Special Guest Dr. Bethany Piziks
on The Dental Brief
Dr. Bethany started her own practice in 1997 and continued to practice dentistry till recently. Bethany now focuses on her passion for helping dentists and their teams live more balanced fulfilled lives both in their practice and outside lives. She also specializes in equestrian therapy as an alternative method to handle stress. Dr. Bethany has seen doctors improve their stress levels in many different ways through her guidance as well as by using a product called NuCalm. NuCalm can be used for patients to calm their anxiety before a procedure as well as a way for dental practices and their teams to relax during the workday. It works by shifting you in the stages of mediation.
Dr. Laura Schwindt: Restoring Hearts and Spirits with Dr. Bethany Piziks
Partnering with horses, Dr. Bethany Piziks works with dentists and their teams helping them to reduce stress and anxiety and work better together! Join us as we chat about how horses help humans, the effects of stress, and ways to reduce stress, anxiety, fear, and depression!
Dr. Piziks believes in getting to the root of anxiety and resolving it from where it began. She will also be sharing her excitement about NuCalm, a neuroscience technology that perfectly complements her coaching business!
Dr. Bethany Piziks practiced dentistry for over 20 years, then felt compelled to make a difference in another way. Instead of restoring teeth, she set out to restore hearts & spirits.
Combining her passions of life-coaching and horses, she completed a 2-year masters program called ‘Touched By A Horse’ and became a Certified Equine Gestalt Coach. She now partners with horses to help her clients get to the root of their anxiety, overcome challenges, and savor life’s sacred moments by living more consciously.
I was fired for telling the truth and that’s OK
Back in high school, when I was working at my local Wendy’s, I learned a big lesson about living what’s most important to me. One day a customer ordered a Frosty then changed their mind, so I was told to throw it away. Instead, some friends and I went in the back and ate it. We didn’t think it was any big deal.
Read my blog on DEW Life. I talk about how what seemed to be a traumatic moment became a positive experience in changing my life.

Touched by a Horse Podcast
At a young age, Dr. Bethany Piziks learned she never wanted the lack of money to be the reason she couldn’t have something she loved. Which is why she chose dentistry as a career. After many dark years, she discovered her love of horses and the wisdom of coaching.
The Dr Shoup TV Show
Dentists know more than most, the enormous effect emotions have on the doctor – patient relationship. Many therapeutic modalities have been used to help everyone become emotionally more healthy, at peace, and comfortable with themselves and the world around them. Equine therapy is an emerging area of great healing for the patient battling emotional conflicts. Learn more about the emergence of equine therapy as an alternative to typical sit down discussions.
How horses can help your dental practice incorporate the ‘fifth element’
A dentist-client recently invested in a team retreat with my horses. I own and operate Braveheart Gestalt Coaching. When the dentist checked in, she mentioned feeling alone and experiencing the crushing stress of “doing it all herself.” I was curious. Her team appeared to be talented and committed. What was missing?

The Positive Power of Conflict
published in Dental Economics
Running a successful dental practice is about more than being a great dentist, but what does a successful dental practice actually look like to you? Is it a practice that is thriving financially? One with satisfied patients who actually look forward to maintaining their oral health in partnership with you and your team? Where your team (including you) is cohesive, productive, and happy to come to work every day? These are not mutually exclusive concepts—in fact, a truly successful practice relies on these interdependent components being equally healthy.

The Dentist’s Dilemma
Dentists entered a healing profession that demands high standards of technical expertise, for which we spent years training. Then we discovered that training wasn’t enough to be successful. We also must be team leaders, business managers, marketers, counsellors, debt collectors, and much more. As a result, even though many of us are exceptional clinicians, technologists, surgeons, and more, we struggle with the business of being exceptional practice managers.
There are many reasons for this. Some are skills-based and other reasons are more fundamental, such as typology or personality type, habitual group dynamics learned from as far back as childhood, or a lack of emotional intelligence. These can be the result of overly focusing on skills and academics, or because stress and burnout force us to disconnect emotionally from our patients and practice in order to survive.
