Whats good Happier Dentist fam! Having a great week so far?
Today, we discuss burnout and how it affects our state of mind and the way we show up as a dentist. This leads to other areas of our lives, whether that means as a mother or father, a team leader, a partner, you name it.
Our guest Dr. Jessica Metcalfe (@alchemistdentist) shares her journey of someone who has gone through the multiple stages of burnout that dentists often endure and gives us permission to just take a pause when stress begins to creep up, and also to have some humor in our lives so we can be true to ourselves while at work.
Dr. Metcalfe understands "Imposter Phenomenon" and even Perfectionism is a common experience for dentists to have and has been helping dentists through a variety of platforms with easy and actionable advice on how to prevent or counteract what this can do to our mental health.
