Professionalism is often conceived of as a weaving of cognitive and experiential approaches in a way that seems straightforward. This course will introduce attendees to different kinds of cognitive and experiential approaches, namely the mind-body practices of meditation and yoga. Using an inquiry- and evidence-based approach, the instructor will illustrate how the qualities cultivated through these ancient mind-body practices foster many of the principles and philosophies that are essential to the self-care and ethical practice of the dental professional.

  • Identify qualities and principles of the dental professional
