We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Mahmood and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sara, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Recently, while I was doing a ride on my Peloton Bike, my instructor said something that really resonated with me. She said “consistency is my power.” It made me really reflect on how every single day my team and I show up with the same core mission in mind: to provide dentistry with integrity. We make the decision consistently to provide the highest quality care in an environment that’s supportive, kind, compassionate, and filled with love. When I came up with idea for brush365 so many years ago, there were good days and bad days. Encouraging days… and not so encouraging days. But consistency was my power. Showing up every day even when I didn’t want to was my power. Staying the course was my power.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I built brush365 with the customer experience in mind. I observed a trend of lack of trust in dental providers and I tackled that head on by creating a tagline and absolute promise to provide “Dentistry with Integrity.” But that wasn’t far reaching enough. As I began practicing, I quickly realized that most people work traditional hours from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Those people deserved the opportunity to receive high quality care at times that wouldn’t require them to take off of work, use a sick/PTO day, or have to pick their kids up early from school. That’s why all of my practices offer evening and weekend availability. The journey to this point has definitely not been easy. But it’s been rewarding. Rosa Parks once said, “I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” I know what needs to be done to create and flourish my brand. So during hard times, being laser focused on the bigger vision helps me stay the course.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This is a great question! I spent so much of my adult life living and going to school in the heart of Deep Ellum. If you had asked me this question just a few years ago, my list would go on and on with restaurants and museums and cool exhibits in Dallas proper. But I’ve been spending the last several years living the burb life…and I gotta say that I really do love it! I live in Frisco which has some really cool spots like eight|11, The Star, the new Railway District, and a more recent addition that we really enjoy is III Forks! We’re also close enough to Plano and Mckinney to enjoy restaurants in Legacy West like True Food or North Italia and Historic Downtown Mckinney where our favorite place to eat is Rye. Literally everywhere we’ve gone out in recent months has taken COVID19 precautions seriously and we always feel safe!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
For as far back as I can remember, I’ve had ambitions that made my own family wonder if I was borderline insane. But they supported me nonetheless. I’ve always wanted to do it all, be everything, lead, empower, grow, succeed. I’m grateful to have this platform to specifically thank the people who have allowed me to live such a fulfilled and ambitious life.
