Fourth, in my series of families in business, will catch you by surprise I think. Not only have I met a young man who joined his father’s dental practice six years ago but I also met – another member of the family – sort of.
I am of course talking about Dr. Clay Weisberg and his beloved dog, Boots. Boots is a Portugese Water Dog who was born on March 7 – imagine that – a Pisces, just like me – I like him even more. Clay and Boots are both very interesting and friendly and just as sweet as they can be but I probably should tell you about Clay first, huh?
If you visit the website of the Weisberg’s dental practice and take a look at Dr. Clay’s credentials and all the groups he is a member of, it would be easy to think of him as an over-achiever. If you were to dig a little deeper what you would find is a young man who is passionate about the profession he has chosen and a desire to excel in that career. Not only that but by having included Boots in his life and training him as a therapy dog, you are suddenly aware of Clay’s love of people and a compelling need to help others.
Dr. Clay grew up in his dad’s office (like so many children of entrepreneurs) and he loved the experience. Not only did he attend the more obvious schools for someone of his caliber (Norfolk Academy, Brown University, Medical College of Virginia and then his post -doctoral degree at the University of Florida) he also had the opportunity to study abroad at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. This was an amazing opportunity for Clay especially since he is an avid kite boarder.Australianot only provided an exceptional education but also was an awesome place for this young man to enjoy his favorite pastime. Clay says that kite boarding helps bring balance to his life. And I’m sure Boots would agree because when they are not working at the dental practice they love to be at the beach, kite boarding for Clay and paddle boarding or playing fetch for Boots.
What an adorable pair they are. Clay’s disarming smile will put you at ease immediately and Boots sweet manner will make you feel at home right away.
Visit them for all your dental needs. Be sure to ask about the arrangement we have made with them for a portrait session from my studio and teeth whitening from this friendly and amazing dental practice that is a great reflection of families in business today.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Clay Weisberg and had the opportunity to meet Boots while doing so. When we discussed a portrait session for this blog post I knew it simply had to include Boots. Enjoy the video of Dr. Clay Weisberg and his wonderful dog, Boots.
