Helping New-ish Dentists Pick Up Dropped Nachos
A guide for recent dental school graduates
In football and dentisting, it is easy for even the most well-trained dentist and team to drop passed nachos. Dentisting is an emotional roller coaster and “running behind schedule” happens. Maybe you have experienced something like this once – or everyday as a dentist.
Open wider, Millie! That’s the opposite of wider.
You are closed now, Millie. You want to miss the lunch at the senior center? I didn’t think so.
It’s Sloppy Joe day. They still make those?
Well, you open and I will try not to drop this teensy #15 zirconia top hat I am trying to cement on your tiny tooth stump.
Did I say that part out loud? I meant. I love being a dentist. It is incredibly rewarding to try to control saliva at the deepest part of the oral cavity.
Oh and you have #16 in there too. Fun times, Mill.
There are many great parts of being a dentist. There are many difficult parts of being a dentist too. These both seem heightened when you are a new dentist. You’ve just learned so much and then all of a sudden you have to actually do it?!
So I teamed up with Dr. Ashley Dawson to create a CE webinar that would help navigate these challenges and rewards for a new-ish dentist.
