“I would highly recommend this book - you will need your own personal copy though to get the most out of it, as you scribble your own thoughts down and emerge with a set of everyday strategies that should rewire your thinking and help you enjoy this wonderful career of dentistry more fully.”
“Exceptionally well written, organized, presented, and timely, “Resilience and Well-being for Dental Professionals” is essential reading for anyone working in dentistry and should be considered an important textbook for supplemental dentistry curriculum reading lists...” Resilience and Well- being for Dental Professionals” is a critically important and unreservedly recommended for professional, college, and university library Dentistry collections.”
“Something to finally help me manage my anxiety and help me thrive in my dental career!... I am delighted to finally have a wonderful book that outlines practical steps professionals can implement in daily life.”
“Wonderful resource and valuable for dental professionals”
"Wow, I’m absolutely blown away by this book. I enjoyed Mind Ninja’s Mind Flossing Toolkit but this is on another level. There’s so much in here that everyone in dentistry and beyond needs to know and it’s all backed up with evidence. This is essential reading for those in dentistry."
“Game changer for dental health professionals!”
"Such a fantastic resource for anyone working in dentistry! Unfortunately, most dental professionals will experience levels of stress and potential burnout at some point in our careers. This book guides you, the reader, through exercises that help build resilience and mental well-being to last throughout your dental career. A must for all dental professionals!!"
"I'm so glad I found this book, it's already having a massive impact on my outlook as a dentist. I really love that it's really practical with lots of worksheets which I can write in and start to practice on a day to day basis. In particular I really enjoyed the concept of a mind gym. We definitely feel comfortable training our bodies and discussing it regularly however a taboo remains with exploring the mind with the same rigour. I tried the stress management techniques at work today and I found learning how to unhook from some of my negative thoughts really helpful. All dental teams should have a copy as this is not something taught at uni even though stress and bouts of depression are common in dentistry. Thanks Mahrukh for introducing this for us!"
"A masterpiece that all dentists at any stage of their career must have. A key book to practice dentistry in the best atmosphere possible."
