This topic will be a series of episodes. This episode Jasmin, Carrie, and Michelle get real and personal.
MOMgienists is very thankful to have had Carrie Ibbetson Host of Healthy Mouth and Healthy Life Podcast and Michelle Strange (honorary MOMgienist) Host of A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast a part of the show. They are brilliant and successful women that show that we can support one another as we achieve excellence in our industry.
Disclaimer: MOMgienists supports all roles in dentistry including Dental Assistants, Dental Technicians, Dentists, and of course our fellow Dental Hygienists (doesn't matter what program you graduate from!). It's important to understand that as a culture we thrive on shame, fear, and lack of vulnerability (google Brene Brown). Until we talk about the tough stuff and make all accountable for shameful behavior we will never thrive in our culture. Start the bullying conversation NOW!!
