What We’re Thankful For


EACH YEAR, THANKSGIVING is a wonderful time for us all to reflect on all the things we’re grateful for in our lives, and that’s exactly what we’ve done at our practice. Here are some of the things our team members feel particularly grateful for this Thanksgiving season.

What We’re Most Thankful For

Dr. Alvarez:

I am most thankful for my Lord and Savior who has set me free.  I am thankful for my wonderful husband and two wonderful daughters that fill my every second with love, adventure, and most importantly perspective. I am thankful for my church family who keeps me in their warm embrace.   I am thankful to be able serve families in my community in a “job” that know to be my “calling”. I am thankful for a most amazing work family.  These ladies leave it all every day for the children entrusted to us, ensuring that they are safe, that they receive only the best we have to offer, and that each knows they are loved. I am thankful for my Safari of Smiles families.  It is a joy and my privilege to be trusted by YOU!!!  Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I recently moved, and switched my son’s (Easton) school. He has excelled at school, and has adapted so well to the changes! And I am thankful for my position at Safari of Smiles! I love the atmosphere and my work family so much! I finally feel like I truly have a forever home at this office! 🙂

Kendall – Dental Assistant

I’m thankful for a wonderful church that fears and loves the Lord and amazing friends and family.

I am thankful for Jesus’ saving work in my life, my family and friends, my job, and little things like chai tea lattes 🙂

I am more than grateful for my family, for my work and for having Jesus Christ as the center of my life.
