are absolute perfection--I should take a picture and turn it into art. They were yellow when I got them and the orange has developed in the last 48 hours! The gorgeous bouquet that is sitting on our counter for all to see was from Aimee and the awesome Preast family who contacted me weekly when I was sick, to send well wishes my way. Thank you all SO much for this. It did the trick and has brightened my entire week! 😍💜
March may have dawned today but our February door message still holds true, from now to eternity...! Trust me when I say you DO NOT want this virus!
One year ago, today, was a changing day for this practice! It was the first day of employment for this super-duper-dynamo of mine! The past year been SO full of curveballs, but the biggest one of all was how very much I have come to appreciate, adore, and love my Taryn. She is a gem to my patients and me. I thought she would be the lucky one to receive a few small gifts and a lunch of her choice, but turns out I am the lucky one. She came in with these on-pointe goodies, but the best part of all was her card. Thank you Taryn...I can't say it enough. I can't imagine coming to work without you at the helm!
Always thankful for amazing people in my life who bring a smile to my face. Last week that happened twice...Once from Pamela who never comes empty-handed to an appointment. Thank you for the deliciousness! Twice from Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche, by way of the talented and beautiful Dima Faham, for these flowers that truly brightened my day! We love having them on the front desk for all to see. Thank you both for your caring and generosity. 💜
[02/11/21] Last night I had an unusual, yet uplifting experience that reminded me there are still good people in our world. After leaving my office, I got through one stoplight only to come upon an accident that had just happened. I saw a man pulling over across the intersection and the one next to me looked as if he was going to stop, too. I was in the turn lane, so I put on my hazards and we all started heading towards these two cars in the middle of a 4-way, 8 lane intersection, in the pitch black, freezing cold of night. It turns out it was 2 young females...one car was totaled, the other had all of the airbags deploy, but I wanted to ensure no one needed medical help. I helped the ladies, the one man was calling EMS, and the other, bless his heart, was trying to direct traffic in the dark. As I looked around I realized it was me, an Indian man, and an African-American man that all made the effort to help these girls. We were gender blind, politically blind, and ethnicity blind. We need more of this in our world! Be the change you want to see..... (Thankfully, the ladies were okay other than being scared to death.) ❤️🤍💙
Another bummer of a day around here...just found out my beloved orthodontist passed away. Dr. Stern is THE reason I went in to dentistry. He was just an amazing man and so kind to all of his patients. Growing up I was a figure skater and half of our rink went to see him. He wasn't near our house...in fact, far from it, but he was worth the trip! He would even come to our rink when we had local competitions to watch us all skate. Who does that?! And, he gets all the credit for my smile..the one I've gotten so many compliments on over the years. He lived a good, long life but it still saddens me. Love, L'chaim 🔯, and rest in peace, Dr. Stern. 🔯💔
Facebook is supposed to be for business, finding new patients, blah, blah, blah. I’ve never been one to subscribe to that and I’m not starting now! I have always used it to show thanks, show final results, or cheer people on. Today is no different, and this post is much more for myself than those around me. Today is day 53…my first day back to work since I fell ill with a severe case of COVID. It has been a 7 week nightmare, one I hope never to repeat, but I have so many people to thank. And so, I’m doing it here—for family, patients, and friends. It’s in no specific order and please forgive me if I forget anyone. It isn’t intentional.
•To my sweetest husband, hero, & savior..I wouldn’t be here if not for you
•To the world’s best Mom..for everything
•Gail, Nicole, and Jeremy for your constant concern and texts
•Susan for your worry and offers to help
•Pannell family for more than I can say…food, cards, errands, gifts, and uber-caring
•Drs. Kharmouche, Maharaj, & Bidgoli…my professional saviors and just amazing people. I can’t thank you enough, there are no words sufficient. My practice would have folded if not for your help and selflessness!
•Brittney B…for being the only familiar face I got to see in the hospital…for taking time out of your crazy shifts to come give me a hug when you knew I needed it
•Alisa…my nurse patient who’s taken it upon herself to be my private, on-call help

•Debbie, my soul sister, for caring, cards, and the most cuddly of blankets
•Chrissy, my first employee-now-dear-friend for the daily check-ins and a 4 bag COVID survival delivery from Whole Foods. You didn’t forget a single thing.
