Empowering Dentists With the Tools They Need to Build a Robust Leadership and Drive Change!
Manuela Soares Rodrigues and Jorge André Cardoso joined on a podcast to reflect on both the challenges and beauty of dentistry as a profession and its impact on one's life’s, hopes and dreams.
When you look from the outside in, you might see 2 dentists who have confidence and clarity about delivering their best dentistry, creating a schedule and working with a team.
Well, we have to laugh because even though we have learned the skills and implemented systems… that certainly didn’t happen overnight, and we made many mistakes.
It took us the last 20 years in dentistry – but we’ve cracked the code. We enjoy working in Dentistry!
And now we are sharing our behind-the-scenes processes so you can finally practice the dentistry you dream about.
Conscious Leadership in Dentistry Programme is an intensive learning experience that will enhance your leadership capabilities and empower you to negotiate balance among all areas of life that are important to you.
Over the course of three immersive days you will explore how your identity shapes your experience, practice of daily dentistry and leadership. You will dig deep into what it takes to show up as a dentist with your whole authentic self, and how the dynamics of your working environment can help or hinder your effectiveness as a dentist.
You will also have the opportunity to connect to an exclusive community of peers that will inspire and support you.
A Dentistry where you’re working ON it instead of FOR it… focusing on doing the work that lights you up and moves your career forward.
We want to see empowered Dentists supported in making wise changes in their systems.
And no ❌ you don’t need to be a clinic owner (or to want to own a clinic) to make it happen.
Say bye-bye to task and hello to creative, impact-driving work you dreamed about during your university years.
You know that your everyday Dentistry practice “should” be more organized to see the type of growth you want.
But what most Dentists are missing... Organized dentistry and self-awareness of feelings, speech, and actions, as well as of the situations.
You read it right. Dentistry can feel so. much. easier.
And to prove it to you, we want to invite you to our 3 days immersive course, Conscious Leadership in Dentistry.
In it, we’ll be sharing the skills and the systems to put in place to run your everyday dentistry in the background allowing you to fully step into a visionary role as a dentist.
Systems keep you organized – with way less effort. This means your time is freed up to focus on the important and revenue-generating tasks you love.
Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence will bring you excellency!
Dentistry that feels 100% less overwhelming and 100% more fun.
And these systems, techniques and skills are built around YOUR EVERYDAY DENTISTRY PRACTICE that you already have.
We want this to be a very practical course for you because when your days run smoother, dentists relax and get their time, flexibility and creativity back.
And when dentists spend their work hours focusing on the tasks they enjoy, their profit will rise, therefore.
More time back. More revenue. And a job you enjoy.
Conscious Leadership in Dentistry
A behind the scenes at our top systems and skills to reclaim confidence, clarity, and control back to your dentistry practice.
Wouldn't it be amazing to get a feeling of accomplishment in your days rather than feeling like you are running around with your hair on fire?
Whatever your WHY: This course can help you feel in control of your dentistry practice in a sustainable way year after year.
After 20 years of Dentistry, we can confidently say – soft skills got us where we are today.
Without them, well let’s just say this ship wouldn’t have been able to set sail in the same ways.
Many dentists focus mostly on the technical competencies but often forget what are the underlying competencies that make their days (and practice) running smoothly – human skills.
Soft skills and systems are the secret to being more efficient and stress-less in your dentistry while meeting, reaching, and exceeding your goals.
They’re the blueprint you need to run your everyday dentistry efficiently and with clarity.
And they are essential to releasing the stuck and stifled feeling that shows up when you find yourself working in stress.
If you are willing to invest 3 days, we are excited to invite you to learn our effective systems so you can reclaim time, money and confidence in your dentistry – day in and day out.
If you possess a strong drive to develop leadership skills and engage in personal growth this course is for you!

I'm passionate about empowering dentists and helping them to manage stress and to live a happier, more balanced life. Over the last few years, I've taken Mindfulness to the dental office with a reputable mindfulness program that is designed with dentistry in mind, and that better fits dentist’s needs.

“I learn, I try and I think about stuff and how to make it simple, logical and compelling enough so I can teach it. I´ve been doing this in interdisciplinary esthetic dentistry for 20 years. I´ve had my share of successes by publishing articles, books chapters and lecturing internationally, got some prizes, university positions and felt fulfilling recognition between peers. To do this, I had to run my own practice that now has more than a dozen people. Dealing with and learning about people - patients, students, clinical and teaching teams - I made enough mistakes, had to learn a lot about myself and how we all function together. By sharing what I learned in both the clinical and management sides I want dentistry to be in the patient’s best interest and for dentists to feel free, fulfilled and have fun.”

If you have further questions about the Conscious Leadership in Dentistry Course, we’d be happy to answer them.
“As Dentists we are extremely focused on clinical practice and forget about the essentials to maintain our own mental health from a human, administrative, management, etc. point of view. Only in this way can the entire system function harmoniously and sustainably. It is these important details that are addressed in this absolutely fantastic course that will allow you to reflect on our daily attitude towards ourselves, colleagues, staff, patients, as well as learn to manage your business and career as a leader, presented with complete openness and transparency by two amazing teachers. Plus the atmosphere is welcoming and the course is held in a magnificent location."
“Learning from a diverse group of colleagues was really beneficial to me personally, not just learning from Jorge André and Manuela, but also from the group discussions. The discussions really helped me to get a sense that I was not alone in my struggles and that there were many things that we as dentists need to do, including sharing more and being more open with our needs and desires in order for us all to drive change in this profession. I gained self-awareness and knowledge during these 3 days, and I will absolutely be using some of the tools, resources and learnings from this course to make a difference in my career going forward."
