If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. Your passion will lead you right to your purpose. 

In this episode, Dr. Stephanie Stoddart joins Dr. Eric Block to discuss how living with a purpose can help you navigate from dentistry-related burnout, the pros and cons of the DSO world, and details about the Ban Burnout Summit!

Dr. Stoddart believes that as a dentist working in a high phased environment, at one point, she experienced burnout because she lost sight of her vision, she forgot why she was doing what she was doing, and she was not being true to herself. 

Dr. Stephanie Stoddart became a dentist to make a visible change in the lives of others because she didn’t have dental care growing up in Jamaica. One of her greatest joys in practicing has been providing dental care to thousands of children in underserved communities. Dr. Stoddart has completed her Healthcare MBA, and she has Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (ICGB) Certification to make her dental office more successful. She constantly negotiates for better employment terms for her team members and seeks to create a vibrant environment where everyone feels at home. Dr. Stoddart is also a wife and mom of 3 boys. So she understands the working parent juggle and is on a mission to help people fight for the balance people need and deserve. 

Listen to this episode and find out how being aligned with your purpose can help you ban burnout from your professional life!
