relay for life of dekalb county

Help Us Raise Money for Relay for Life!

So many people we know and love have been affected by cancer. The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is a fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. The event also honors all families who have had to battle and fight.

Relay for Life of Dekalb County is May 31, 2019 at VFW Fairgrounds.

We need your help with donations! The funds we raise will not only honor survivors and remember loved ones, but will also help give resources to cancer patients and their families. This could mean free rides to chemo appointments or free places to stay for patients. This also funds a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.

This year, Dr. Aimee Skelton and the team decided to support cancer research as much as we can. If you are not able to make it to the event, you can also donate online! Click HERE to access our Relay for Life team – we would be honored to have your donation and are excited to impact lives as we spread smiles for miles and miles.

You can donate online and in office! If you are interested in participating in the event, click HERE for more info!

continuing education

Continuing Education for Dental Professionals

Continuing education is important for dental professionals to better serve patients. Dr. Skelton is committed to helping experts in our community complete their required continuing certification each year.

To help professionals in the area, Dr. Aimee Skelton and Nashville Dental sponsored an event on October 12, 2018, titled, How to Wow! Your Patients and Team. This event included a three-hour lecture from Gary Johnson, M.A., MBA, on how to wow patients and team members. During this time, Gary shared ways to provide impressive customer service that creates favorable word-of-mouth from patients. The lecture also included a CPR certification by the Fort Payne Fire Department. Together, our goal is to give patients the best experience at each visit no matter what practice they choose.

Who is Gary Johnson?

Gary Johnson has over 20 years of senior leadership and sales experience. He holds two graduate degrees in business and has led multiple companies to double-digit sales growth even in difficult financial times. Gary has helped coach and train over 1,000 companies, ranging in size from as small as five employees to as large as 1,000.

Gary has delivered over 500 speeches and workshops in the last five years on business development, setting and achieving goals, team building, customer service, and leadership. In addition, his book, Wowed!, released on February, 2018, to rave reviews. Tom Ziglar (Zig Ziglar’s son and CEO of Ziglar, Inc.), Terry Paulson, world-renowned speaker and psychologist, and world-famous Dr. David Sarver, just to name a few, endorsed his book.
