What a RAD day. A Color me Rad day that is….

As many of you know, the Divas and I love to have fun.  We are always looking for group activities to do together outside of the office.  Today we ventured into our second 5K as the “Nunn’s on the Run”.  To say we had fun is a mere understatement.  We had a RAD time!  Some of our family and friends joined in on the day to make it even better.  We all started out nice and clean while wearing our white attire, along with a few DIVA additions of a sassy skirt, brightly painted nails, and rockin’ rad socks.  Then it ended as if we were rainbow dyed Easter eggs.  Wonderful weather and fabulous fun made for a really RAD day…..A Color Me Rad day that is.

United We Dance To Cure ALS….Zumbathon

 

We invite you to join Dr. Nunn and the Dental Divas in a Zumbathon hosted and instructed by our very own DIVA…..Amy Walker!  The cause behind this Zumbathon is to collect donations to help cure ALS.  Our very own Joal has a mother that is directly affected by ALS and the donations from this night will be made in her mother’s honor.  ALS is known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or called Lou Gehrig’s disease by many.  ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body.  The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death.  When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost.  With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

Friends, Food, Flowers and Wine

We recently had a girls night out celebrating Valentine’s together.   Our night consisted of making beautiful topiary floral arrangements at our favorite florist,  Just Priceless in High Point.  Our food, catered by Tony Stevens of Hamilton Street Bistro and Catering in High Point, was divine!   Dr. Nunn stopped in a Real Creations to pick up some wine and a box of sweet treats for each of us. We ate, laughed, and put our creative side to work.   The topiaries were so much fun to make and the comradery was great!  A big thank you to Just Priceless for allowing us to ‘set up shop” with them for the evening.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope you all had a FABULOUS Valentine’s Day.  Our Valentine’s celebration was “Just Priceless”!

Reflection and Gratitude

I recently received a postcard from a dear family friend,  Martha Redmond,  she and her family have been a part of my life for many, many years.   The post card resembles a lot of ME.  It has a picture of the beach……I adore the beach and retreat there any chance I get.   It has a shell that is in the shape of a tooth…….I’m a dentist and teeth have been a large part of my life in many ways more than dentistry.   Then the final thing is, the simple note attached that reads “given your history—-thought it may be yours!!”.

 

Many of you may have heard this story before, my four front teeth were unintentionally knocked out by my brother when I was 2 years old.  My dad, being a dentist, made me a flipper/small partial to wear until my permanent teeth came in.   However, as I aged, I was notorious for taking the flipper out and leaving it places, especially at the Martha’s home, where I would often go to play and end up staying for dinner.   I would take the flipper out to eat and leave it behind…..ALOT!   So, it was quite ironic when Martha found this tooth shaped shell, at my favorite place (the beach), and so cleverly thought of me.   I have looked at this post card often, along with two photographs that hang in the office.  I pass these picture numerous times a day when entering and exiting the fourth operatory.   Yet, it wasn’t until my recent end of the year reflection that I had my “aha” moment which brought these three pictures together.

 

I had no clue growing up in a home with a father who is a Dentist, that I would one day become a Dentist myself.   I had no intentions of this career path, yet so many signs, now, stand out to me that this was my destiny.   I often drew pictures for projects at school, and all were typically dental related.  I even won first place in 1977 with the giant tooth picture I drew that has a cavity on it.   This is the same picture I pass in the hall day after day and have for years.

 

 

During my end of the year reflection, I realized how truly thankful and grateful I am for the people in my life and the experiences I have encountered along the way.   The patients I have make everyday worth while for me.   I encourage each of you to allow yourself some time to reflect on your life, those in it, the path you are on, and how you got to where you are today.  It is so easy to get caught up in your daily routine and forget to stop, take a breath, and enjoy all that is around you.   Clearly, I have been guilty of that myself.   These pictures have been with me for so long, and not until now, have I truly appreciated the “root” of their existence and how they led me to this point in my life….which I LOVE so much!

 

Happy New Year to each of you.  Let’s make this year the best ever.  Take some time for you.  Reflect, breathe, and appreciate all that is around you.

 

XOXO

A Brighter, Whiter Smile!

The Human Spirit

The human spirit is an amazing thing, and this past weekend was an incredible reminder for both my husband and myself.  We have spent the last 6 months training for the 2011 Marine Corp Marathon in Washington, DC.  The training has been arduous, painful and mentally taxing, but well worth the inconveniences.  However, none of this would have ever been possible without the help and support of family, friends, and co-workers.  It truly does take a village!  The 6:00 am long runs, the after work runs, the massage appointments, the injuries, the doctor’s appointments, and the shuffling of children from one location to another, were all just pieces, and parts of an ultimate goal.  A goal that simply would not have been achieved without the support of people we love.  Thanks to you all, we love you!

Our marathon weekend started off full of surprises.  Dear friends had organized a surprise family celebratory dinner on Friday night, complete with carbohydrates and good luck posters.  We were definitley off to a good start, and receiving all the positive “juju” was an added benefit.  We left bright and early on Saturday morning, ready for the culmination of our hard work to come to fruition. Sunday, when we awoke, and it was beautiful.  In fact, it glorious and we were finally ready for our run.  However, I soon came to realize, I was NOT ready for the massive emotion that was forthcoming.

