VIRAL: Dentist office staffer dances and lip-syncs with patients
CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - Tracy Driver has been producing weekly videos for the dentistry practice she works for, for more than a year.
Last year she came up with an idea to produce a weekly video segment called 'Monday Bites' for the Patricia London DDS Facebook page. The segment features Driver, often with willing patients, lip-syncing and dancing to popular songs.
On Jan. 1 the office posted a compilation of 'Monday Bites' videos. Driver and the rest of the team were ecstatic when the video got more than 10,000 views on Facebook.
Then a few days later, Dr. Patricia London herself noticed the video was getting a lot more traction.
"The next morning it was a million and then we sat there and watched it go from 2 million to 3 million," Dr. London said.
The video now has more than 25 million views on Facebook and has been shared all over the world.
"We've had comments from Peru, Germany, Greece. It's just crazy," Driver said.
Driver has worked for Dr. London for more than 20 years, but has known her all her life.
The two are sisters.
Driver, who actually works in the front of the office dealing with patient insurance, has received accolades from both her co-workers and clients.
While her weekly videos are really just an effort to show clients that a dentist office can be fun, Driver has gotten messages on Facebook from all over the world, explaining that her most recent video changed their lives with laughter.
"I really don't have words for it, because I just would expect someone to take the time to write something so kind," Driver said.
One of the 'thank you' messages includes a woman who stated she'd been in a deep depression after losing her son. The 'Monday Bites' compilation video brought much needed laughter into her life.
That's something both Driver and her sister/boss are grateful for.
"I'm very proud of her," Dr. London said, "She's taken a little idea and just run with it."
