RANDOLPH, NJ- For professionals who make their living helping others achieve positive corrective changes, seeing the finished product always brings the greatest satisfaction.  The doctors and staff at Barrish and Lehnes Orthodontics were lucky enough to see their handy work all in one place recently, when they hosted a bowling party for patients and their families.

“The best part of my job is seeing my patients’ reaction as their smile transforms from a point of insecurity to one of pride and confidence,” said Dr. Kevin Lehnes, who evidently has another talent as he registered an “unofficial count” of six strikes on the night. Lehnes continued, “It was unbelievably rewarding to see so many of our patients in one place.”

Dr. Bernard Barrish added, “Seeing all those patients at our bowling event was exciting and rewarding. Their attendance served as an affirmation of our family oriented practice philosophy.”

That family philosophy was evident specifically with a mother and former patient Dana who was there with her children.  She explained, “Dr. Barrish did my braces, and I wouldn’t take my kids anyplace else. Dr. Barrish and Dr. Lehnes are perfectionists.”

The party drew quite a crowd, with over 60 people bowling and eating pizza, while some even walked away with raffle prizes.  One young female patient Heather said, “My favorite part of the evening was meeting new people,” while two boys Jason and Luke both agreed, “Hanging out with friends and eating lots of pizza” was the best part of their night.

Both Barrish and Lehnes take tremendous pride and satisfaction in their choice of profession, and strive to make their patients comfortable while keeping their best interests at heart.  

One parent, Mr. Cummings explained, “I love the way they interact with patients.  They are great with kids, I liked them from the moment I met them.”  Another parent, Laura, said, “They were recommended to me by several people.  I now know why, because you can count on them to be there whenever you need something.”

Kids of course, have their own reasons for liking the practice, as Zain said excitedly, “My favorite part about the doctors is their sense of humor.  They make me laugh, and it’s great because now I love my smile.”

When asked why he chose this field for his life’s work, Barrish said, “I absolutely love my profession. I enjoy the fact that we make such a difference in so many people’s lives by helping to give them beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.”

Lehnes feels similar, explaining his passion for what he does by stating, “I always knew I wanted a career where I could interact directly with people and have a positive impact on their lives.”

When discussing prospective new patients visiting the office, both doctors where clear to point out how important it was for them, when dealing with new patients, to spend time thoroughly informing them about their dental issues, and explaining clearly what orthodontics can help them achieve.

As the night drew to a close, Dr. Lehnes reflected on the evening, stating, “I couldn’t get over how much fun all the kids had. What they don’t know, is that I probably had more fun watching them, than they had bowling.”

The practice has been a staple business in Randolph since 1975, serving the town and surrounding community from their location on Rt 10 East in the heart of Randolph where they welcome patients of all ages.
