It's deeper than dentistry.

Mental health & wellness forum for dentists that helps you find your happy.

about us

The Happy Dentist Daily

I created this forum to re-examine the space you’re in beyond the confines of your clinical practice. We all have our own, individual paths, with very different obstacles. But that’s not to say that we are alone in it.

With small steps and the right community, we can all step into our most optimal lives.

This is a resource for your personal growth and expansion. It is a space where you can take off your provider hat and take care of yourself.

Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or east; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them."
