What a year 2012 was for the Woodborough House staff,
Although we work hard, we’ve all had such a laugh,
Congratulations to Sara and Lou,
They became first-time mummies – both bundles were blue!
Speaking of babies, Sen will soon be a Dad,
Look out for him on TV, on the Sensodyne ad!
But that’s not all, oh no, there’s one more,
Dental nurse Laura is expecting baby number 4,
After 26 years our veteran nurse left,
Good luck for the future Hayley; we wish you the best,
And welcome on board the Woodborough House way,
Our new dentist Mehdi, and new nurses Lo and Jay,
Receptionist Leah doesn’t miss a trick,
She organises all the ITI Study Clubs for Nick,
Our Nick is amazing; he takes on new tasks every day;
Last year he was made Chairman of the Reading BDA,
He’s also been the only one asked
(which is very prestigious and grand)
To give talks to dentists from all over Europe
in Basel, Switzerland.
There to make sure things all run fine and dandy,
(He’d be lost without her) is his trusty nurse, Mandy!
Our Accountant Sam has come up with a fantastic recall system;
She’s made lots of procedures much more efficient, with her pearls of wisdom!
David does cooking and running (he’s our Endodontist)
When he’s not training hard to become on the Specialist list,
Another hard-worker – congratulations to Kirsten,
She’s passed the first part of her exam for nursing!
The prize for ‘Best Hostess’ must go to Sarah, it’s true,
For throwing yet another fantastic WH Summer barbeque,
July also saw the Theale Olympic Torch kiss,
Our staff went to see it – it was one not to be missed!
There was much excitement in Woodborough House growing,
As we watched one of our patients win Bronze in the rowing!
We have our very own celeb – cosmetic dentist Mark treats the stars;
When he’s not working in his Harley Street practice, we claim his expertise at ours!
We are lucky enough to have another expert; specialist periodontist Kuljeet,
He is no match for gum disease in all the patients that he treats!
In October we had Chris Barrow’s “Discovery Day”,
He taught us how to improve our work day-to-day,
An improvement made by hygienist L’ren is very exciting,
She attended a course and now does all our tooth whitening,
Our other hygienist Helen is as knowledgeable as can be,
She has been invaluable in helping us get compliant for CQC.
Our Business Manager Karen is great; she does a lot for compliance too,
She loves her Excel spread sheets and a glamorous high-heeled shoe!
Clinical Manager Cathy is our Mummy; she has us smiling throughout the year,
Patients and staff alike would be lost if she wasn’t here!
Responsible for our new patients, she has many strings to her bow;
As Cathy also works as Woodborough House’s T.C.O!
And working closely alongside Cathy, is little old me;
I’m no William Wordsworth, that’s clear for everyone to see!
I do a little bit of admin, and a lot of work on reception,
And am mainly responsible for our online social media blog collection,
And so this poem comes to an end; my personal highlight of the year,
Was our Christmas party, full of food, booze, dancing and festive cheer!
We rounded off 2012 in a theme of 1920’s wonder,
As we turned up in style to Trunkwell House in a champagne-filled stretch hummer!
A massive thank you to Sarah and Nick for everything that you do,
And to the rest of the WH team for working hard the whole year through!
Now the time has come again after Christmas, for WH to open its door,
So let’s get to work guys and see what 2013 has in store!!
