Join Dawn as she retraces her transformative journey where mindfulness, positive psychology, and neuroscience converged to uncover how cultivating happiness can reshape your dental career, empowering you to overcome challenges and find genuine fulfillment. Harness science-backed tools to rewire your mind and embrace a more joyful and purposeful path in dentistry.
