With many dental students home for Winter Break this week, we should discuss stress. Dentistry is a stressful occupation, but dental school is an extremely stressful time in a young professional’s life. A student recently asked how to handle the stress.

My advice is to stop caring so much.

Dental school is just one part of your life and while it can seem all-consuming, it’s important to realize that while becoming a dentist or being a dentist is a big part of your life, it is not your entire life. While stressful, dental school is certainly not worth neglecting those who you care about or who care about you. Just my 2 cents.

If you’re a student, enjoy the break – it’s well deserved. If you are practicing, I hope you have some time-off scheduled. If you’re looking for CE this time of year, Dr. Paul Goodman has a great deal running on Embrasure Space right now (see the video below for details).

Remember, this is the last week to use the coupon code OLT2018 to save 15% off Dr. Travis Campbell’s Understanding Dental Insurance and PPOs.

Happy Holidays.
