"That's it! I'm DONE"

Strategies and Tactics for Regognizing and Addressing Professional Burnout in the Dental Practice

"That... is... IT! I'm DONE!" How many of you have said those very words? Did you really mean it, or were you just frustrated? How many of you have overheard someone in the breakroom or walking to their car at night saying they are "just done?" Did they have a rough day and that is just the stress talking-or are they starting to show the signs of burnout?

Almost every industry today experiences the tension and pressure brought on by burnout. The dental field is no exception. Lynne Leggett of Victory Dental Management, LLC discusses how burnout does not discriminate and can affect anyone, whether it is a team member or the doctor themselves. If burnout only strikes one person in the office, it impacts everyone. Science is continually discovering evidence of the importance of mental health and how stress impacts our ability to function properly. Stress and burnout have two very different definitions, and they go hand in hand. They both play a negative role in our overall health and well-being.

Burnout can be an emotional rollercoaster. Let's learn how to navigate its hills, valleys, and curves so everyone ends up smiling-and not sick!
