I was a guest on the the Relentless Dentist podcast where we discussed the very real and emergent topic of Dental Stress Reduction.

In Episode 1 of this three-part series, we discuss the facts about about Stress in Dentistry.

Quotes & Notes:

  • Jen Butler Inc. (now JB Partners, LLC) is a company that is dedicated to helping dental professionals to reduce stress from working individually with doctors to the office manager or just throughout the whole team.
  • When stress is present in practices, regardless of who has the stress, it is pervasive throughout the office.
  • One thing that is really important to understand is that people see stress as external events, situations or problems. They don’t see it as internal response for something.
  • There are four key indicators that are really unique to the dental office and stress:
    • Having a loss of energy
    • Loss of focus
    • Loss of concentration
    • Forgetfulness

Stress comes out, and it comes out in body language, it comes out in those non-verbals, it comes out in just the way we carry ourselves.

There are three main ways that stress can show itself: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

  • The challenge with a dental office is that when someone is stressed it requires everyone else to pick up the slack.
  • The first step I have with every client is to know your stress.  You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.
  • Be mindful of what we personalize.
  • There are no problems, only opportunities.
