It might seem a bit strange that a dental blog would include reviews of books related to mindfulness and meditation. Dentistry is such a stressful profession, resulting in a scarily high burnout, depression and suicide rate. I believe that it is paramount that we look after ourselves emotionally, physically and mentally. If we don't then what chance do we have of giving our patients the best possible care? I think the practice of mindfulness has great potential in terms of improving our wellbeing. That is why my golden circle as discussed on my "about me" page mentions mental and physical health as well as the oral health of my patients.
Sharing my experiences of the benefits of having a TV in the surgery and various ways you can use it to show photos and videos to patients as well as making the surgery a nicer place to be.
