Ladies Handbags and Oral Care

While the American sporting world pays tribute to George Steinbrenner today, following his unfortunate passing yesterday, I, tonight will commemorate the 14th anniversary of my own father’s death. I have been privileged to have some of  dentistry’s great minds as my mentors. Dr. Walter Loesche, Dr. Paul Keyes, and Dr. Dan Watt  have all inspired me, trained me, and supported me as our office implemented our microscopic monitoring based, non surgical periodontal therapy (gum treatment) program.  Some thirty years later we have saved thousands of teeth deemed hopeless by surgically trained periodontists. More importantly, we have given our patients the greatest gift a doctor can give…the ability to care for themselves.

Later posts will deal with some of my other mentors and the impact they have had on our practice, but the time has come to thank and memorialize my greatest mentor of all…my father, Sidney Resnick, may he rest in eternal peace. My dad was not a dentist nor a doctor. He never went to college. He sold ladies handbags and did it well. What he did best, however, was to teach his children dedication, loyalty, compassion, dignity, honesty, and the value of humor. For those of you who were over touched by the human values that have been woven into our practice…thank Sid.  I offer my deepest apologies to  those of you who we we may have failed to touch with his values and to his loving memory for not having done so.

Steven Resnick, DDS, FAES
