Strengthen your Communication to Strengthen your Practice
Communication Specialist JoAnn Lauterbach will discuss the most common communication challenges faced by the membership of Women in Dentistry. Visit Women in Dentistry’s closed forum at www.vate/ca/forum to share the toughest communication challenge you’ve faced in your practice. JoAnn will work with a few examples to teach you how to apply the CPR strategy to better navigate these difficult conversations in the future.
Words count! JoAnn will ask you to examine the language choices you routinely make in the daily interactions in your practice. You will become aware of the impact your language choices have on your ability to communicate effectively with your both your clients and colleagues. Be sure to bring your smartphone with you to the event so you can take part in a special interactive exercise.
Finally, you will learn how to reinforce your confident language choices by projecting confident presence. JoAnn will examine the role body language, eye contact and voice play in our ability to communicate effectively.

Mindfulness and Dentistry – What’s the Science Behind it and How Can it Help you?
Mindfulness is the new black. We see this word everywhere and its definition is quite simple: paying attention in the present moment non-judgementally.
Burnout is also the new black. It is a fashionable word for a very serious problem caused by too much stress and not enough coping mechanisms.
Chaotic days aren’t the new anything. Dentists are often faced with chaotic days filled with double booked patients, hygiene checks, emergency appointments, management of anxious patients, managing staff and bills to pay while striving to produce “perfect” work in a small window of time.
How can Mindfulness help? How can being more present in our crazy lives help decrease stress? This lecture will share the science that supports Mindfulness and how being more present in our day to day lives can allow for reduction of stress, increase in self compassion, decreasing the chance of burnout and finding more balance at work and home all the while improving productivity.
