Tuesday I had my first working interview, and after working for 7.5 hrs, I found out I got the job!

This is not the office I work at, just an insta of when I worked a day at Mike's office.

He also paid me for that day of work right then and there which was really nice, because who wants to ask the boss (of a place your not yet hired) when you can expect to be paid for the work you've done.

It's a really small office, but I love that the entire staff (totaling 5) is friendly to not only the patients, but also each other. I've heard many a horror story about working in dental offices where the assistants don't get along with the hygienists and no one helps each other out, and they even kind of pick on each other. I was really pleased with how my day went at this office, and then even more pleased when they offered me the job! The assistant will always bag my instruments for me, and mount my x-rays. And I was able to help her out (when one of my patients cancelled) by sterilizing instruments and then when she wasn't able to get a PA of tooth #4 (she had taken 4 x-rays already trying to get this one shot- thank goodness the patient was in no pain and didn't mind) she asked me for help. I did it for her and got it on the first try! I was kind of really proud of myself because I've always felt like I'm not very good at taking x-rays, then when she was asking for help I was nervous because I was trying to impress these people for goodness sake! I must be alright because I also took a few bitewings and they all turned out well. Phew! It was a blessing that I got the opportunity to do something that really did impress them! Hooray for a steady income!

Hey, Tare! Ok, so this might be a weird request, but we want a new computer. We've never had a Mac, but we think we want one (a desktop). Since Brady was the awesomest salesman ever, can you have him (if he has time) email us kind of a sales pitch for which Mac is best, and maybe why they're better than pc. I do a lot with pictures and photoshop (cs4) so which iMac is best for that and how much memory (we have an external tb hard drive) should we get and processor and all that?

Thanks SO much!!!
