ADA Dentist Health and Well-Being Conference Developing Strategies for Building Resilience Through Human Connection and Peer Support (virtual)
August 13 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
The timeliness of this biennial conference is paramount given the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our personal and professional lives. Resilience is an ongoing process that allows us to manage change, adapt to adversity, and bounce back. How do we become more present and resilient not only at work, but at home? How do we begin to reclaim the care we need for ourselves so that we can better care for others? This year’s conference features sessions and speakers focused on building resilience as well as sharing knowledge about the challenges dental professional face in the dental practice environment.
By the end of this conference, you will be able to:
- Identify and discuss best practices and experiences in building individual and organizational resilience.
- Foster resilience through the building of relationships and social connections.
- Learn techniques and tactics to implement in various aspects of life to build one’s own resilience and foster the same in others.