•Ashley for the flower bouquet, constant check-ins, and the offer to come take care of me if all else failed
•Davey, my residency director-turned-dear-friend for all your texts and the delicious croissants
•Dr. Julie for literally keeping me sane and calm for sooo long
•Trudy, my first hygienist-turned-dear-friend for your concern and messages

•Ma & Pa Lessick, patients from my residency 20 years ago who are still in my life…for your card and chocolate delivery

•To my entire ‘team’ at Loudoun Hospital for your empathy, skill, and continuous kindness! Thank you for helping others while putting yourselves at risk.
•Drs. Cherlakola, Kopstein, & Pooyan for saving my life!!!!!!!
•••And last, but certainly not least…to the BEST thing that happened to me in 2020…my dynamo. Taryn, thank you for keeping this place afloat, for making a literal million calls to cancel 7 weeks’ worth of appointments, for making me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry, and for providing me my own, personal Taryn’s Delivery Service. You are such a g-i-f-t and I love you!
To be very clear, I finally tested negative on day 43 and I did NOT get this at work! We know exactly how it was contracted...unfortunately from dishonest people. So, PPE works! Wear your masks and get vaccinated! That is our wish for all for 2021. I still have a road ahead of me, but I am working my way back into the office. I appreciate everyone’s patience.
Hallefrickinlujah! Finally something positive happened!
Today was a great Monday of this Turkey Day week at Pipeline Plaza! I had my very FIRST patient...in all my years of practice now...with the name of Dena! Spelled differently but the same name, nonetheless. Anyways, it's a small thing but it made me smile. :)
Next...can you even stand the awesomeness of these pictures?! I trekked 118 miles, ONE WAY, on Saturday, to see these lovely ladies finnnnalllly get hitched! We were a small group, socially distanced and sporting our masks out on the sand by the lake. Everything went like clockwork. It was a dusk full of smiles and happiness all around! I think by the smiles in the pictures you can say Terri & Dee enjoyed their wedding day! Congratulations again! (And didn't the bouquet and boutonniere crafted by my Taryn just look extraordinary!!!!) 🎊🥳💍💐
The "high" of Friday was our surprise mini-bridal shower for these two brides-to-be! Terri (the one in the checkered pants) became my cashier-go-to at Weggies many years ago. We just hit it off and after many trips through her line she decided to take a chance and become my patient. Many more years later we have become true friends!! Once her now-fiancee came along, she had no choice but to join in our little dental sorority....and the rest is history.
Anyways, Taryn and I did a dang good job on Operation Undercover Bridal Shower and even managed to pull off some car decor to boot! My little dynamo also made this gorgeous bouquet, as requested, for the wedding!
These 2 ladies have had a long, often tough road in life and we are so happy for them! Can't wait to attend another patient wedding...how many tooth docs are that lucky?! Mazel Tov to Terri and Dee...wish them congrats. and good weather for their nuptials next weekend!!!!!
It was "Hi/Low" Friday here last week...Friday the 13th! The 'low' was having to say goodbye to this dear patient and her sister, as they stopped by our office for a final swipe of best lip balms ever and some goodbye hugs! It has been such a pleasure and professionally rewarding to serve Cyn and her sister Barb. Cyn did a testimonial video for Dr. Kharmouche's office that we're sharing here. I think I can safely say this was the hardest case he (and I) have ever done. I call him my Wizard for a reason. I remember that day of surgery like it was yesterday...as she says, it WAS 9 hours long and I remember just seeing and watching the wheels turning in his head on how we were going to make this happen. It was far worse when we got in there than we expected. I waited patiently and did what I could to assist...knowing full well and NEVER doubting that he'd find a way...and he did. We didn't cut corners, we didn't do the minimum...we called in the cavalry from Straumann implants, we had hands on from all of Dr. Kharmouche's staff, and we made it happen! A beyond-beautiful result for a beautiful lady.
You can scroll back almost a year ago to the date...to Nov. 20th, 2019, to see her before/after pictures that we posted. Amazing!
Good luck Cyn & Barb...we will all miss you tons!!!
