During quarantine, I found myself spending a lot of time in my stunning Dental Soiree space, creating online courses like Dental Brand Bootcamp and Get Social School, as well as launching the podcast Dental Confidential. With dentists stuck at home and uncertain of what to do next, I saw an opportunity to help and dove in headfirst, learning everything from scratch.
As my creative ideas were flowing, my mind was also occupied by something else. One night during quarantine, I had an incredibly detailed dream about Charleston, South Carolina, a place I had never been to before. The dream was so vivid that it stayed with me, and the following night, I dreamed of it again. I shared my experience with my husband, who coincidentally had been browsing Charleston golf courses online as he is a professional golf instructor. We had never talked about Charleston before, and I couldn't ignore what seemed like three signs pointing us to take action. I knew we had to get on a plane and explore this dreamy location...and so that is exactly what we did.
Soon after, we were in Charleston and by chance we pulled into the one available parking spot along King Street. Conveniently located across the street from a stunning space for rent. My creative mind started to race with the idea of opening a second White Haute Teeth Whitening Bar. Of course, White Haute Deux! It made sense to me, two locations, one in Chicago and one in Charleston. In a state of dreamy excitement, I posted a picture of it on my personal Instagram page. Not even five minutes later I received a DM from a female dentist in Chicago with the ask, “Oh my gosh, are you selling Sugar Fix Dental Loft and relocating?” My initial reaction was a resounding NO !! I had a successful 7 figure practice working seeing patients under 24 hours a week with an awesome team and it was still growing. Why in the world would I sell what I’ve worked so hard to build over all of these years?
But I couldn’t help my deeper intuition. The universe was directing my destiny in a different direction. I met with the dentist who had inquired about purchasing my practice and I immediately knew that she was meant to carry on the legacy of the practice, while I embarked on my next adventure in Charleston. I like to call the meeting of Sugar Fix's new owner, a serendipitous love story- she's like my soul sister!
