A Day of Wellness

October 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


October 8, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Take charge of your wellbeing plus earn clinical CE! The CDA and MDDS are bringing a myriad of professional wellness leaders together for A Day of Wellness. This one-day retreat was designed by dentists for dentists to help you revive your long-lasting positive health and give you better practice outcomes.

This immersive experience will start with a 45-minute yoga session to address the specific musculoskeletal needs inherent to practicing dentistry, destress through breathing and movement, and improve your physical condition.

Next, join Dr. Nicholas Studhome, doctor of chiropractic, and get comfortable as you learn tips and specific stretches to minimize the damage done by the dental chair, to maximize efficiency, to reduce the occurrence and severity of musculoskeletal disorders, and to practice pain-free.

Science has shown that mindfulness-based stress reduction reduces healthcare costs and improves productivity and happiness. In Everyday Mindfulness: From Chaos to Calm In A Crazy World learn seven simple applied practices from Holly Duckworth that you can do just about anywhere to get through even your most challenging days.