Fabulous patients of Dr. Dina's,
We hope you are doing well amongst the craziness of 2020. This year has been one we won't forget! As the holidays quickly approach we want to remind everyone how important it is to plan ahead for your dental care. We have very limited availability between now and the new year, so if you have any work that you need done and haven't scheduled it yet, please call ASAP so you can secure a date and time! We hope to see everyone soon! 🦷😄
Dr. Dina and Taryn-the-Dynamo
It's Monday Funday here at our office! It was also **wedding weekend** so instead of a joke or something funny today I'm sharing pictures of my beautiful Dynamo and her lovely bride! That's my Taryn...right there...in the white dress looking so lovely and happy. COVID wasn't about to stop these two! Though only a few family members were allowed to attend, I'm so thankful to have been on the list of those invited to watch via Zoom. I had tears in my eyes and a smile on my face, just like they did. 🥰 Taryn & Danielle....wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter, and great memories. Like I said, may you grow old on one pillow! 💖
T-minus 5 days and counting until this Ms. becomes a Mrs.! Can she be any more adorable?! She's been wearing the required COVID bridal attire since last week when the countdown began. She has arrived to work each morning with a little gift and poem waiting at her desk. Please send her well wishes and congratulations and everyone cross their fingers, toes, and all body hair for good weather and a few bits of sunshine this weekend!!
Happy Monday! 🤣
insider.com There's no evidence of coronavirus transmission in dental offices to date, and dentists are taking extra precautions during the pandemic.
Well it's been an AWESOME Friday here at Pipeline Plaza, for soooo many reasons! On this Rosh Hashanah eve, wishing everyone L'Shanah Tovah--a Happy New Year! Heaven knoooows we need a
new, good year! We're supposed to say a blessing for all we're thankful for so I decided to put mine in print.
I am super thankful for all the surprises that were bestowed upon me today; I'm super thankful that no one in my family, friend circle, or fabulous patient circle has lost their life due to COVID. Many contracted it---but they've all recovered. Double awesome!
Most of all, I'm more thankful than I can put into words that this half warrior, half wonder came into my life. I don't know what pot of gold I came across or what rainbow formed over this office without my knowing, but I cannot imagine my life without this smiling face in it. There isn't a day that goes by that at least one, if not allll, of our patients tell me how much they LOVE her. Not "like her"...love her. Her sweetness is contagious. She runs this office like a well-oiled machine and she knew not one, single thing about dentistry before she started working here. I hear stories from colleagues and old classmates about their struggles with staff since COVID hit...many are stressed to the hilt and have been left high and dry without notice. I am so fortunate to go home each night knowing every detail of running this office has been tended to, and that this smile is going to greet me each morning. For those who still haven't met her, you don't know what you're missing!
To Taryn-my-Dynamo...a million thank yous for all you do for us, thank you for enriching my life, thank you for cracking me up each and every day, and thank you for your service to our nation.
L'Shanah Tovah & L'Chaim,
Since we won't be in the office on Monday for our "Monday Fun-day" post, here is a little humor for your Friday! 😄
Another patient just decided to invest in their smile by saying "Yes!" to Dental Warranty! It's a great day to give yourself some peace of mind!
Because seriously, what if your dog eats your nightguard?! 😂🐶
Happy Monday-Funday! 👑
Too awesome not to post..even though one or two pics you've seen before! This dapper dude is several months into sporting new front teeth via implants and crowns. The tissue that he has around these teeth is amazing, incredible, and perfect! Thanks to the wizardry of Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche. Keeping tissue on the front teeth, especially the pink "V-shaped" papilla between each set of teeth, is a huge feat in dentistry. H.U.G.E. Looks easy but is one of the hardest things to accomplish. And how 'bout those amazing, lifelike crowns courtesy of SvenTech Dental Lab?! I'd say we freaking nailed it and this guy is one happy camper!
This thoughtful note sure made my week!
As we all know, Dr. Dina is a perfectionist. Having a perfectionist as your dentist is obviously a huge score on your part! You know that she does amazing work and won’t let you leave here with anything less than that. However, she can’t protect your teeth from those crazy mishaps in life--like chipping your crown while you’re playing catch with your kid or biting down too hard on an olive pit. Every time we need new dental work the first thing that runs through our heads is “Oh boy, are my benefits going to cover this?” (It’s okay, you can admit it!) Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can now protect your dental work such as implants, crowns, restorations, nightguards, and more, from those unforeseen circumstances! How… you ask? We have partnered with an amazing company called Dental Warranty and together we can offer a 6-year warranty protection to our patients. Benefit providers can be tricky with their pesky 5+-year frequency limitations, waiting periods, and missing tooth clauses. Instead of paying for a new crown (or other dental work) out of pocket if something unforeseen happens, we will cover the cost up to the original fee! Our partnership with Dental Warranty will provide you with the peace of mind you deserve after investing in your oral health and smile. Do you travel a lot or plan on moving? Your warranty follows you nationwide! How cool is that?! Give us a call today to see if you can add a Dental Warranty to your recent dental work. 😃
