Ever since 1877, when the young and ambitious M.F. and John Patterson opened a drug store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Patterson has never been afraid to think outside of the box. In those days, we quickly learned that success in business, as it is now, was more about creating partnerships and personal service than marketing tricks and freebies. We believed in one promise to our customers, “Our word is our bond.” The solid business foundation they put into place all those years ago still holds true in the way Patterson Dental conducts business today, even though we’ve grown from a small pharmacy to an organization spanning the continent.
For the last 134 years, Patterson has been leading the way in the dental industry by staying true to our time-honored values of creating partnerships, driving innovation and doing business with integrity. I am proud to be a part of this lasting tradition as we continue to strengthen those partnerships and provide value to each of you through the amazing innovative technologies of today. Last week, we relaunched PattersonDental.com to provide a better way for you to get the products you need to improve your patient experience even faster and more conveniently. Today, we launch our blog to provide another service to you.
Off the Cusp will be a place to visit regularly for the informational tools you need to improve your practice lifestyle. The talented employees here at Patterson Dental as well as leaders from throughout the industry will be bringing you everything from technological advances in dentistry and tips to make your practice more efficient to ways you can give back to your community and information you can share directly with your patients. In addition to providing you with information, I see Off the Cusp, and our other social media channels, as a way to partner with you in a new way. Our social media initiatives provide an additional avenue for us to collaborate directly with you to help you grow your practice.
Even though we’ve just launched the new PattersonDental.com and several social media platforms this year, I know it isn’t time to rest. Things are only getting better here at Patterson and we have many more surprises for all of you in the near future. As we continue to bring you more and more innovations, we look forward to hearing what you think.
