What is Breathwork and Can It Change How We Treat Patients? w/ Dr. Cristian Pavel EP. 13
The Happier Dentist Podcast
Happier Dentist fam! How are you? So.. have you had a patient just sit there in the dental chair looking nervous and anxious and possibly in tears, and you didn’t really know how to respond in a way that would ease their mind? This episode may interest you. Here, we talk about how breathwork is the foundation to good health. Cristians story of his personal journey and inner work led to discovering the beautiful magic of yoga. Through the practice of yoga, it then made an awareness of breathing that elevated his mindfulness practice to eventually beginning his own dental mission trip and breathwork accountability group with his fiance Danielle, and is positively impacting many other once stressed-out dentists. Cristian also talks about the key to happiness, which is having true presence. Having true presence on your yoga mat is one thing, but how about in the noisy and busy dental office setting? I How do you get that? By concentrating on your breath. Also in this episode, how we are basically just a bunch of emotional children just running around. How does this fit into dentistry? By allowing ourselves to explore this side of our beings every now and then to remember that we need to serve ourselves sometimes. Little bit of rest and play never hurt anybody, but sometimes we can forget to schedule it in. So, lets dive into the episode!Find out more about Dr. Cristian Pavel and the Dental Yogi's here: Breathwork Club / Accountability Group here:

Doing dentistry differently with Dr. David Bennett and Dr. Cristian Pavel (DHP194)
The Very Dental Podcast Network
Alan talked with Dr. David Bennett and Dr. Cristian Pavel about their careers and the changes they're making to them as mid-career dentists. Alan got to talk with some amazing folks at the AACD in Chicago last month and today's episode features two of those interviews. By any standard, Dr. David Bennett is an incredibly successful dentist. He's owned multiple practices and has been teaching full mouth rehab and cosmetic dentistry. Yet he felt like something wasn't quite right. He tells a compelling story about practicing the way you want to practice. Dr. Cristian Pavel practices with his father (a dentist) and his mother (office manager). His career was kind of laid out for him, but after meeting Dr. Galen and Davina Detrik, he's changing course. Both of these clinicians are participants in the Detrik's Disruptive Dental Collective. If you're looking for a change...this might be right up your alley!
