          I think one of the big problems that we have as dentists is that our purpose in life is to be the best dentist in the world. Our purpose in life is to be a dentist. That is our problem. And that’s why so many of us suffer. Because when you align your purpose in life with something that is bound to fail there’s going to be an open contact or open margin, that your entire self-worth drops with that.- Dr. Kyle Stanley

            So, dentistry is really beautiful. You get to be paid to help people. Never forget the privilege it is to be able to serve other people. And when you make it about yourself and you start over obsessing about yourself, you lose fulfillment and purpose. So, if you're in a burnout stage, focus on everything around you. If you feel less appreciated, give appreciation. Whatever you want more of in life, give it away first. – Dr. Craig Spodak

         The father-son relationship, or father-daughter relationship, the mentor that you have, and a parent of any sort is nothing more than a relationship. But if you don’t have it you also have friends that you can choose, you can create. Surround yourself with people that are going to give you those relationships and then foster those relationships. - Dr. Trey Tippit
