We live in a time when our affluence keeps us isolated from interconnectedness. Without dependence on each other, our minds can't feel joy. Tune in to hear about how this relates to being a Mom-Dentist in this time, and what you can do about it.
You get up early and prepare yourself with the utmost care to present yourself professionally to your trusting patients.
You nurture your family to get the day launched; breakfast, clothes,
schedule coordination, and backpacks.
You put on your loupes and spend the day with biofluids in your face
and patients’ needs in your ears.
You bend, strain, lead, explain, encourage, worry, sign checks,
and second guess yourself.
You may eat a PopTart for lunch or nothing at all.
You once again feed your family, help with homework, bathe, cuddle, read, and tuck.
You fall asleep reading journal articles only to be awakened by your own thoughts, or a sweet baby’s cry, later on in the night.
Tomorrow you will do it again.
You are a Mom-Dentist.
