Monday Huddle: Who’s giving dentists bad advice?

Feb. 17, 2023
Where are you getting your information? From “mentors” on social media? You may be sabotaging your growth with bad advice. Here’s how to stay safe and get good info.

I have strong opinions about listening to the wrong “mentors” on social media. You should be seeking information—not affirmation. But sometimes misinformation comes from people a lot closer to you. It’s not because they intend to, but because they don’t know better.

  • Your significant other might be the principal culprit in giving misinformation.
  • Your parents are likely second worst.
  • Friends … they may mean well …

But unless these people are totally dentally and financially up to date, let your better half stay your better half, and love your parents as parents. If you’re a seasoned pro and willing, please help young dental professionals. If you’re new to the game and have questions, ask! We want to help.
