Over 20 Rodeo Dental Team members were elected to travel to Las Vegas’ Delano Hotel for the Crown Council annual event in order to become educated, motivated and inspired. This prestigious and energizing experience dates back to 1996, which began when the original 400 members of the Crown Council met in Kerrville, Texas. In the beginning, these meetings consisted of like-minded professionals gathering together in order to further the world of dentistry. Twenty-two years later, the Crown Council has become dentistry’s finest non-clinical dental program with over 1,000 members! At the Crown Council, Rodeo Dental Team Members consumed knowledge, became charged with motivation and attained skills that empowered them as dental professionals to implement a fresher take on workplace culture that will bring them financial and personal wins. The chosen employees were carefully hand-picked based on their outstanding dedication and passion for the Rodeo Culture.
Rodeo Dental Team members had the chance to sit and listen to main-stage presenters, participate in break-out sessions, and engage in the Crown Council’s Lunch & Learn Presentations. Mary reflected on the presentations she listened to, mentioning that, “In the pursuit of success, we often forget about the growth opportunities life can bring. Attending the crown council has reminded me to appreciate both the journey and the success.” Their education extended to becoming motivated, not just through learning, but by also adopting an emotional commitment to what they learned. Each moment spent in this event was filled with laughter, learning and best of all, developing the skills as a team to continue to foster a workplace culture that is sure to leave a lasting impression in the patients they have the pleasure of servicing.
Patient Loyalty’s Brenda had this to say about her experience at the Crown Council, “The most memorable thing about Crown Council was that it permitted us to get out of our comfort zone and only then were we able to meet our best version of ourselves.”
Corinda further stated that the event reminded her of a powerful lesson to: “Surround yourself with an unbelievable team of like-minded people. Look at who is on your road crew and who you crew for. Make sure all pieces resonate.”
A big part of the Crown Council includes exchanging and injecting brand new ideas into a Dental Practice that stem outside of only focusing on dentistry. As Dr. Zarrabi mentioned, “The best and biggest part of the Crown Council is discussing professional ideas and learning from others in the field as well as propelling forward the growth of Rodeo Dental’s culture!” And that was exactly what those honored to attend were able to experience. Awards and recognition are embedded into the Crown Council experience, adding to the hype of an already incredible occasion. Rodeo Dentals’ very own Dr. Mansour and Dr. Zarrabi were recognized with the “Best Doctors to Work For” award and our very own Rodeo Dental team received the “Team of the Year” award for demonstrating a great team atmosphere and approach to patient care!
One thing is certain, the Rodeo Dental Team’s experience in the Crown Council will remain unforgettable to those who had the opportunity to attend and also an eye-opening experience brimming with new knowledge, connections and best of all–team building.
