Hello fellow practitioners! Last weekend, on Sunday to be precise, a close relative asked me about the potential that dentistry has to give you fame, power, and all those things that a lot of people crave to possess: recognition, greatness, world changing potential, maybe prestige... or on other more benevolent tone, the potential to make a huge change for humankind that could influence or help the future generations to come, maybe just research, say writing books, lecturing or doing something great aside traditional dentistry to change history/the world. Leaving a legacy, other than your own practice. She also poder stuff with me about the self, ambition, legacy, continuity and trascendence. Dentistry is fullfiling to me, but probably not for her, who seems to value trascendence of her personality on a far-reaching level. hmmm. and then throws me comparations of other fields like medicine, philosophy, politics, music, arts ... by the way, she thinks that there is no art in dentistry, which I know to be failed (there's a lot of art in my dental practice!), but I must agree that is not the kind of art she is reffering to; creative art, something new and personal, original, rather than working on making something already ideallized (as teeth aesthetics, natural looking pieces, a curator's job perhaps?). Maybe dental practice is of no good option for this relative of mine, although you could perhaps spark some ideas on how a single dental practice can let a practitioner become famous (or infamous), creative and trascendent in a world level. What do you come to think at this view?
