I was fired for telling the truth and that’s OK

Back in high school, when I was working at my local Wendy’s, I learned a big lesson about living what’s most important to me. One day a customer ordered a Frosty then changed their mind, so I was told to throw it away. Instead, some friends and I went in the back and ate it. We didn’t think it was any big deal. 

Read my blog on DEW Life. I talk about how what seemed to be a traumatic moment became a positive experience in changing my life.

The Positive Power of Conflict

published in Dental Economics

Running a successful dental practice is about more than being a great dentist, but what does a successful dental practice actually look like to you? Is it a practice that is thriving financially? One with satisfied patients who actually look forward to maintaining their oral health in partnership with you and your team? Where your team (including you) is cohesive, productive, and happy to come to work every day? These are not mutually exclusive concepts—in fact, a truly successful practice relies on these interdependent components being equally healthy.

The Dentist’s Dilemma

Dentists entered a healing profession that demands high standards of technical expertise, for which we spent years training. Then we discovered that training wasn’t enough to be successful. We also must be team leaders, business managers, marketers, counsellors, debt collectors, and much more. As a result, even though many of us are exceptional clinicians, technologists, surgeons, and more, we struggle with the business of being exceptional practice managers.

There are many reasons for this. Some are skills-based and other reasons are more fundamental, such as typology or personality type, habitual group dynamics learned from as far back as childhood, or a lack of emotional intelligence. These can be the result of overly focusing on skills and academics, or because stress and burnout force us to disconnect emotionally from our patients and practice in order to survive.
