  • “Self-worth forms the foundation of our identity and influences our thoughts, emotions, and actions, shaping our perception of deservingness and significance as individuals.”
  • “Confidence in leadership is essential for dental practice owners to effectively lead their teams and establish trust and respect.”
  • “Appreciating your skills and talents as a dentist is important for self-worth, understanding that they positively contribute to the people you serve.”
  • “Maintaining a growth mindset allows dentists to view mistakes as learning opportunities rather than blows to self-worth.”
