Practicing dental hygiene in 2020 has been eye-opening, to say the least. I’ve personally experienced increased migraines, brain fog, chronic fatigue, and increased anxiety. Many of these symptoms can be linked to the respirators; however, I recently have experienced ringing in my ears after clinical days. When I started to recap the days, I realized my air purifier and high-speed suction have become my new normal on an hourly basis. The more aware I became, the more I realized that everyone around me seemed to be yelling: patients yelling through their masks, team members struggling to hear their patients through the glass dividers or face shields, and clinicians shouting to communicate with their patients over the deafening sounds of the dental office. Clinical studies demonstrate that the occupational noise of a dental office can lead to permanent hearing damage.
October is not only National Dental Hygiene Month; it is also Mental Health Awareness Month. This year has challenged all of us in many ways, and a global pandemic has the potential to have multiple negative effects on one’s emotional and physical health. The CDC reports that anxiety was three times higher than normal in June 2020, while depression was four times higher.~~1There are so many unknowns in our world, it becomes overwhelming if you do not have the right coping strategies. As the winter months approach and communities continue to further restrictions, we must understand the warning signs for depression and mental health illness—not only for patients but for ourselves and our community.

The average dental practice is 10 to 15 years behind the science. We can identify oral and systemic diseases at its earliest stages. Yet, we operate in our comfort zones, allowing the past failures of integrating a new system to dictate our ability to see new opportunities. It is time to remove our excuses for why wecan not implement the latest technologies and change the culture of dentistry. To practice at our fullest potential, we need healthy work environments with full team collaboration.
Change the practice culture from the inside out is not an overnight process.However, when it is achieved dental clinicians can truly save the lives of patients and prevent the progression of diseases. I specialize in changing the workplace culture and reigniting the passion of clinicians through customized protocols to integrate the latest science into your everyday workflow. I enable your business to thrive by coaching multi-generational teams to work in harmony through on-demand courses,virtual calls, and in-person events.

"I've been a practicing dental hygienist for 49 years, been to hundreds of lectures and yet, today's lecture was one of my favorites. Yes, the subject matter was one of great interest to me, but it was Amber herself, that touched me. Her smile was infectious, her knowledge of the subject matter was great, but it was her personality that made me hang on to her every word. She spoke about being genuine to your patients, to let them know that you really care......that's how she made me feel, unlike other speakers I've heard. Thank you Amber, wished it could have been a longer presentation. "

Amber exceeded our entire teams expectations with her on site clinical coaching. With Amber's help we were able to increase our hygiene department production by over 45% in 12 months. Most importantly, we have elevated our patient care and we are proud to add new patients to our practice each week.
Amber inspired me to think outside the box, take massive action to achieve my career goals, and supported me along the way. Working with Amber has allowed me to expand my roles for traditional RDH to a Public Health Dental Hygienist.
