This workshop presents a science-based framework for achieving Everyday Excellence and sustainable wellbeing in the field of Dentistry. Based on empirically validated theories of wellbeing, participants will be introduced to the foundational Pillars of Wellbeing: attention, connection, intentional daily action, self-determination, and reflection. A key focus of the workshop is on Microsteps, scientifically proven techniques for habit formation and behavior change. These incremental actions, supported by research, have been shown to yield both immediate and enduring benefits to participants' professional and personal lives. Practical tools, such as the "Internal Mirror," will be provided to facilitate self-reflection and regulation. Participants will be encouraged to establish Microsteps tailored to their unique circumstances, fostering tangible progress towards their professional and personal goals.

Learning outcomes

Join us for an evidence-based exploration of how integrating these pillars and Microsteps into your daily practice can lead to sustained excellence and enhanced wellbeing in the demanding field of Dentistry.
