Jasmin  Haley RDH and I got the chance to sit down at CAREERfusion the first week of January. We were both first-time attendees, and at the end of the third day, we took a few moments to reflect on the experience we were in the middle of.

She opens up about how she has been able to be vulnerable here, and the validation she felt from this meeting.

Jasmin is a hygienist carving her own path as a speaker, blogger, and podcaster. She is adjunct faculty in a hygiene program, and like many, she is temping part time.

She schools me on Brick vs. The Brick, which I completely failed!

She shares her takeaways from CAREERfusion

  1. Imposter syndrome has to go.
  2. Being in intentional with decision making and self-compassionate while working through her career path without holding back.

We reflect on 2016 RDH Under One Roof’s Keynote speaker Colette Carlson’s talk about “making an ask out of yourself”

Jasmin gives her thoughts about the importance of healthy patients and how oral health coaching is an amazing adjunct for patients in the dental office who are trying to control cavities and gum disease.

How getting people to change is difficult, and as a public health instructor “the health belief model” requires that people believe they are at risk for disease and how that often doesn’t happen in a traditional appointment

We talk about the book “The Power of Habit” and habit loops vs keystone habits and how that relates to patient care and behavioral change.

I really enjoyed sitting down with Jasmin, and I look forward to what 2017 holds for her!!
