Mary Jo’s 30th Service Year
Whether you are a new patient to Centro Dental, have been seeing Dr. Allan Woo since his very first office in Chinatown, or anywhere in between, you have probably met Mary Jo. Along with many of Dr. Woo’s patients, Mary Jo followed Dr. Woo to his new office in Richmond, BC where she raised her 2 sons and now her chocolate Lab, “Rolo”.
Mary Jo is the sweet and smiling face that escorts you to the dental chair. She is the considerate and thoughtful soul that remembers every detail about you and your family. She is the caring and comforting support that will hold your hand when you are anxious about a procedure. She is the hard-working and dedicated dental assistant that has provided exceptional and friendly service alongside Dr. Allan Woo for 30 years as of September 2013!
30 years of service definitely calls for a celebration, so we did just that! After weeks of planning, the Centro Dental Team surprised Mary Jo with a fun-filled evening full of everything from 1983, the year she started working with Dr. Allan Woo. Everyone shared their greatest memories of Mary Jo along with good food, laughter and even tears!
In addition to this celebration, Mary Jo received Invisalign treatment courtesy of Centro Dental. Next time you are in the office, see if you can tell she’s wearing them!
Here are a few words from Mary Jo:
Wow, I can’t believe I am celebrating my 30th year with Dr. Woo! After graduating from the Certified Dental Assisting program, Dr. Woo took a chance on me and the decision to work with him was an easy one. I found a Doctor who had great clinical skills, loved to teach (I needed that), integrity and his patients all adored him.
Thirty years is a long time in one place but as dentistry evolved, so did Dr. Woo’s desire to learn and change and that always kept my career “fresh” (despite my love/hate relationship with the computer). The addition of Dr. Danielle and our associates added so much liveliness and fresh ideas to our practice. I have had such amazing fortune working with the best staff and above all, our patients (old and new)!
I feel proud to be part of building this amazing practice we have today and look forward to seeing you many more years (maybe not 30)!