Marine Corp Marathon Packet Pick-up

The magnificent show of “human spirit” was amazing.  Random strangers on the sidelines, became instant friends.  They came to cheer us on, pat our backs, slap our hands as we ran by, and tell us we were “awesome.”  Their unconditional support helped us to cross the finish line.  Posters, that read “We don’t know you, but you can do it!” helped to lift us up, posters that read “Chafe now, drink beer later,” made us laugh and momentarily forget the pain.  Funny costumes helped to decrease the tension.  We were surrounded by thousands of unknown well wishers, and it was unbelievable.  At mile 18, my own staff, unbeknowing to me, had traveled to DC to come and support us in this endeavor.  It brought tears joy to both my husband and myself.

A running Whoopi Cushion helped to break the tension!

"The Divas" come to DC!

The show of human spirit was continued with the young autistic runner, the blind runner, the double leg amputees, Marines in full uniform carrying backpacks and running in boots, the British Marines that traveled long distances to participate, the three military men training by carrying a third person from spot to spot, and all the various organizations that were represented.  Ultimately everyone had their own personal reason for running, and their own goal to achieve.

The Brits came to join us!

Marines in full uniform, backpacks and boots.

Marines were everywhere, they graciously handed out water and snacks.  They were our own personal cheerleaders, who yelled and encouraged at each mile marker…”Ooh rah!”  As we crossed the finish line, they were there handing out warming blankets, and personally congratulating each person. They placed your finishers medal around your neck, and shook your hand.  The finishers village was full of marines passing our water, gatorade, food and making sure we were all well taken of.  They truly were the ultimate support force!  Semper Fi!

As I look at my pictures, and think back on my marathon experience, I become a bit teary.  First, that my husband and I finished, what a great feeling, and incredible accomplishment (check that off the bucket list).  Secondly, to be enveloped by such support and love from family, friends and random strangers is truly humbling.  Lastly, to witness such strength in people is overwhelming.  The human spirit is an amazing thing, and in the end, we did kick a little “assphalt.”

We're done!

Office Neurosis

Neurosis is a class of functional mental disorders involving distress but neither delusions nor hallucinations, whereby behavior is not outside socially acceptable norms.[1] It is also known as psychoneurosis or neurotic disorder, and thus those suffering from it are said to be neurotic.

Everyone, or most everyone, I know has a “neurotic moment” or “personality glitch” from time to time, and just the other day, one of my receptionist, had a moment.  First off, let me go ahead and say, I love her and she is wonderful, but, boy did she have a” moment.”  She went through the entire kitchen, opened every cabinet, and left all the doors open.  As I walked into the kitchen, she appeared to be in complete state of shear mania.  Doors were opening and her hands were frantically moving.  In the case, of my receptionist, open cabinet doors, are her neurosis, and that is our sign, that an immediate demise is forth coming.  Ultimately, I surmised that she must be in need of some form of nutrition. Needless to say, the cupboards were bare, she was NOT happy, and frankly I was scared!

 

The cupboards were bare!


The interesting thing about people’s neurosis, it is often a direct gateway to their needs, or emotional state at that specific time.   I have learned over the years that these “moments” need to be addressed, and if not, can truly be dangerous.   So, in the case of my receptionist, an immediate run to the gas station for chocolate, bread, butter and a REAL Coke was a necessity.  After consumption our office world was completely restored.

Let us know if you have any office “moments,” we would love to hear from you, and how they are handled!

XOXO

Think Pink – Part 2

My PINK Inspiration!

I am a runner, and my husband and I have been training to run the Marine Corp Marathon at the end of October.  The training has been long, gruelling, and to be perfectly honest, awful at times.  However, I am fortunate, and very grateful to be surrounded by a large group of men and women all working to achieve the same goal.

Our Saturdays are always the same, we wake up early, we run, we eat, and then we sleep.  This past Saturday was no exception, we ran 22 very long, and hilly miles.  As the run got longer, our legs got heavier, and the conversation became harder, I started to notice all the PINK.  It was everywhere, and it was exactly the inspiration I needed to finish the last 3 miles.

 As I finished my last few miles, I thought of all the women that have struggled with Breast Cancer and I realized that my pains were really very insignificant.  Thanks for the inspiration, and remember, this month is all about “THINKING PINK!”

 

Strong legs of strong women

Think Pink!

In my profession I see all sorts of interesting details on a daily basis, and not much shocks me.  However, last week, I was caught a bit off guard, and experienced a professional “WOW” moment!  Carter Grice, one of my 7th grade patients, came in for a routine preventative appointment, and like most teenagers, he has braces.  He has always had a beautiful smile, and does an exceptional job with his oral hygiene.  So, when I entered the hygiene room to do my routine exam, his PINK smile was not what I expected to see.  In fact, I  was immediately blinded by his PINK orthodontic bands!

Carter Grice - 7th Grade HPCA

 

I was astonished!  So naturally, I asked why he chose PINK orthodontic bands, and he quickly responded, “It’s for Breast Cancer.  I was inspired by my coach, Scott Bell, whose wife has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, and a family friend, who has also suffered from breast cancer.”  It was then, that I experienced my “WOW” moment.  I thought to myself, how cool is that?  How awesome that Carter, a 7th grade young man, took the step, or better yet leap of faith, to support a cause so huge!  Through such a simple act, he became an instant PINK billboard for breast cancer; it was brilliant!  My hat goes off to him and any young person who is out there making themselves an advocate!   “WOW!”
