|Words to Live By:|
The answer I'd give, "Dental hygiene's for me!"
Wrinkled noses, raised eyebrows, and "whys" came my way
To those odd responses, here's what I would say:
From doctors to plumbers from husbands to wives,
I want to work with people to help improve their lives.
I want to visit and talk as I work for awhile,
And send clients home with a much brighter smile.
This is what makes my job a big deal,
My goal is to better the way people feel.
To always keep learning is what I will do
To bring the newest treatment directly to you.
From myself, doing the best job is what I'll demand
I'll treat everyone fairly in a way they understand
I'll continuously monitor my personal growth
With the ethical inspection of the Hippocratic oath.
My patients will declare, "This girl's work is fine!"
I want to see people outside my operatory waiting in line.
I want to personally make my office a wonderful place
Where the dentist, my boss, has a smile on his face
Production will be at an all time high
My recall and therapy will be two reasons why
I'll go home at the end of a work-filled great day
To a family that loves me and is ready to play.
They'll be the ones that will always come first
For their happiness and health I will always thirst.
So now you know all I want in my life
Is to be the best hygienist, mother, daughter, and wife!
