Dental professionals are in a high risk group of contracting the coronavirus due to the nature of their job. Many dental practices all over the world need to make changes to their way of working to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, to protect the patients and employees and to guarantee that they won’t run out of e.g. face masks in the next months to come.
I would like to know, what changes you have made in your work place and how the coronavirus has affected your practice.
I want to share your story. The story can be long or short. Only thing I would like you to include in your story is the country you are working (as I have readers in every continent). Only your story and the country will be published. Your story might help your colleague on the other side of the world. So please share your story!
You can use the contact form below to send your story or you can write an email and send it to dentalrevelations(a)gmail.com.
Are you ready for my next post after my sabbatical? If you are still there waiting for me to write again, I thank you for being patient. To be honest, I do not have more time in my hands than before but I have decided to make an effort to write every once in a while.
A revelation to reward you for your loyalty. I am still in the dental business even though I would love to spend my time solely on writing. It is my passion. I must say that I have had a difficult year of ups and downs. Highs and lows. Times when I believe in myself and times when I have lost all the self-confidence. I have realised that I have an impostor syndrome which tries to demolish all my achievements by persistently telling me
Who are you kidding?You’ve achieved nothing! Shame you if you even think so!
This syndrome keeps on reminding me that I did not get feedback on my achievement from THAT particular person I so much admire, and making me forget I got feedback from ten other people who are as important as that one person.
But I’m working on it. I am trying to remind myself that in this world of haste and demands, I am good enough. As mother, as wife, as dental professional, as writer and most importantly as myself. Being merciful to yourself is a difficult skill to master. But I am learning.
So, watch this space. There might be something coming up soon!
While I am still not active with blogging (but hopefully will be soon), Dental Revelations Blog is open for guest bloggers. Mind you, I am quite picky and have allowed only one guest post so far. Will you be the next one?
