Description

Dentistry is a unique, fast paced and often stressful profession that can lead to both physical and emotional exhaustion. An estimated 84 percent of dental professionals have reported feeling burnout. It is also suggested that these burnout rates will continue to increase for several reasons, including staff shortages and impacts of the ongoing pandemic. This has resulted in an increase in chronic stress and has led to a large number of dental hygienists choosing to step away from the profession they once loved. We’ll discuss how to recharge our professional batteries and provide suggestions on self-care tools that will improve our mental health during times of professional stress. We will uncover ways we can help combat dental workforce shortages and work better as a team during these staffing challenges. Finally, we will uncover top ten recommendations for reigniting our passion for dentistry and the patient care we provide.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Recognize common work stressors and apply the skills needed to prevent burnout.
  • Evaluate effective self-care tools and decide which tools work best for our individual needs.
  • Identify 10 different ways to step out of the operatory to reignite our excitement and passion for patient care.

Please note: Study Club events are only open to Central Carolina Dental Continuum members.
