HARD TIMES GREAT TIMES

Recently I read an article written by  an industry leader.  It touched me so deeply that I had to share just a part of it with you. I don’t know where you are or what you are doing, I don’t know whether this message resonates with you or just passes you by.  What I do know is that this is a time unlike any other in our lifetime, it is…

WELCOME

The central theme of my work both clinically and academically has been the study and treatment of stress from a dental perspective. While treatment was aimed very much at structural integrity and its impact on the system, I also  looked at stress from other viewpoints and found ways of benefiting my patients either through my own work or by referral. Running through the work on this blog you will notice…

THRIVING IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE

The concept of stepping out of our comfort zone, has been used as a way of helping us embrace risk and make changes in our lives that can lead to real personal growth.

IT’S AS IF YOU KNOW ME

A few days before I retired from Dentistry one of my patients said  — ‘It’s as if you know me’ This comment came because I had given her a book to read after her first visit.
