Pink Shirt Day

30 year thank you-page-001

During my semester I got the chance to be placed into a cooperative education program and was very grateful to work at my own dental office; Cornwall Dental Arts – Dr. Steven Deneka. I first joined my school’s co-op program since I wasn’t sure in which directions I wanted to go for post-secondary education. I always had a curiosity for dentistry, so I went ahead and started my placement at Dr. Deneka’s office with Ann; one of the dental assistants. The whole team was very welcoming and helpful whenever I had questions or just needed a hand. I was lucky enough to get a lot of experience and take part in things I would have never thought to be able to do such as observing appointments, set up and take down the rooms, sanitizing and lab work, pour up models; and even assist. Every day I was excited to go into the office, ready to learn something new. I’m now glad and relieved to know I’ll be sure of myself next year once applying to schools for the dental hygiene course. I’m happy to say I had an amazing co-op experience and after spending 4 months with everyone. Dr. Deneka and his team are very dedicated and passionate about their work. I’m proud to say I’m a patient here and thankful for the experience I had and will definitely miss it.

Placement in Dr Deneka’s Office
This was my first experience in a dental office setting and I couldn’t be more pleased and appreciative with the staff and their patience. It is a lot for an office to take on a new grad and show him or her the ropes. I was very thankful that I was able to do my placement at Dr. Deneka’s because the staff couldn’t have been more inviting and helpful! With everyone’s guidance and constructive criticism I was able to grow and become confident. I’d like to thank the whole team for welcoming me in the office and making me feel like a team member. I would really like to thank Ann, one of the dental assistants and Dr. Deneka for their guidance and patience throughout this whole experience. I am very glad that I got the opportunity to do my placement at Dr. Deneka’s and I would like to thank everyone in the office again for being so friendly and helpful.
Thank You

25 Years of Excellent Dentistry

A Cause for Celebration!

On August 12, 2010, Dr. Deneka and the team celebrated 25 years in dentistry. As this remarkable day began, we thanked all our patients for their support over the years with a newspaper announcement.

The doctor’s next plan was to meet our team for dinner. But he soon discovered we had our own ideas, as Dr. Deneka was surprised by the arrival of a limousine to pick him up to take him on a dinner cruise with the whole team.

While we were in the limousine, Diane took out a book that was filled with best wishes from our patients that the team managed to collect secretly for at least the last 2 months. Dr. Deneka was greatly touched by this gesture, and again thanks all the people, staff members and patients, who make it so much fun for all of us to work every day.

A Book of Best Wishes from Dr. Deneka' Dental Patients

On the way to the dinner cruise, the doctor had a few surprises of his own. First he presented a gold bangle to Shelley to celebrate her 15 years of exceptional service with the practice.

Next, Diane received a bangle to celebrate her 25 years of excellent patient care with our practice.

Mind you, the biggest surprise was when we were rear-ended by a car that did not notice the long line of rush hour traffic. No one was hurt, and it only served to make the evening even more memorable. We were all able to relax together on the top deck of the boat just before they announced dinner.

The whole team enjoyed our fantastic dinner celebration. Here’s to the future!

Again, Dr. Deneka and our team would like to thank everyone who makes our days a pleasure. We’ve treasured their support for the past 25 years, and look forward to the many years ahead.
