Dentistry Show - 28th February and 1st March 2014 at the NEC Birmingham

The Mentoring Lounge (sponsored by Dentistry Show) was our first speed mentoring event at a dental show and was a exciting and fun experience for everyone involved. We held one session on each day and matched over 12 mentees with suitable mentors. There was a real buzz during the speed mentoring and each mentee got just 5 minutes to talk to each mentor. This forces our guests to not think too much about if they think they are compatible but uses gut instinct to decide. As well as speed mentoring we invited visitors to relax and have a chat with us at the lounge about our Innovation 360 project and how they could get involved as a volunteer. If you are interested in being part of our mentoring events you can sign up HERE.

Confidence in Dentistry Workshop - 17th January 2013 in London

Are you in the the habit of being confident?

Dentists are working in tough and difficult times at the moment.

Remaining confident can be a daily challenge.

Yet we all know that the current situation is down to a lack of confidence!

How much more would you achieve if that little voice in your head would stop telling you that you're not worth it, don't deserve it or that the whole thing is going to come crashing down!

When you deliberately step out and seek new specific and structured ways of thinking you will find that the negative thoughts stop and your confidence increases. You already know it's time to change and think differently, but how can you do this alone?

Heart Your Smile invite you to a full day's workshop of NeuroLinguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Psychological Technniques, presented by Mark Oborn, which will allow you to truly 'Be Confident - and believe you can make THE difference'

BACD Annual Conference - 22nd-24th November 2012 in Manchester

BDA Conference - 26th-28th April 2012 in Manchester

Yvonne Wallace designed these amazing limited edition Heart shaped mugs which we were awarding to people who wrote a story about how they have embraced one of the 9 habits. 252 people wrote their story and soon they will be available to read, inspire and make you laugh on the website. The diversity of the experiences and storytelling ability of the delegates cased to amaze us. As did the cunning other members of the dental trade used to get their hands on one of these coveted mugs. So why did we choose mugs to give away? One of our habits is to "connect" and often it is over a cup of tea or coffee that people take time to listen to their colleagues and share ideas. We would love our industry to talk and share ideas more and see how they can work together for the better of our patients and entire industry.

BDA Conference - 26th-28th April 2012 in Manchester

It was lovely to have frank and open discussions with the leaders of the BDA about how we can all work together. We were having fewer conversations about what is Heart Your Smile and more about how they can engage with us towards a better future. Heart Your Smile is a lithe, dynamic team wanting to make rapid inroads into increasing the attendance at the dentist and therefore driving business to all who work in the industry.
