    • Documentary

Dr. Parul Dua Makkar joins Dentist Career Coach and Cancer Patient Warrior/Survivor, Dr. Laura Brenner.
Topics discussed:
Laura and Manu's first connection. Laura's impression from Manu's last article on DentalTown. The importance of feeling understood by others. The barriers to leaving clinical practice. Without fear, there is no courage. The definition of a warrior. Getting comfortable with the idea of dying. If you think about your life, what do you want the story to be? Becoming more comfortable with death, as a culture. The beauty of small things - one bite at a time, one breath at a time. Anger and grief. Karma. Balancing gratitude + striving. One's illness is community-changing. Who are you when you are stripped of identity and constructs? The problem with always trying to be positive. The patient's burden to help others feel comfortable. Laura's words to Manu, today: "This work that you are doing now is so important, your message is important, and you're impacting people.  Thank you for connecting, for opening up our eyes, we just need to have a revolution in dentistry, and thank you for starting this revolution."
