A Few Words About Connie

connie-desk

Connie grew up in San Francisco.  Based on a high school requirement for a job credit, she happened to knock on the door of a woman dentist and got a job in her dentistry office.  She found the field to be interesting and thought dentistry was a great career for a woman.

To enter the field, Connie obtained a graduate degree in biology from San Francisco State University and then completed the requirements for a DDS degree at The University of the Pacific. The DDS program helps future dentists gain clinical confidence. The curriculum focuses on the health and technical aspects of dentistry.  The DDS degree prepares one for setting up a dental practice, working as an associate dentist  with someone and / or teaching dentistry.

Connie started out as an associate working for two dentists and then partnered with one of them. Now she is learning the business aspects of running a dental practice. Her current job involves common dental activities, such as fillings, crowns, and root canals. After her second child was born, Connie reduced her work week to 3 eight hour days. She says that dentistry is a great career for women because you can make a good living and have some flexibility.


Her biggest work related challenge is dealing with the mental stress caused by the fact that most people do not like going to the dentist.  However, this is in part offset by the enjoyment of relieving patients' pain and helping them to look better.

To be a successful dental practitioner, Connie has come to appreciate the advantages of having a friendly personality, being a good listener and having both patience and perseverance.  Continuing education training to keep up with the latest developments is also important.  Using the internet, attending ADA Conventions and ADA Seminars helps her obtain the required 50 units of continuing education every 2 years.

She points out that the new developments in dentistry are centered on cosmetics as patients want to look younger. Veneers, implants and teeth whitening are much more important.  But to retain healthy teeth, she recommends daily teeth brushing and flossing plus semi-annual visits to your dentist. Finally, it is beneficial for a child to start visits to the dentist at around 2 years of age.

Aside from her dental practice, she values spending time with her family.

Testimonials

Connie Morris DDS. is the finest dentist that I've ever visited!  Minor discomfort.  I've had root canals, bridges and many fillings since 2003.  She is patient centered and always mindful to make sure her patients don't experience high levels of pain.  She's referred me to excellent collegues who specialize in gum problems and oral surgery.  THANK YOU DR. MORRIS!  SB

Connie is the most caring dentist I have been to ever.  I hate going to the dentist and can understand all the bad review that can happen simply from this carnal fear.  She has a beautiful office with great parking and immediately puts you at ease.  Her receptionist was absolutely a delight to work with and to be honest I will go no where else but this office.    I'm a smoker and tend to get the lecture everytime from every dentist I have ever been to that its not good for my teeth or mouth or heart or just basically not good in general.  Connie made me aware but didn't make it seem like I was getting a lecture.  It woke me up enough that I decided to stop cold turkey.  Thanks Connie and all your staff!

Five stars is not enough for Dr. Morris and the staff.  They are the best!!!  I have always dreaded dental appts, after some BAD experiences with other dentists.  But not anymore, I have been going to her for about 5 years now.   She tells you everything she is doing as she is doing it as well as reasons why.  She is professional, friendly and most importantly caring.  I have since moved out of the area but refuse to go to any other dentist, to me it is worth the drive from Petaluma to South City.  She was recommended from family and I continue to recommend her to family and friends.

Dr. Morris has been my dentist for years and she is fantastic! She is very informative, patient, painless, friendly and a perfectionist. I have never had any problems with Dr. Morris and highly recommend her to everyone. I have had several root canals by Dr. Morris and they have all been pretty painless. They are root canals! All of the staff are also very friendly and accommodating. I think she is one of the best dentist's around! I will NEVER go to another dentist.
