Entergy’s Energy Smart Program Brings Cost Conscious Innovation to New Orleans

Offering comprehensive energy efficiency at no cost to the consumer, Entergy’s Energy Smart program incentivizes Entergy New Orleans customers to perform energy-saving upgrades in...

We formed the partnership in 2017 and the practice was started by Dr. Kramer in 1984.


Q: How were you inspired to start your business? 

- Sponsors -

I wanted to provide superior care and an exceptional experience for patients and was fortunate enough to meet my partner who had the same vision.  Going to the dentist is often a source of anxiety or stress for patients and we try to minimize that by providing excellent preventive care and quality dentistry.


Q: What were the biggest obstacles and how were they overcome? 

Being younger than my business partner and also having 2 small children presented challenges I had never had to face previously and could easily feel like too much newness at once.  I quickly had to learn how to prioritize effectively and delegate the rest.


Q: What local resources have you used?

I have a great group of female dentists I went to dental school with who are all in similar positions and yet not directly competing for the same market.  It is a great network of support and advice. I also get good insight from study clubs.


Q: What is your big focus right now? 

My partner just retired from our practice to teach full time, so I am busier and have more responsibilities than ever before.  The focus is all about balancing that while still providing the best possible care for our patients.


Q: What is the best advice you ever received? 

I’m always willing to hear more advice so maybe I haven’t received it yet.


Q: What success have you had in the last year? 

When my partner told me his plans to retire, I was honored to realize the confidence and trust he placed in me to leave his patients in my hands.
