Are The Dentists OK? With Dr. David Galler
Are you unhappy as a dentist? If so, you are not alone! Many are unhappy in their practices even though our profession is such a beautiful profession! In this episode, I welcome Dr. David Galler, DMD who has transformed thousands of lives through Invisalign and as the leader and instructor of Reingage, a network of thousands of dentists committed to improving the lives of patients through Invisalign and advanced alignment techniques. We discuss how powerful a smile is, how alignment can change lives, some theories on why dentists are unhappy, and how we need to have the proper mindset in our careers.
I always tell other dental practice owners to start your day thinking how and who you can help … We can all improve the lives of our patients by offering them what we know how to do. Alignment can be an integral part of proper treatment for many patients and is something to be valued. In this episode, we delve into what a difference it can make in many people’s lives!
We also discuss how we all, as dentists and practice owners, face many of the same fears and anxieties. For example, we seem to all have the pressure to constantly “do more,” whether that is opening more offices, upgrading to the latest equipment, working to treat more and more patients, or countless other ways that we aren’t ever “doing enough.” It’s time to change that way of thinking! Our feelings come from our thoughts. If we want to be happy, it starts with being aware of what is going on in our minds. This episode can help you change your mindset; listen now to hear some great advice and suggestions to feel good about your work and your practice!
